Wrightwood Senior apartments is 3 Diamond’s first LIHTC development. The project is located in Chicago’s Wrightwood neighborhood. 3DD carefully selected this site and worked closely with the alderman and community to serve an area lacking quality affordable senior housing.
Wrightwood Senior Apartments was awarded LIHTCs from IHDA in 2008, closed on financing and began construction in August 2009, and finished two months ahead of schedule and reached 100% occupancy by December 2010. The building maintains 100% occupancy.
