Assisted Living Facility Planned for Machesney Town Center
Construction to commence on first phase in 2017
MACHESNEY PARK, IL (March 20, 2017) – TLC Illinois, LLC and the Village of Machesney Park are proud to announce plans to develop a 96-apartment, assisted living facility in Machesney Park, Illinois. The facility, Towncenter Living Community, will be located on 6-acres adjacent to Machesney Town Center in Machesney Park, Illinois. This location is well-situated for residents, with nearby retail shopping, restaurants and local services both in the Town Center and along 173 Machesney Park Gateway.
TLC has hired PG Architecture Design Build of Rockford, Illinois to provide complete design and construction services. The $15M, 3-story facility will be constructed in two phases with the first phase consisting of 60 units and the second phase adding another 36 units. Set in a park-like setting, the facility will be constructed as a contemporary, prairie-style structure, complete with walking paths and outdoor areas for residents to enjoy. The facility will house full amenities and many community spaces for its residents including: a full restaurant and dining space, outdoor dining and seating area, community room, exercise room, craft room, library area, hair salon, movie room, gift shop and more.
The project is a product of a collaborative partnership between TLC and the Village, as the development will take place on property currently owned by Machesney Park. Machesney Park Mayor Jerry Bolin said “In addition to over 40 new jobs that will be created, this project is a milestone in the Town Center turnaround that is a huge plus for the whole Village.”
Resident services will include private apartments, maintenance-free living, a resident call and security system, three restaurant-style meals a day, 24-hour staffing, transportation services, housekeeping services, laundry services, daily activities, family activities, spiritual activities, salon services, daily exercise activities, and free wi-fi. Additional services may include: medication management, bathing, dressing, physician coordination, therapeutic diet needs and on-call specialty health services.
Construction will begin in Summer of 2017 with a completion date of Fall 2018.
