New Moms Supportive Housing Project Completed

Jeffrey A. Raday, PE, President of McShane Construction Company, is proud to announce the completion of its newest nonprofit supportive housing project. New Moms, with an existing location in Chicago, added a new facility in Oak Park, Illinois. A ribbon cutting ceremony and open house was held on Friday, March 15th to celebrate the opening of the brand new facility. Located at 206 Chicago Avenue, in-between Ridgeland and Austin Avenue, the new facility offers comprehensive support services to young moms and their children experiencing poverty and homelessness. New Moms interrupts the cycle of generational poverty and creates strong families by providing stable housing, job training and family support.

The four-story, 21,700-square-foot building includes 18 apartment units comprised of one- and two- bedroom options to accommodate various sized families with private entrances for residents. In addition to the units, the first floor includes new office space for New Moms employees, a playroom which hosts childcare during parent programming, and a community room where parenting education and workshops take place.

“This supportive housing project has been both exciting and unique,” remarked David Rintz, McShane Vice President. “We were fortunate to work with an awesome team to provide young mothers a safe and stable environment to live in.”

McShane Breaks Ground on New Senior Housing Facility

As the baby boomer generation continues to age, the need for additional senior housing also grows. McShane Construction Company was recently contracted by Avenida Partners LLC to create an active living apartment community for seniors in Naperville, Illinois. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Wednesday, September 26th 2018 where Bob May, the managing partner of Avenida, spoke along with the mayor of Naperville, Steve Chirico.

Bob and Steve both mentioned the importance of listening to Naperville residents and providing them with a new and diverse housing community for those over the age of 62. Their goal is to provide housing for Naperville residents who want to live in an active senior living community. Mayor Chirico stated, “I am thankful for the investors who believed in this facility and helped bring it to the city of Naperville. I look forward to when the project is finished and the community is full of happy and healthy senior residents.”

The 203,000-square-foot Avenida Naperville project will consist of the construction of two- and three-story buildings. They will include a brick and stone veneer with Hardie lap and panel siding. There will be vinyl windows and patio doors. The kitchens and bathrooms will contain quartz countertops. The amenities will focus heavily on healthy living. A swimming pool, clubhouse area and exterior courtyard will be available for all residents to enjoy.

Each unit will feature Whirlpool appliances, a tile backsplash and quartz countertops in the kitchen along with luxury vinyl tile flooring and carpeting.

Residents will be able to enjoy extensive amenities that will give Vue at the Quarter a resort-style feel. Amenities include a clubhouse, an outdoor pool, a grilling area, a workout facility and pet play yards.

The complex will be built with wood frame construction with a brick and Hardie siding exterior that will provide Vue at the Quarter with a fresh and modern appeal.

“Atlanta’s Upper Westside is a growing market with lots of new opportunities,” remarked Hoppa. “As Atlanta’s projected growth continues to increase, more and more people will be looking for housing solutions like Vue at the Quarter. We are confident that we can deliver a great building and make this project a success for our client.”

Construction on the project began in early May and is slated for completion in November 2019.
