WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday morning in Westminster Village, a senior living facility in West Lafayette. The site will be home to four new buildings for the senior living facility.
At the corner of Cumberland Avenue and Salisbury, the site will be the future home of three new hybrid home residential buildings and a new wellness center.
Construction will be in two phases with phase one including the wellness center and one of the hybrid home buildings. Both phases of the project are expected to take at least two to three years to complete.
Staff members and residents are already eager for the new facilities.
“We are calling them hybrid homes because they are sort of a cross between living in your own house, single family home, or living in an apartment,” explained Vicki Gregory, Westminister Village executive director.
Once completed, each hybrid home can house up to 108 new residents and at least 10 to 15 new employees.
