Richmond senior apartment complex plans to start construction in spring

25 accessible units will have rents ranging from $600-$800, project manager says

RICHMOND – Plans for a $6 million, 22,000-square-foot senior apartment complex in the village are underway, and construction could start this spring, Lindsey Haines said.

Haines, project manager with Chicago-based Full Circle Communities, said the Creekview independent senior apartments are a needed development in Richmond.

“There just aren’t a lot of rental housing options for seniors, especially accessible units,” Haines said.

The building will have 25 accessible units, with four two-bedroom and 21 one-bedroom units at 5615 Liberty St., Richmond, Haines said.

Double units will cost about $800 a month, and single units will cost about $600 a month, she said. The apartments are for people age 55 and older.

The building will feature amenities including a computer lab, library, community room and property management office. On-site services such as transportation services, case management, medical screenings, health and fitness resources and other community activities also will be available, according to a flier from Full Circle Communities.

The lot currently is vacant, Haines said. She said after the village has a public hearing and the rezoning of the property is finalized, officials hope to start construction by late spring or early summer.

Village President Pete Koenig said Full Circle Communities has presented the project to the Village Board before, and the demographics of the village make it a needed development.

A public hearing regarding the project will take place at the Richmond Plan Commission at 7 p.m. April 27 at Village Hall, 5600 Hunter Drive, Richmond.
