Officials are making construction progress on a new $46 million senior living facility in Centerville that is part of major development happening on the site of a former farm.

The Randall Residence of Centerville will be located at the intersection of Sheehan and West Social Row roads, at the former site of the Rabold Farm.

Randall Residence will be a licensed residential care facility (assisted living and memory care) that provides assistance with daily activities for residents aged 55 and older. It will have a 24-hour nursing staff as well as caregivers.

The 171,021-square-foot facility planned for Centerville will offer 84 quadplex condo-style apartments, 60 independent living apartments, 56 assisting living apartments and 42 memory support apartments.

“The walls are up on the independent living wing, with others likely coming soon afterward,” said Andrew Rodney, city planner and zoning administrator. “Underground utilities continue to be installed. The future Sawgrass Boulevard has been excavated.”

The condo-style apartment floor plans will offer two sizes of two-bedroom and two-car garage options, according to the company. The independent living and assisted living apartments will be a mix of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.

The campus will feature walking trails, multiple dining options, a theater and a pub. Medical and non-medical support services will be available at the facility, according to the company.

Rodney said that Woodland Greens, a single-family housing development, will occupy nearly a third of the open former farmland, to the north of the Randall Residence.

“Woodland Greens has 65 home lots, with 26 home lots and one pond lot in Section One nearest to Paragon Road,” Rodney said. “The remaining lots will be developed in subsequent sections.”

Rick Coley, director of business development for project developer Equity Construction Solutions, said the project is expected to be finished next year.

“We are estimating that the Randall Residence will be completed in May of 2019,” he said. “At Woodland Green, we are looking to pave at the end of July and the sanitation and water are installed. It will be completed in August of 2018.”

In 2013, an 80-unit assisted living and dementia care facility under the Randall Residence umbrella opened its doors on South County Road 25A at Evanston Road in Tipp City.
