The Great Lakes Region of Ryan Companies US, Inc. (Ryan) has started construction of Clarendale of Schererville, a $40 million, 177-unit senior living development, further expanding the reach of the Clarendale brand first established two years ago.
Clarendale of Schererville will open in the spring of 2017 and offer three hospitality-based lifestyle neighborhoods – independent living, assisted living and memory care – all under one roof.
This is the third senior living community in the partnership between Ryan and Life Care Servicesä, an LCS® Company (LCS), and equity partner Harrison Street Real Estate Capital (Harrison).
The development is being constructed on an approximately 9.0-acre site at the northwest corner of U.S. Route 30/Lincoln Highway and Burr Street, about five miles west of Interstate 65.
The three-story Clarendale of Schererville will feature 85 independent living residences, 38 assisted living residences and 54 memory care residences. Following the general footprint that has been established in Mokena, Ill., and Algonquin, Ill., apartments at the Schererville community will range from approximately 720 square feet to 1,300 square feet for independent living, and from 300 square feet to 890 square feet for assisted living and memory care. The entire development will consist of approximately 206,000 square feet.
New amenities will include a movie theater room for regular movie nights, and a crafts room. Those features join an already abundant list of social amenities that includes a bistro, a pub and billiards room, a club room and library, living rooms with fireplaces, a vaulted multipurpose room, a wellness center with a full service salon, a fitness room and a private patio and courtyard.
The community will be managed by Life Care Services, An LCS Company of Des Moines, Iowa. The Midwest-based senior living expert has brought uniquely customized senior living lifestyles to over 35,000 residents across the United States in over 125 communities. Founded in 1971, Life Care Services is the third largest manager of senior living properties in the country.
The project’s architect is PFB Architects of Chicago, Illinois.
