The first independent living residents have moved into The Admiral at the Lake, a new CCRC located in Chicago. The former Admiral at the Lake was razed in 2007 to make way for this new and modern version. The first residents of the new Admiral were also residents of the former Admiral.
Reaching 31 stories at its highest point, The Admiral includes 200 independent living apartments, 39 assisted living apartments, 17 memory support apartments and 36 skilled nursing beds.
Founded in 1858, The Admiral at the Lake is affiliated with The Kendal Corporation. Greystone has served as development consultant on this project. See images of The Admiral in the gallery below. Click here to learn more about this new Lifecare community.
