Developer Proposes New Senior Living Facility for Wheaton

Wheaton's zoning board begins public hearing process for proposed assisted living facility in north Wheaton.

Wheaton's zoning board on Tuesday night continued a public hearing for the consideration of the development of a senior living facility at 219 Parkway Drive in Wheaton, TribLocal reported Wednesday.

Chicago-based developer Supportive Living Services, LLC submitted an application for permitting for a planned unit development, to allow the developer to begin construction of the proposed four-story building that would house approximately 80 units.

The target population for private assisted living facility would be seniors around 85, according to a memo from city staff. City staff recommended approval of the plans for the development.

According to TribLocal, a resident had concerns the four-story bilding would tower over its neighboring structures, which are mostly two-story homes.

The planning board will revisit the proposal at its March 27 meeting.

Is this the kind of thing/view that would bug you every morning? I'm not sure it would for me personally—but I'm also still used to apartments.

I believe there is an old church there with most of the land is in a floodplain and is not usable. The highest and best use for that property would not be single family homes so this project could work. In this community I can see this being a good thing for seniors who want to downsize but still live in town near a residential area.

This sounds great. It is just what the community and seniors need.

Hopefully there will be "in unit" laundry facilities. I am just sorry the Downtown plans "fell" though!
