Harbor Retirement Associates wants to build a 96,000-square-foot assisted living and memory care facility in Glen Ellyn for seniors who need a little extra help.

The company wants to build the HarborChase facility at 2S678 Park Blvd. on property owned by the Church of God.

Staci Hulseberg, Glen Ellyn's director of planning and development, said the developer already has met with the village's plan and architectural review commissions but still needs to file a development application.

James Richards, the owner's representative and construction manager for Harbor Retirement Associates, said they want to open Nov. 1, 2015.

The proposed two-story facility would have both assisted living and memory care units, and include features such as courtyards, a theater and restaurants, Richards said. Rooms for exercise and computer use also will be available.

Hulseberg said the property is adjacent Glenbard South High School and is in an unincorporated area near Glen Ellyn. The Church of God has had the property up for sale for many years, she said.

There is an annexation agreement for the property, Hulseberg said.

"This allows them (residents) to not have to leave the village of Glen Ellyn that they're familiar with and that they call home," Hulseberg said.

The project eventually will need village board approval.
