Alexi Senior Living is extremely proud to announce that local elected officials took part in a ceremonial groundbreaking for our senior living community on Tuesday this week.
The $32 million development is due to be built on 13 acres of land. The project is located southeast of U.S. 30 (Lincolnway Highway) and Ridgeland Avenue. Following the initial construction activity, the first phase of the project will be to open to residents in October 2020. The facility will be built in two phases, with the initial phase having 55 one and two-bedroom assisted living units and 20 memory care units. Work on the second phase, which will contain independent living apartments with underground parking, will start next year. A walking path will be built around the perimeter of the site.
The senior living community will primarily serve members of the local community within 10 miles of the site. As well as Matteson, this will include communities such as Frankfort, Tinley Park, Crete, Orland Park, Mokena, Chicago Heights and Homewood. However, the senior living community will also be open to people from farther afield.
Matteson Mayor Sheila Chalmers-Currin said village officials are “excited” about the project, and that the development is “greatly needed.” Furthermore, State Rep. Debbie Meyers-Martin, D-Olympia Fields, said at the ceremony that housing options for seniors is “definitely an issue that has to be addressed” and “will be a challenge going forward in the 21st century,”
