This week, the Glendale Heights Plan Commission approved the design by FitzGerald Associates for an 80-unit active senior living community adjacent to Bloomingdale Road.
The four story building features a grand entry with vehicular drop-off and comfortable lounge areas, a dining room and game room. A large outdoor courtyard will act as a focal point for the facility and includes a landscaped patio for games, reading, and socializing around seating areas and outdoor cooking amenities.
Each of the three residential floors have rooms for planned activities – exercise, physical therapy, a library, a saloon, arts and crafts, and a private dining room with room for 70 residents and guests to enjoy a meal together. The one and two-bedroom apartments are spacious and feature kitchens with lower countertops and Energy Star appliances. Each apartment has a private balcony.
