Zion Woods

Location: Illinois

Type: New Construction
Use: Residential-rental, 25 units
Cost: $8.5 million
Status: Coming 2020

Zion Woods will be a beautiful, 25-unit development providing 12 units of workforce housing, 12 units designated for persons with disabilities, and a single unit to replace an existing single-family home. The development will feature two, 2-story buildings comprising a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units, and will be designed with varied massing and sloped roofs to blend with the surrounding single-family properties. Site amenities will include a management office, resident bike storage, on-site parking, a play lot, picnic area, walking trail, resident garden plots, and two basins planted with native grasses and flowers to maintain the natural character of the site and manage storm water. The balance of the 8-acre existing site, partially occupied by Zion Lutheran Church, is largely natural in character.
