GLENDALE - Silverado Senior Living has plans to build a 53-unit assisted living facility at the northwest corner of Green Bay and Range Line roads.

The 2.3-acre property at 7800 N. Green Bay Road is home to a former Masonic lodge owned by The Mandel Group, which planned to build a condominium development in 2006. If Silverado's plans are approved by Glendale city officials, the Masonic lodge would be demolished and replaced with a two-story, 48,000-square-foot building serving 85 residents.

The majority of the 85 residents at the proposed assisted living center would be receiving memory care for dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The building would have an enclosed 5,000-square-foot courtyard to prevent patients from leaving the complex. An enclosed garden would also be located on the northwest side of the building. The driveway entrance to the facility would be off of Range Line Road.

Silverado plans to have 85 employees spread across five shifts, with a maximum of 35 employees working on any shift. Two to four nurses will be on staff at any given time. The parking lot will have 57 spaces.

The project construction cost is estimated to be about $11.5 million. If approved by city officials, Silverado would like to begin site construction work in June and complete the project by June 2018.

Silverado operates assisted living facilities across the country, including facilities in Brookfield and Menomonee Falls.

Silverado's proposal would require the property to be rezoned using the city's planned unit development process. The Glendale Plan Commission will hold a public hearing on the rezoning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 7.
