On April 16, developer and London resident Paul Gross broke ground on construction of an upscale restaurant, 60 independent living apartments, and 60 active living condominiums. The development is located on land adjacent to Gross’s Bluebird Retirement Community on State Route 56 SW in London.

Gross, members of the Madison County Chamber of Commerce, London Mayor Pat Closser and members of London city council, and Bluebird resident Charles Stafford, founder of the third-generation company heading up the construction, were among those who took part in a groundbreaking ceremony.

The first phase of construction will focus on the restaurant.

“The county needs a fun, hip and really nice place to eat,” Gross said. “The restaurant will feature locally sourced meats and will offer a fine-dining atmosphere for those who want a sit-down meal and a high-end bar for more casual dining.”

The new development is located adjacent to the Bluebird Retirement Community.
