A senior housing facility — the first of its kind for Lake in the Hills — soon will open its doors.
After months of construction, The Residences, 2601 Village Hall Drive, will begin allowing new tenants to move into the 92-unit facility March 15, said Pam Boulin, property manager for The Residences.
A handful of residents will begin moving in March 15, and more will continue to move in through the rest of the month, Boulin said.
“Fifty percent of our units are leased so far,” Boulin said. “We have been accepting applications for just over a month and a half.”
Located across the street from Village Hall and Lincoln Prairie Elementary School, the senior community for those age 55 and older has studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments available for rent.
Some of the facilities amenities include a computer room and library business center, fitness center, on-site laundry facilities, patio, conference room and TV lounge with a large-screen high-definition television.
The addition of The Residences is a positive sign of growth for Lake in the Hills, which has seen new construction and the number of building permits issued plummet in recent years.
Tim Hedges with Chicago-based DKI Real Estate told Lake in the Hills Patch in July 2011 that based on market research, there was a need and desire for apartments geared toward seniors in the village.
Prior to The Residences, Lake in the Hills residents likely had to go to Crystal Lake or Woodstock to find apartments that cater to seniors, Hedges said.
