CHICAGO — Belmont Village Senior Living has opened Belmont Village Lincoln Park, its first community in the city of Chicago and fifth within Chicagoland. Located in the heart of the vibrant Lincoln Park neighborhood, the new community will be the company’s 30th nationwide.
The 120,500-square-foot, seven-story community is built adjacent to the new Lincoln Common, a mixed-use development on the former site of Children’s Memorial Hospital. The property is surrounded by theaters, parks, public transportation, dining, shopping and entertainment.
“Knowing all the unique opportunities an urban environment offers our residents, we’ve searched for some time to find the perfect location within Chicago,” says Patricia Will, Belmont Village founder and CEO. “We found it in Lincoln Park.”
Belmont Village Lincoln Park will be licensed as a Sheltered Care Facility that houses 149 private residences for assisted living and memory care.
Architect Antunovich Associates designed the property to closely replicate the original Nellie Black building, which was built in 1932 and housed nurses and interns. Belmont Village Lincoln Park is a redevelopment of that property. The community is pursuing LEED Silver certification with contractor W.E. O’Neil.
