Park Plaza Senior Living Facility


Northwest Home for the Aged



Date of Completion

2015, 2016, 2020, 2021

Helios renovated Park Plaza with a phased schedule to accommodate the occupied senior living facility. The interior renovations modernized the space, creating a brighter, more open living space for this senior living community. The building has three wings, six floors per wing, and around 180 units.

Helios first worked closely with Park Plaza in 2015 to replace the finishes at the existing corridors and resident bathrooms while minimizing disruptions to community residents. We were then invited back for subsequent phases, which included a complete renovation of the building’s lobby and atrium area (including new flooring, lighting, millwork, and glazing), followed by phased replacement of galvanized plumbing risers and mains throughout the building and the occupied units, and the replacement of all building windows.

This project was awarded the AIA Chicago’s Interior Architecture Award Honor Award for 2019.
