Our newest proposed project was recently introduced to the Chicago City Council. The beautiful Kilpatrick Renaissance is a 98-unit affordable senior building, and will be located on a 1.14-acre site at the corner of Kilpatrick and Berteau. This quiet corner is the former home of the Hunt Screw plant, and is in the triangle area connecting the neighborhoods of Portage Park, Jefferson Park and Old Irving.
“Plans call for a four-story building with a rowhouse-style facade, outdoor patio and terrace, club room, fitness center, library, computer station, and walking path and park. The City’s Department of Housing and Economic Development has said that this project was chosen for tax credits because of a lack of senior housing in the area, the proximity of the site to public transportation and shopping, and the experience of the development team,” reports Brian Nadig of Chicago’s Northwest Side PRESS.
“We are very excited about this project,” says Paul Russo, Project Development Manager of The Renaissance Companies, “because it addresses a need for the neighborhood. The Kilpatrick Renaissance will afford the opportunity for local seniors 55+ to stay in the neighborhood that they helped to build.”
Stay tuned for updates; The Kilpatrick Renaissance will begin construction some time in 2013. We can’t wait!
