Senior Apartments In Aurora Set For Grand Opening

The grand opening for the Aurora St. Charles Senior Living apartments is set for 11 a.m. to noon, Jan. 31. At that point, officials from Evergreen Real Estate Group and the city will hold a ribbon-cutting for the $24 million project that remodeled 60 apartments for low-income senior citizens into the former St. Charles Hospital building at 400 E. New York St. The project began in December 2015, and welcomed its first residents in December 2016. The ribbon-cutting will take place in the building’s community room, remodeled into what was the hospital’s chapel. Evergreen and city officials have decided to name the community room after former Mayor Tom Weisner, and will have a dedication doing so as part of the ribbon-cutting.
