The Glastonbury Town Council unanimously approved a proposal for a 75,000-square-foot assisted living and Alzheimer’s disease care facility at the Gateway Medical Campus on Tuesday.
The council had originally approved the plan for the new facility in June, with construction set to begin last August. However, when completing the final documentation for closing on the project, a lender raised concern that the wording on the council’s action didn’t include a specific date for the zoning change on the 13-acre property to take effect, Town Manager Richard J. Johnson said.
The town then consulted with their attorney to change the wording on the documentation, and then had to have additional public hearings at both the planning and zoning commission and the Town Council.

The planning and zoning commission unanimously approved the plan earlier this month.
During Tuesday’s meeting, Project Engineer Robert Barneschi and Director of Construction Carl Guy reviewed plans for the facility, which will include a three-story assisted living building with 91 apartments with either one or two bedroom apartments. The facility will also include a 44-bed Alzheimer’s wing, operated by Hearth Management.
