Thorn Creek Senior Living

New construction five-story, 46-unit senior housing facility in Thornton, IL. The site is stepped toward an existing creek in a flood plain with a 16 foot elevation change, requiring retaining walls and flood protection barriers at grade. A four story wood framed structure was designed over a one-story concrete podium. Parking is provided underneath the podium at grade, and the wood framed levels above encompass the residential and amenity areas.
