CHICAGO: A forty million dollar project – one of the biggest of its type –
for the community , of the community and in a way by the community – Verandah Retirement Community, is gearing up for a grand opening soon.
The project in essence is a planned unit development (PUD) with residential senior housing and a commercial lot fronting Irving Park Road on a 12-acre property located in Schaumburg township. Excitement for this project has been building since 2016 when the project got first started.
Verandah received the final approvals from the Village of Hanover Park in October 2017. Besides the unanimous approval from the board , it got a Tax-Increment Financing (TIF) grant from the City of Hanover Park for bringing high level of economic development to the area. Construction started in March 2018 and is planned to progress in phases over the next 2 years.

Verandah is a unique retirement destination community designed to celebrate both Indian and American lifestyles thru a fusion of cuisine, activities, entertainment, traditions and cultures. Verandah offers an equal housing opportunity for seniors from all backgrounds who wish to take advantage of this ‘east meets west’ philosophy. Verandah has many features, amenities and facilities which were thoughtfully designed to offer a convenient, worry-free lifestyle to the 55 years plus seniors community. The emphasis is on providing a continuum of care which allowed residents to be as active as possible but still having access to specialized services and facilities as health needs without having to leave the community.

The Veranda blueprint

Verandah is located in Schaumburg township’s Hanover Park village. The location is central and close to new Elgin-Ohare expressway. Chicago’s Ohare airport is about 30 minutes away and downtown Chicago is about 45 minutes away. The area also has two excellent medical centers. In addition, Schaumburg is close to other attractions important to the Indian community including various religious organizations, ethnic grocery stores and restaurants.
Verandah will offer townhomes and condominiums for sale with a huge clubhouse and medical facilities for use of the residents. The town homes and condominiums are especially built for senior living and offer a convenient, low maintenance lifestyle. The housing will be offered at a range of price-points to accommodate various budgets and lifestyles.

The Clubhouse will be the main attraction of the community. It is planned as a 20,000 square feet facility with a vegetarian dining room, community room, gym, computer room, library, beauty shop, theater. The dining facility will serve chef-made multicultural and Indian cuisine using fresh local ingredients for lunch and dinner daily. The Clubhouse will offer a full calendar of activities and entertainment options to provide many avenues for social interactions. The property will also offer extensive landscaped areas including a big pond, park, walking paths.
The medical services will include a doctor’s office, physical therapy office, home-health service and an Assisted Living & Memory Care facility. “Our emphasis is on socialization of the seniors. Loneliness is a big problem in the senior community. At Verandah we designed many amenities and facilities to bring the seniors out of their homes and be involved in group activities, make new friends and enjoy their life some more” said Anuja Gupta, founder & CEO.
Construction started in March 2018 and will progress phases with townhomes planned to be built in 2018, condominiums in 2019 and medical facilities in 2020. Further information can be obtained at Verandah can be reached at 312 952 1802
