Skender Construction has completed construction of North Shore Place, a new 156-unit assisted living and memory care community for seniors in Northbrook, IL. The new five-story community is located at 1000 Sunset Ridge Road and consists of luxury retirement apartments as well as state-of-the-art memory care accommodations. Senior Lifestyle Corporation is the owner and operator.

Construction of North Shore Place, a cast-in-place structure set on 7.2 acres, began in February 2013. SAS Architects and Planners was the project architect. The design and construction team utilized Lean Project Delivery methods and Building Information Modeling (BIM) to maximize collaboration and increase quality and speed of delivery. The community  was open for occupancy in August 2014.

The completed community features large, private one- and two-bedroom apartments with high-end finishes. The second floor is devoted to memory care services, with 24/7 nursing staff and secure spaces that allow residents with Alzheimer's or other forms of age-related dementia to thrive. The community also includes a variety of  amenities, including a salon and spa, café, formal dining areas, fitness center and recreation rooms.
