LGBT Senior Housing Construction Projected to Start at Month's End
LAKEVIEW — The LGBT-friendly senior housing facility to be built near Addison and Halsted will start construction at the end of this month, with a projected completion date of next summer, officials said.
Center spokesman Tom Elliott told Triangle Neighbors last week that they expect construction to start at the end of May. The facility will incorporate the historic former police station and will include ground floor commercial retail.
In March, the city approved financing for the $26 million project, funded by a mix of federal funds, low-income housing tax credits and private loans, said Hume An, director of real estate development at Heartland Housing.
People aged 55 and up who meet income requirements for the facility will be able to reserve a space about 3-6 months before it opens, An said.
The development will host an official groundbreaking on June 3.
