The Sheridan is a four-story luxury senior lifestyle community in Park Ridge, Illinois, at Northwest Highway and Greenwood Ave., specializing in assisted living and memory care. It was built upon a former Oldsmobile dealership only a few blocks from our headquarters. It’s a welcome improvement to the property that has sat vacant since the dealership was razed in 2009. Terra Consulting Group was the lead Project Engineer for the Chicago-based real estate firm Kaufman Jacobs.
The redeveloped site features a 1.4 ac-ft. pipe detention system designed with the ability to infiltrate stormwater into the subsoils. Best management practices included permeable paver parking areas and a “memory garden,” a green roof courtyard for residents and visiting family to enjoy, just steps away from their rooms. Much of the site parking is at ground level below the upper floors of the Senior Lifestyle Facility. The project also includes intersection improvements where Busse Hwy. & Greenwood Ave. meet Metra’s busy Northwest Commuter rail line.
Terra Consulting Group was proud to play a part in growing our local community, both in structures and people.
