CROWN POINT | A retirement community first proposed in 2010 will remain on Crown Point planning books for another year.
Stone Terrace Village had been proposed as a continuing care retirement center on part of a 95-acre site southwest of the intersection of Interstate 65 and U.S. 231. The project never moved beyond early planning stages.
Subdivision of the land for the project was approved three years ago. An extension granted Monday by the Plan Commission leaves subdivision plats in place for another year.
The same 95-acre site had been eyed earlier this year for a project by Ameriplex developer Holladay Properties. Those plans have not advanced.
Several levels of housing to accommodate seniors' changing needs had been proposed in Stone Terrace Village, ranging from independent living to assisted living, skilled nursing care and memory loss care.
The project also was to include a commercial development on part of the 95 acres, which is owned by Great Lakes Financial Resources.
Holladay Properties approached city planners in August for discussion of a complex with potential for medical-related and other businesses, warehousing operations, assisted living for seniors and a hotel.
A multifamily housing segment of the proposal met with disapproval from nearby residents. Holladay Properties in October withdrew a request to rezone the land and has not been back to the city with any further requests.
