Grove City looks poised to land another senior housing development.

A 130-unit development has been proposed on 4.7 acres east of the intersection of Hoover and Orders roads, near Interstate 71, on land owned by Grove City Church of the Nazarene. The preliminary site plan identifies it as “Homestead Senior Living.”

The applicant appears to be connected to Homestead America, a multifamily-development property-management company based in Columbus. A message seeking comment was left with the company.

Plans submitted to the city show a single three-story building with a 39,600-square-foot footprint containing one- and two-bedroom units catering to people 55 and older. It will have a central “town square” for activities, fitness and social events, plus outdoor green space, covered porches, a dog park and a patio.

“The life of the complex will revolve around a resident appointed council which will put the residents at the center of creating and managing programs tailored to their interests,” according to the project narrative. “The impact will be an energizing, vibrant community for Grove City area seniors who want to engage and achieve their highest quality of life.”

Homestead America owns over a dozen residential complexes in Central Ohio, many apartments in Downtown or the suburbs. It also owns Hampton Woods, a senior living facility off Dublin-Granville Road.

Dublin-based Andrews Architects is listed as the site architect, while Columbus-based E.P. Ferris & Associates is listed as engineer.
