“Even after the former hospital sat vacant for five years, the people of Aurora never lost sight of its potential, presenting us with an opportunity to work alongside city and state officials to preserve a local landmark while creating much-needed housing for area seniors,” said David Block, director of development for Evergreen Real Estate Group, which will also manage the community.

“Through thoughtful renovations, we were able to restore this extraordinary building and transform it into a vibrant residential community with all of the amenities and services today’s seniors desire in a home.”

Located at 400 E. New York St., Aurora St. Charles Senior Living offers a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom floorplans, all with spacious living/dining areas and open kitchens. The community’s renovated interiors showcase a number of original design features, including terrazzo and stone floors in common areas, oversized windows in each residence and 9-foot ceilings throughout the building. 

When complete, the property will also feature several shared amenity spaces, including a large community room in the hospital’s former chapel that will house a library/reading room and separate computer area. Outside, walking paths and community gardens will provide additional opportunities for exercise and socialization.
