RICHMOND, Ill., Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A previously vacant lot is on its way to being home to a new 22,000 square foot affordable senior living apartment complex.

Novak Construction was represented by Vice President, Greg Terwilliger, who acknowledged all of the constituencies that made this project possible – Full Circle, IHDA and the Village of Richmond.

Construction is well underway to deliver this exciting new development that will serve low income seniors in need of secure housing. It is situated adjacent to a walking trail and will feature services focused on health and wellness for seniors 55 and older. The building will have 25 accessible units with 4 two-bedroom and 21 one-bedroom units, a computer lab, a library, community room and an on-site property management office.
