McShane Construction Completes 150-Unit Eden Supportive Living Complex in Champaign, Illinois

January 8, 2014

Jeffrey A. Raday, P.E., President of McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm has completed the comprehensive renovation and new construction services for Eden Supportive Living, a 150-unit supportive living development in Champaign, Illinois.

Developed by owner/operator, Mitch Hamblet, President and Founder of Eden Supportive Living, the eight-story residential complex is located at 222 North State Street and offers integrated supportive housing and services to persons with disabilities between the ages of 22 and 64 years. Providing a bridge between supervised care and independent living environments, supportive living communities accommodate residents who are able to live independently but who benefit from readily available access to a wide range of support services and resources, if needed.

McShane Construction utilized the existing structure and frame of the property, formerly a five-story building, as the base structure for the eight-story residence. The assignment included the new construction of three additional floors that were added to the existing five-story facility. In addition, McShane completed the new construction of a 40,000 square foot, eight-story tower that was adjoined to the existing building on the north end of the property.

The completed multi-family residential redevelopment incorporates 117,000 square feet of living and amenities space to support 150 residents within the studio and one-bedroom units. McShane Construction also completed a contemporary, two-story glass atrium and an outdoor reflection pool with an eight-story water feature cascade. Residents of Eden Supportive Living can enjoy spacious, modern apartments, multiple community lounges, a full-service training kitchen, dining facilities, library, theatre, cyber café, activity center, medical suite and laundry facilities. Housing, nursing support, wellness programs, daily meals and 24-hour emergency support are also available.

“McShane Construction is proud to deliver this premium supportive living facility to our client, Mitch Hamblet, developer/owner of Eden Supportive Living, and to the individuals that his organization serves,” remarks Raday. “Our firm’s extensive multi-family renovation and new construction experience was a critical component in providing a suitable living option to those who will benefit from a supportive living environment.”
