SOUTH AMBOY — Foundation work has begun for construction of The Venetian Care & Rehabilitation Center, a state-of-art facility in South Amboy which will combine the best of modern design and technology with an old-world feel.
“We are very excited to begin work on the site and to contribute to the redevelopment of the new South Amboy waterfront area,” said Hyman Jacobs, Founder and CEO of Windsor Healthcare Communities. The Venetian is scheduled to be complete by Spring 2013.
Jacobs and his son Michael, Windsor Healthcare Vice President, met with South Amboy Mayor Fred Henry this week to discuss plans for The Venetian following the mayor’s State of the City address.
The Venetian will be a four-story, 93,000 square foot facility with three floors of resident rooms and a ground floor containing common areas for fine dining, two rehabilitation gyms, administrative offices and central support services.
“The Venetian will bring 200 construction jobs to the area, and after opening, will employ approximately 200 people,” said Hyman Jacobs.
Henry said, “This is a win-win for South Amboy. With the Venetian, we will add another great ratable to the city and many jobs.” He anticipated that with the increase in traffic down Broadway, “more customers will be drawn to the business district, which will be fabulous for the city.”
“We are thrilled to be part of the Southern Redevelopment Plan of South Amboy, and we believe this will be the perfect site for the residents of the Venetian and will contribute to South Amboy,” said Michael Jacobs. “We are delighted to be working with Mayor Henry on this project.”
The Venetian will be within walking distance of downtown and the waterfront area. It is also near the new YMCA and Recreation Center, which opened in 2010. Adjacent to the Venetian site will be 88 town homes built by Woodmont Properties.
The Venetian will have 120 long term and 60 short term beds, two large rehabilitation gyms, multiple dining rooms, large resident rooms with individual heating and cooling controls, flat-panel television and wireless internet in each room, and much more.
