The Opus Group® Announces Contract and Start of Construction on Assisted Living Project for Pathway to Living


​The Opus Group (Opus) today announced a contract and start of construction on an assisted living project, Aspired Living of La Grange, located approximately 17 miles west of downtown Chicago. The five-story building will include 117 units and provide a continuum of housing and services choices such as memory care and assisted living apartments.

“We are pleased to be working with Pathway to Living in bringing this housing option to the La Grange community," said Jim Caesar, regional vice president, Opus Design Build, L.L.C. “Our collaborative design-build approach provides a customized solution for clients, and we're committed to creating a space that serves Pathway's long-term vision."

“Our team is excited to work alongside Opus and provide a unique intersection of residential, healthcare and hospitality to the area," said Matt Krummick, director of development, Pathway to Living.

Designed to meet the needs of Pathway to Living now and into the future, the community will feature a therapy and fitness center, salon and spa, casual dining in the bistro and more formal dining in the restaurant, movie theatre, large exterior courtyard and a dedicated interior courtyard for memory care residents.

The project with Pathway to Living is Opus' second in La Grange, having recently completed Uptown La Grange, a nearby transit-oriented development, located just minutes away from the Metra Station. 

Using its unique design-build approach known as Opus DB3, Opus has worked on 54 Client Direct Services construction projects for clients throughout the country in the past 24 months including remodels, tenant improvements and new construction projects across sectors.
