Norwalk’s Bennett Pointe to provide senior living
Northwest Ohio has recently seen an influx of senior living development. Senior living communities owned by Otterbein, Primrose Retirement Communities, and Birchaven Heights are just a few of the newest facilities to bring investment into our region. Now, Norwalk, Ohio is the site of a major new senior living development.
Bennett Pointe, a $12 million project to include 60 senior apartment homes, is approximately 70% complete with occupancy expected to begin this month. The Norwalk, Ohio facility will offer two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments measuring, on average, 850 square feet. RDL Architects, Inc., located in Cleveland, is the architect for Bennett Pointe.
“It’s a basic single-story slab on grade elevations with covered front porches and rear patios,” stated John Leonard, The NRP Group.
“With the mild winter, construction has been relatively easy.”
