New Moms Groundbreaking

Jeffrey A. Raday, PE, President of McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm was selected by New Moms for the construction of its new apartment complex.

The New Moms Oak Park Supportive Housing complex will be located at 206 Chicago Ave. in Oak Park, Illinois. The four-story, 18-unit building will be constructed on a 0.34-acre site. It will be comprised of one and two bedroom units to accommodate various sized families. Wood frame construction with a facade of masonry veneer will be used on the front of the building as well as glazed brick and fiber cement siding.

Additional interior features include office space for New Moms employees on the first floor and a playroom for children that incorporates different sized circular windows to create an open and playful feel. There will be a laundry area in the building as well as resident meeting space. Residents will have a private entrance separate from the office entrance.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Wednesday, April 11th where New Moms President & CEO Laura Zumdahl spoke about the organization and their history, as well as the bright future that is ahead of them. Laura stated, “In 2011 we had a groundbreaking ceremony for a brand-new New Moms facility. I never imagined we would be here today for another groundbreaking ceremony. I am so thankful to our board members and gracious donors who helped make today possible.”

David Rintz, McShane Vice President, states, “This is an exciting time to work with New Moms. We have established a great relationship with the owner’s rep, Lightengale Group, and enjoy seeing their projects from concept to completion. We are proud to be the general contractor for this project which will help so many families.”

The architectural services for this development will be provided by McBride Kelley Baurer Architects/Planners. For more information about New Moms Oak Park Supportive Housing, please visit
