Anthem Memory Care Granted Special Use Permit to Build in Chicago Suburb

Ore.-based Anthem Memory Care recently received a special use permit to build a memory care facility in Oak Lawn, Ill., a southwest suburb of Chicago, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Last week, the Oak Lawn Board of Trustees voted 4-2 in approval for the project, paving the way for Anthem to build a residential care facility on property owned by Southwest Chicago Christian School near 101st Street and Major Avenue.

Anthem, which operates memory care communities in California, Colorado, Illinois and Kansas, last summer reached at $1.55 million development agreement with the school to purchase the land, but the deal was contingent upon the approval of the special use permit, writes the Tribune.

With that hurdle now cleared, the company can submit various permit applications and prepare detailed construction drawings that will be submitted to the village for review.

If all goes according to plan, Anthem could begin construction of the two-story, 66-unit facility by September, said Isaac Scott, principal at Anthem in the Tribune article.

The first phase of construction will comprise 30 assisted living and 30 memory care apartments. Hubbell estimates the project will cost $12 million, with plans to continue the Edencrest series in Ankeny and Norwalk, Iowa.

Beaverdale is the latest assisted living community built by Hubbell and managed by Senior Housing Management. The first building, Edencrest at Riverwoods, opened mid-2014 in southeast Des Moines. The second, Edencrest at Green Meadows, opened February 1, 2016, in Johnston, Iowa.
