Affordable Developments

Since its inception, the North West Housing Partnership (NWHP) has been a leader in developing affordable and senior rental housing. To date, NWHP has developed over 400 units of affordable rental housing for seniors throughout the North and West suburbs of Chicago.

Forest Oaks – Forest Park, Illinois

Forest Park is now home to Forest Oaks Senior Apartments, a 56 unit pet-friendly development offering one and two-bedroom affordable apartments.

This brand new, affordable 55 and over community combines luxury living with affordable rents. Each unit provides an in-unit washer and dryer, a fully equipped kitchen, and a private balcony. Indoor parking is a welcomed feature for our residents during those frigid, snowy winter months. This community also provides 24-hour security, weekly continental breakfast, and a vast array of scheduled activities.

Looking to get a breath of fresh air? Forest Oak’s prime location simply can’t be beaten. Located directly off Harlem Avenue, our residents appreciate the quick 5-minute walk to Whole Foods, Pet Co, Walgreens, and more. Interested in some friendly competition? Circle Bowling Lanes are located next door. And for those without their own form of transportation, the CTA blue line is a brief two-minute walk.

This unbeatable community is perfect for seniors looking for not only affordable rents but also friendships, safety, and activities!

Sugar Grove Senior Living – Sugar Grove, Illinois

Sugar Grove Senior Living is a newly constructed independent senior living community, which opened its doors in October 2015. PIRHL, LLC, through a joint venture with North West Housing Partnership, developed this housing option for independent seniors to address the absence of affordable senior housing in the community and general market area.

Designed to promote an active and community-oriented lifestyle, the age-restricted rental housing development includes a three-story building with 60 units and is affordably priced to accommodate seniors on a fixed income. Ten percent of the apartments serve seniors at the market rate, and there are multiple options of one and two-bedroom units ranging in size from approximately 650 to 900 square feet. The first level of the development includes management services and community spaces for the residents, such as a fitness center, a resident supportive services office, and a multipurpose / community room that transitions to an outdoor patio space that can be used for social gatherings and resident activities. The property also includes an on-site walking path, which connects to a 2-mile community bike path. Additionally, comprehensive supportive service coordination will not only help seniors gain access to myriad services, but also to volunteer and activity programming, and lifelong learning opportunities. Click here to view the list of amenities for Sugar Grove Senior Living.

The development is being managed by Ludwig and Company and is currently accepting applications.
