Hanover Park: Verandah Retirement Community celebrated the Grand Opening of the Verandah Clubhouse on July 14th 2019 & announced they will be open for occupancy on September 15th. Verandah is the first multicultural community in the Midwest designed to celebrate both Indian & American lifestyles. The project 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. The senior living development will include townhomes & condominiums for sale with a clubhouse & medical services for use of the residents. “We wanted to have a fully operational clubhouse before the first resident moved in as the clubhouse is such an important part of our community” says Dr Anuja Gupta, the managing partner of the development. “We are also excited to announce that the first set of residents will be moving in starting September 15” she added.
Verandah is a unique retirement destination community designed to celebrate both Indian & 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 senior community. The senior living development is classified as a Continuum of Care Retirement Community (CCRC) with emphasis on providing a continuum of care which allows for residents to be as active as possible but still have access to specialized services and facilities as health needs changed without having to leave the community.
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 mins away and downtown Chicago is about 45 mins away. The area also has two excellent medical centers. The Schaumburg area was selected as it is widely recognized for its diversity and access to extensive retail, shopping & dining avenues. 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 & condominiums for sale with a huge Clubhouse and medical facilities for use of the residents. The homes range in size from 1450-2000 square feet for the townhomes and 620-1200 square feet for the condominiums. The townhomes and condominiums are especially built for senior living and offer a convenient, low maintenance lifestyle. The housing will be offered at $200,000-$475,000 to accommodate various budgets & lifestyles. The base-price includes upscale finishes & all appliances. A variety of upgrades will be offered. The housing is especially built for senior living with all-ranch and first-floor master bedroom options. All exterior maintenance will be taken care off by the homeowners association fees in the range of $350-475 per month.
The Clubhouse will be the main attraction feature 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 & Indian cuisine using fresh local ingredients for lunch & 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 launch on July 14th was for the temporary clubhouse which will remain operational till the final clubhouse is completed in approximately 2 years. The temporary clubhouse has the significant features of the final clubhouse on a smaller scale including dining, fitness & wellness.
Many featurs of the property are custom made to cater to the taste & preferences of South-Asians. The Clubhouse décor is designed in a theme inspired by the vibrant colors of Rajasthan. The furniture, artwork and fixtures have been selected to reflect the theme of Royal Rajasthan. The rooms include space for activities like yoga and meditation in addition to other activities. The dining room will serve vegetarian Indian and multicultural cuisine. “Rajasthan is a favorite tourist destination for many people. The bright colors and bold accents bring back memories of a warm & inviting experience that has a special spot in the heart for many’ said Gupta. The temporary clubhouse includes a community room, activities room, gym, dining room, outdoor patio & yard. “Loneliness if the biggest problem for many seniors. The Clubhouse is designed to include many avenues for residents to socialize and make new friends” added Gupta.
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 & 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 Dr Anuja Gupta, founder & CEO.
Construction started in March 2018 and will progress phases with townhomes planned to be built in 2019, condominiums in 2020 and medical facilities in 2021. The plans include the construction of 55 townhomes, 75 condominiums and 80-unit medical building. The property celebrated its grand opening in Oct 2018 with completion of its model-home building. The Grand Opening on July 14th involved ‘unveiling’ of the Verandah Clubhouse. In addition to the Clubhouse currently there are 2 townhome buildings with a total of 9 units under construction projected for completion in September. 5 of the 9 units have been pre-sold and those residents will be moving in starting September 15th.
