Masonic Homes plans senior housing project

Nicole Candler, Masonic Homes senior vice president, said the organization plans to break ground early next year on the 48-unit Grove Pointe assisted-living complex. It will go behind the Olmstead. An old facility has been torn down to make way for the new project.

The Louisville Metro Council has pending a measure requesting that the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority issue tax-exempt bonds to finance the Masonic Homes housing.

An existing housing development at the Masonic Homes, called Miralea, is another active lifestyle community.  Its first phase was completed in 2012 and achieved 95 percent occupancy in eight months.

Founded in 1867, Masonic Homes of Kentucky’s services include independent living, assisted living, personal care, rehabilitation therapies, memory care, skilled nursing care, home care, dialysis and child development. It owns and operates Masonic Home of Louisville, Masonic Home of Shelbyville, The Village Active Lifestyle Community, Sproutlings Pediatric Day Care & Preschool, Miralea Active Lifestyle Community and Spring Hill Village Retirement Community.
