A CATHOLIC aged care provider plans to build a six-storey nursing home in Jolimont.
Southern Cross Care has lodged designs with the Town of Cambridge for 75 independent living and 44 high care units on Salvado Road.
It would also comprise a cafe, gym and 109 basement car parking bays, as well as bays for bikes and mobility scooters.

The proposed $55 million development is part of the Parkside Walk estate created by the Town and Landcorp on the site of a former nursery and depot.
The location, between Matthews Netball Centre and Henderson Park, is close to public transport, shops and dining options, public open space and a short commute to the Perth CBD.
The precinct is expected to provide up to 350 dwellings once finished.
Apartments are currently selling at the adjacent One Mabel Park residential development, with other neighbouring sites yet to be developed.
Southern Cross Care runs existing residential care homes and retirement villages in Rossmoyne, Forrestfield, Success, Shelley, West Leederville, North Perth, Hilton and regional WA.
