Seniors have many housing options

DANVILLE — Senior housing developments continue to boom in the area.

The Danville City Council this month approved the latest plans for Mercy Housing Lakefront to build a 280-unit senior housing complex called Wisdom Crossing at Elizabeth Center at the former Provena United Samaritans Medical Center, Sager campus.

It could be ready for occupancy in 2010.

And now under construction by Lutheran Social Services of Illinois is Deer Creek Manor, 3916 N. Vermilion St., just north of the BP gas station.

It is expected to begin occupancy in fall 2009.

Single-digit temperatures and the cold wind halted construction work last week, but a wood frame is taking shape for the 25-unit complex.

Susan DeMoss, who is property manager at Immanuel Senior Residences in Holiday Hills and will be property manager of the new site as well, said she’s excited for the new building to open.

Immanuel Senior Residences opened in 1999. It has 49 one-bedroom units.

Lutheran Social Services in 2005 received approval from the city’s zoning commission and city council for the new building.

City officials approved rezoning 3 acres, previously owned by James Darby, between 3910 and 3940 N. Vermilion St. from A-2 development reserve to R-4 multifamily residential, with the contingency that if the project falls through, the property will be rezoned back to A-2.

It took time for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to release funding to the religious-based, nonprofit agency.

Lutheran Social Services did its own market research, while HUD confirmed the need, said Lisa Ingalls, associate executive director of Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.

Ingalls said the project is funded through HUD and the Federal Home Loan Bank grant program.

Residents at the facility will be 62 or older and meet HUD income requirements, which is an annual income of no more than $18,250 for one person or $20,900 for two people.
