A 72,000 sq.- ft., four-story senior housing apartment building for low-income seniors 62 and over in Bellwood.
The development and construction team includes F.H. Paschen, Evergreen Real Estate Group, and Weese Langley Weese Architects LTD, who have partnered with the Village of Bellwood to design and construct the 80-unit structure.
“It’s a beautiful day in Bellwood,” said Mayor Andre Harvey. “We needed to do something more for the seniors in our community. We had a vision of what we wanted – a transformative development – and thanks to the help and collaboration from our development, design, construction, and financing partners, it’s becoming a reality.”
The site at 25th and Washington Avenues was previously a Walgreens and has been vacant for 11 years.
“F.H. Paschen is excited to partner with this team and the Village of Bellwood on this project. We look forward to delivering a first-class apartment building for the Bellwood community,” F.H. Paschen senior vice-president Leo Wright said in a statement.
