Rush Participated in the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of an 80-Unit Affordable Senior Housing Property in Orland Park


CHICAGO, IL – May 14, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, Congressman Bobby L. Rush participated in the Thomas Place Orland Park ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of a $22‐million, 80‐unit, affordable, senior and veteran’s housing community.

The groundbreaking ceremony for Thomas Place Orland Park took place in June 2012 and almost a year later the housing community celebrated the completion and opening of the first project to offer affordable housing units for seniors and veterans in Orland Park, Illinois. Thomas Place is located at 15415 South Harlem Avenue.

“Me and my wife moved here from Florida and it was beautiful there, but for this to be a seniors community; it’s just phenomenal the way things are set up and the way things are handled here,” said James Harris, resident of Thomas Place Orland Park. “In our eyesight, we couldn’t have asked for anything better.”

Thomas Place Orland Park is 100 percent leased, and residents are moving in as part of a phased

move‐in schedule. The 80‐unit community includes 72 affordable units and eight market rate apartments. As part of state funding requirements, 10 percent of the units must be set aside as State Referral Network (SRN) units to aid people in transition. Recently, Ryan Companies US, Inc extended the number of SRN units available from eight to 13.

Partners of the ribbon cutting were Ryan Companies US, Inc. and Providence Life Services.
