Huntley could become a hub for senior living options

Huntley might soon become the unofficial retirement capital of the Northwest suburbs. Already home to the largest 55 and older active adult living community in the Midwest — Del Webb’s Sun City — the village is being eyed by another resort-style senior living developer. Lincoln, Nebraska-based Resort Lifestyle Communities is proposing a $30 million, 130-unit independent senior living community on roughly 9.6 acres along Powers Road east of Route 47. The group owns and operates 12 all-inclusive, resort-style communities for adults 55 and older and is developing 26 additional facilities nationwide. With resorts in 23 states, Huntley would be the group’s first venture in Illinois, though company officials also are considering property in Naperville. Amenities at these communities include 24/7 concierge service, housekeepers, gourmet chefs, valet parking attendants and lifestyle directors. Huntley Assistant Village Manager Lisa Armour said the group found Huntley attractive because of the proximity to Sun City.
