After more than 15 years of planning, Taylor Johnson client Evergreen Real Estate Group recently celebrated the groundbreaking of Ravenswood Senior Living, a 193-unit affordable rental community at 4515 N. Winchester Ave. in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. Evergreen representatives joined 47th Ward Ald. Matt Martin and officials from the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) and other partners to mark the start of construction on the pioneering $81 million project that will convert the former Ravenswood Hospital — which was built in 1974 and has been vacant since 2002 — into much-needed affordable senior housing. It will be one of the first developments in the country to offer both independent living and supportive living for low-income seniors in a single location, allowing residents to age in place as their needs and lives change. We shared news of the project milestone with real estate media outlets, securing coverage in Bisnow Chicago, Block Club Chicago, Chicago Architecture, Chicago Connect, GlobeSt.com, Seniors Housing Business and Senior Housing News.
