CHICAGO - Capitol Seniors Housing, a leading senior living investment and development firm, has begun construction on Atria Highland Park, an assisted living and memory care community in Highland Park.

The $30 million, three-story, 72,000-square-foot community with 86 residential suites will be operated by Atria Senior Living. Atria Highland Park, at 1000 Central Ave., just west of the city's downtown, is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2020.

The facility will feature amenities designed to encourage socialization and engagement in activities, the company said in a news release. They will include public and private dining, bistro, living room, card room, library, high-tech theater, art studio, exercise room, and multipurpose room for games and activities. The memory care area, offering 22 residential suites, will include a salon.

The 1.8-acre parcel will feature spacious courtyards, other outdoor amenities, and a view overlooking the Sunset Valley Golf Course to the rear of the site, according to the news release. Capitol Seniors Housing also will create a pedestrian crossing extending into Sunset Woods Park as a public benefit, as well as extend the Deerfield Road sidewalk and improve the Central Avenue sidewalk with landscaping and seating.

In addition to Atria Highland Park, Capitol Seniors Housing owns the Arbor Terrace in Naperville and is constructing Atria Glenview, an 83-suite senior living community in Glenview.
