Woodridge Horizon Senior Living Community celebrated its grand opening with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony last week. The community offers 93 apartments with affordable rents designed exclusively for older adults age 62 and older in Chicago’s western suburbs.

“Woodridge Horizon is a beautiful, important and special addition to Woodridge,” said Mayor Cunningham-Picek, who put together welcome gifts for the residents on behalf of the Village. “Now seniors can remain in Woodridge. This truly is a dream come true for the community.”

With a choice of one and two-bedroom apartments, Woodridge Horizon encourages residents to maintain their independence. Designed to reflect the comfortable surroundings of home, Woodridge Horizon provides an array of features and amenities, including a theater room, library with fireplace, game room with billiards table and TV, outdoor patio and grill, daily recreational activities and more. There also is an on-site property manager and live-in maintenance manager always available.

“From the beginning of this project, I have been happy to lend my support,” said U.S. Representative Bill Foster, 11th Congressional District. “Making sure our seniors have access to affordable housing is so important to our community. Woodridge Horizon shows how much we value the seniors in our community.”

Woodridge Horizon, which is housed on three and a half acres, is one of several projects to reinvest along the Janes Avenue corridor.

“Watching this come to fruition was like a dream come true,” said Gene Leonas, Woodridge Horizon resident. “When I walked through the doors and saw how beautiful it is, I was so happy to have found my new home.”
