Capitol Seniors Housing (CSH) says it has started construction of a $30 million Highland Park assisted living and memory care community. The three-story, 72,000-sq. ft. community with 86 residential suites will be operated by Atria Senior Living.
The project at 1000 Central Ave. is scheduled to be completed by the second quarter of 2020.
“We’re very excited to redevelop this area of Highland Park and bring a top-quality senior living community to its residents,” CSH managing partner Scott Stewart said in a statement. “Residents and visitors of Atria Highland Park are going to be amazed with this community, which will offer all of the amenities senior adults desire. They also will enjoy an engaging community with a terrific social life supported by events, activities and outings.”
The project on a 1.8 acre site was designed by Mosely Architects from Richmond, VA and interior design firm Studio Six 5 based in Austin, TX.
“We are most appreciative of area leaders who worked with us to bring this project forward, recognizing the opportunity to develop an older part of town into something very special which will serve the needs of a growing older adult population,” said Joe McElwee, CHS principal – development.
In addition to Atria Highland Park, Capitol Seniors Housing also owns the Arbor Terrace in Naperville and is constructing Atria Glenview, an 83-suite senior living community in Glenview.
