New Construction – Affordable Supportive Housing
Bradley Crossing Phase II is a 54-unit multigenerational, supportive residential housing community owned and operated by Jewish Family Services and professionally managed by Oakbrook Corporation. Residents of the facility will include clients of JFS and other organizations who serve clients with physical and intellectual disabilities (I/DD) from age 18 and older.
Phase II offers a different style of living environment with “rowhome” style buildings (four units to 20 units per building), individual unit entries and private garages. Each building includes common area amenities such as business centers and small community spaces for group activities. The second phase also takes advantage of the community-based amenities and support infrastructure originally constructed in Phase I. The use of traditional building materials, general building placement, parking and pedestrian facilities, along with a free-standing community center reinforces the Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) design intended for the Bradley Village neighborhood.
The facility is following the national trend in housing for people with disabilities. which is shifting away from large institutional settings and community-based group homes to individualized support delivered to clients living at home in “mixed” living environments. The primary goal of the facility and organization is to successfully integrate persons with physical and intellectual disabilities with the ability to live independently within residential environments.
