Grace Assisted Living expects to open an 87-unit, 80,000- to 90,000-square-foot home in April near the Franklin Road freeway offramp in Caldwell.
It will be the Boise company’s seventh assisted living home. Caldwell will give Grace Assisted Living a presence in each of the largest Treasure Valley cities and Twin Falls.
Caldwell will have the largest Grace home built at one time, though a memory care addition now under construction in Twin Falls will make the Magic Valley home to the largest, co-owner Linda Hines said.
The Caldwell home will have 65 assisted living units and 22 memory care units with separate kitchens and dining rooms in both areas, she said.
The Architects Office in Boise was the architect and Mark Guho Construction of Boise is the general contractor.
A Caldwell home has been in the works for a couple years, Hines said.
“It was extremely difficult to find a piece of land big enough for us,” she said.
Hines’ son, Grace Assisted co-owner Colter Kamo, is friends with Ben Zamzow, chief operating officer at Rocky Mountain Companies, which had bought 21.5-acres of undeveloped land in Caldwell at 21st Avenue and Chicago Street.
Rocky Mountain sold 8.13 acres to Grace behind the six-pad College Marketplace retail center Rocky Mountain intends to build along 21st Avenue.
“As the community ages, we want a quality place for people to stay so they don’t have to leave Caldwell,” said Keri Smith-Sigman, economic development specialist at the city of Caldwell.
