JEFFERSONVILLE — A chain microbrew pub new to Indiana and a 103-unit assisted living facility are the first confirmed tenants of Denton Floyd Real Estate’s 70-acre Bridgepointe Commons project along Ind. 62, north of the roundabouts. 

Growler USA, which specializes in beer-infused food and craft beverages, including beer, kombucha tea, draft wine, hard cider and mead, plans to open a 19th location at Bridgepointe Commons. The location is the restaurant’s first in Indiana, Kentucky or Illinois. The chain was started in Eugene, Oregon and has 11 other locations “coming soon” to different states, according to the company’s website. 

Brandon Denton, co-owner of Denton Floyd, said the restaurant will have a large patio and fire pits for gatherings. 

“It’s going to be really nice,” he said. “A great place, like I said, for the community to go and have a beer or have a nice meal or sit down and watch the game.”

Construction has already started on the restaurant, and Denton expects for it to open this summer. 

The assisted living facility will be operated by Vitality Senior Services, a new Southern Indiana senior care company that is also in charge of the future Mansion on Main development in New Albany. 

Unlike Mansion on Main, the assisted living facility will be built from the ground up (Mansion on Spring is a reuse of a former M. Fine building). But the Jeffersonville facility will be similar in size to the New Albany facility. 

Construction on the facility is expected to start this fall. 

Bridgepointe Commons is slated to contain more restaurants, a small strip center, more retail, hotels and a medical campus.
