CEDARVILLE, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – A major expansion for a senior living community in Centerville kicks off Tuesday.

Bethany Village, which is home to more than 700 residents, will break ground on its $42 million retirement facility.

The plan is to demolish an old building and auditorium to make way for a new assisted living building called Crescent Crossing.

The facility will be even bigger than the one being knocked down. Crescent Crossing will span 90,000 square feet and offer 74 assisted living suites.

“This is a renovated nursing home room that we started using for assisted living,” says Bethany Village’s VP of Marketing, Jackie D’Aurora. “That was the standard many years ago, but that’s not the current standard that folks are looking for.”

Crescent Crossing will also include a small theater and cafe. Construction is expected to wrap up in December 2018.

Tuesday’s groundbreaking ceremony starts at 3 p.m.. When finished the new facility will create 50 new jobs at Bethany Village.
