The Danish Home of Chicago Breaks Ground on 14-Unit Expansion

by Jeff Shaw

CHICAGO — The Danish Home of Chicago, an independent seniors housing community in Chicago, has broken ground on a 14-unit expansion.

The Danish Home of Chicago was established in 1897 by 12 Danish women to provide a comfortable, safe life for elderly Danes. Today, the boutique, nonprofit community offers all levels of care to people 62 and older without regard to nationality, faith or sexual orientation. 

Currently home to 41 seniors when fully occupied, the new Garden Suites will allow an additional 14 people to live at the community.

The project team includes Berglund, general contractor; HED, architect and structural engineer; ECT, civil engineer; IMEG Corp., MEP/FP engineer; Olson Landscape Architecture, landscape architect; Clevenger Associates, foodservice; and Old National Bank, financing.
