Update July 9, 2014


On June 26th we received an update from Carefree Development. Below is the summary of that update.

Earlier this year Carefree Development was in a strong position to secure funding through the Illinois Housing Development Association for a 56 unit senior housing project.  However, in early January 2014, the State of Illinois and the City made funding changes with priorities shifting from senior to multifamily housing.  The result is that Carefree’s only option for the redevelopment of the Saint Boniface property is multifamily for rent or for sale housing. 

Carefree has been working with several firms interested in the development of for sale condominiums/townhomes. They have appealed to the City for a meeting to discuss this option.  In the event Carefree is not successful in their pursuit of the for sale option, they will have to proceed with either the demolition of the church and/or the development of multifamily rental housing.  Preliminary plans are now in the works.
