There was a celebration in northwest Chicago on Thursday, when city officials, community leaders, and the wonderful people of Norwood Park gathered to officially open Senior Suites of Norwood Park.



The new Senior Lifestyle community is housed in what was once a Passionist Monastery, which was originally built in 1910 and has been preserved and adapted to provide Norwood Park residents a truly unique and inspiring living experience.

Located at 5700 N. Harlem Ave., Senior Suites of Norwood Park is a 15-minute drive from O’Hare International Airport. Visitors often comment on how just stepping into the spacious building, with its high ceilings and arch windows, puts them at ease. The community features 84 beautiful apartment homes for residents.

The development of Senior Suites of Norwood Park was made possible by a public/private partnership that will allow residents to enjoy a very high quality of living at an affordable rate.
