McShane Construction Company is currently constructing a new senior living development, known as The Oaks at Algonquin. The firm was selected by Spectrum Retirement Communities to provide comprehensive construction services for the 166-unit residence.
Over the past 30 years, McShane has constructed more than 4,500 residential units. The Oaks at Algonquin, located in Algonquin, Illinois, is one of four senior living projects that the firm currently has underway.
“The Oaks at Algonquin will feature a floorplan designed to support the community’s provision of different levels of care for residents,” said Jeffrey Raday, president of McShane. “This forethought, combined with the excellent selection of amenities, will make The Oaks at Algonquin a great choice for those seeking senior housing options.”
Designed by Vessel Architecture, the H-shaped building will accommodate independent living, assisted living and memory care units. Each independent living unit will feature a full kitchen, and assisted living units will incorporate a kitchenette with a refrigerator and microwave.
The property offers a vast array of amenities for tenants, including three restaurants, a pub, salon, media lounge, theater, health club, doctor and therapist offices and a community center with a demo kitchen. The Oaks at Algonquin will feature outdoor living space that includes a rooftop deck and fire pit, grill area, dining patio, memory care garden and well-landscaped courtyards.
The three-story building will feature wood frame construction with an exterior of masonry, stone veneer, shake and panel siding and architectural shingles. Completion of The Oaks at Algonquin is slated for January 2022.
