A company planning to build a new long-term care home in Sarnia has been granted an extension by city council to finalize purchase of the property.

Sarnia agreed in May of 2021 to sell five acres of municipal land at 1597 London Line to Revera Inc. for the new senior home, to replace the current Sumac Lodge on Blackwell Road.

The selling price was $250,000.

Revera has now twice requested and been granted an extension to complete due diligence on the property.

The new facility is expected to have 156 new beds and 100 upgraded beds. The property, which is flag-shaped, has a narrow access onto London Line and was purchased by the city in 2003 as part of a larger land holding associated with the Research & Business Park off Modeland Road.
