McShane Construction Company cut the ribbon on Heart’s Place Apartments, a supportive housing complex in Arlington Heights, Illinois completed on behalf of the Housing Opportunity Development Corporation and repeat client, UP Development. The architect of record was Cordogan Clark & Associates.
“Individuals with disabilities are often overlooked when it comes to the housing market,” said Jeffrey A. Raday, president of McShane Construction Company. “However, a necessary part of supporting this group is providing for their housing needs. We are proud that Heart’s Place Apartments will achieve that goal.”
Heart’s Place Apartments will act as permanent housing for families, targeting people who live with a mental illness or other disability that requires access to support services. It is located in a well-established area along Dundee Road that offers convenient access to stores, banks, recreational areas, healthcare facilities and public schools. This will provide tenants with the opportunity to find employment in a variety of industries close to home. Additionally, tenants will have access to a suburban PACE bus route with a stop just a block from the complex.
The 18,790-square-foot complex is located at 120 W. Boeger Drive on a site that was vacant for more than a decade prior to its construction. Heart’s Place incorporates 18 one- and two-bedroom units into two stories with wood frame construction. Additionally, there is an on-site laundry room, a community room and support staff offices. The grounds of the property feature ample parking and attractive landscaping for tenants to enjoy.
