Construction has started on a 258-unit senior living project in Chicago’s Six Corners retail district.
The senior living community is located at the corner of Irving Park Rd. and Milwaukee Ave. that will cover 1.25 acres of the four-acre land parcel known as The Point at Six Corners.
Construction and new infrastructure will begin on the 10-story, mixed-use, retail and senior living property that will include 258 residential units made up of independent living, assisted living and memory care units, and 11 affordable independent living units. There will be a variety of dynamic public spaces around the site and an outdoor sky terrace on the fourth floor, as well as 18,000 sq. ft. of street-level retail space.
The surrounding community will have access to three distinct public areas, including a plaza with benches and bike racks, a pedestrian plaza with shade trees, additional bike racks, outdoor seating and a custom art display, and a mid-block pedestrian connection to increase convenience for pedestrians to walk around the Six Corners district. There will also be 215 off-street parking spaces.
The project will create approximately 650 union construction jobs and 200 permanent jobs over a 20-year period.
The project is designed by Ryan A+E.
