Senior Lifestyle Corp. and Kaufman Jacobs have started construction on The Sheridan at Oak Brook, a 200-unit luxury senior living community in Oak Brook, Ill., the first of its kind in this Chicago suburb. The $77 million development, designed by Lamar Johnson Collaborative, is slated for completion in early 2021.

The 215,000-square-foot, five-story retirement community will feature 127 independent living units, 59 assisted living units and 14 memory care units ranging from studios to two-bedroom floorplans. Amenities are to include physical therapy and fitness facilities, a bar and bistro, an on-site theater, game rooms and a memory garden.

The Sheridan at Oak Brook will sit on 4.5 acres at 2100 York Road, right next to Clearwater shopping center. Elmhurst Hospital is 1.7 miles north and various dining options are within a 2-mile radius of the property. Downtown Chicago is 17 miles east, accessible via Interstate 290.

This will be the fourth The Sheridan-branded property of the joint venture and the second in Senior Lifestyle’s Signature Collection in Illinois. The first Signature property, initially completed in 2014 some 26 miles north of The Sheridan at Oak Brook, received a new memory care building in June.
