Addition Planned for Low-Income Senior Housing Complex

Naperville may soon see more low-income senior housing.

At the last Planning and Zoning meeting, the commission approved a proposal for a five-story, 68-unit addition to Martin Avenue Apartments.

The over 40-year-old complex was constructed when Naperville had just 22,000 residents. Today, there’s almost seven times that, meaning the demand for senior living space has increased. The current waiting list for a one-bedroom apartment at the existing complex is at least two years long.

The complex is operated by Naperville Elderly Homes, a nonprofit organization that focuses on serving low-income seniors, meaning that rent on the new units, just like the rest of Martin Avenue Apartments, will be subsidized.

The project is expected to cost about $16 million.

The proposal now heads to the Building Review Board for approval.
