New Deerifiled Building's Ground Breaking Ceremony 2019

The new 240-unit building is on 5-plus acres, adjacent to CJE’s Weinberg Community for Senior Living which has been recognized for 20 years as a premier destination for assisted living and memory care. CJE SeniorLife, a JUF affiliate, will be responsible for managing and operating this new rental, residential building. The building, as yet unnamed, is located on Lake Cook Road in Deerfield. First move-ins are anticipated to begin in June 2020.

In addition to CJE, Banner Senior, LLC, is the managing partner and developer of the joint venture, with construction by Lendlease and financing by Harrison Street and Wells Fargo. The six-story building, which includes five floors of upscale apartments was designed by architectural firm Norr.
The new building will offer an expansive amenity package that includes 24-hour concierge service, housekeeping, indoor pool and day spa, yoga and fitness studio, a meal plan with three options of dining venues, outside terraces, library/business center, art studio, theatre, and life enrichment classrooms. Plenty of covered and surface parking will be available as well as valet service.   

“CJE is extremely excited to have an opportunity to manage this independent living community on the North Shore and add it to our portfolio of residential options for active adults,” said CJE President and CEO Dan Fagin. “Located across from the highly–recognized and well-established Weinberg Community, this building will help CJE fulfill its mission to enhance the lives of even more older adults by adding breadth to our continuum of care. We are responding to a need for an upscale rental option for older adults in the Jewish and the larger community who have decided to downsize and let someone else do the cooking, housekeeping, and yard work!”

The building is conveniently located on Lake Cook Road in Deerfield, Illinois (directly north of Weinberg Community at 1551 Lake Cook Rd.) near shopping centers, several hospitals, the entrance of Interstate 294 and O’Hare International Airport. The Sales Office will open in the Arbor Lakes Corporate Park by early fall. Until then, community members who are interested in adding their names to a growing list of people who want to receive more information (when available) should call:
