Kemper House (Proprietors Rd/Worthington Foods Site)
The Kemper House, an Alzheimer's, dementia and memory care facility, is proposed on the former Worthington Foods site on the northwest corner of Proprietor's and Dublin Granville Road. Developers have requested to rezone the 4.8 acre site from the I-1 District (Restricted Industrial) to a Planned Unit Development (PUD). They have proposed 4 interconnected buildings, totaling approximately 50,000 sq. ft. in size. The proposal includes 54 private and semi-private rooms.
The Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) and Architectural Review Board (ARB) have reviewed the site plan and preliminary architecture. Based on feedback from the ARB/MPC, additional revisions are being made to the plans. The project is expected to come back to the ARB/MPC for further discussion at the December 14, 2017 meeting.
After the ARB/MPC meeting, a recommendation will be made to CIty Council for the planned use, as required for a PUD. ARB/MPC will then make the final approval on architectural plans.
