CHICAGO: It was a dream come true for many a seniors in Chicagoland when one of the biggest community projects, Verandah Retirement Community, threw open its doors for reservations on Sunday July 22 with a grand launch celebration and bookings.
Verandah is a unique retirement destination community designed to celebrate both Indian and American lifestyles thru a fusion of cuisine, activities, entertainment, traditions and cultures. Verandah offers an equal housing opportunity for seniors from all backgrounds who wish to take advantage of this ‘East meets West’ philosophy. It is a master-planned development on a 12-acre property located in Schaumburg township’s Village of Hanover Park.
This multi-million dollar community project has many features, amenities and facilities which were thoughtfully designed to offer an active, convenient and zero-maintenance lifestyle to the 55 years plus senior members of the community. The property offers independent senior housing as well as assisted living and memory care facilities.

The project started with the entitlement process in summer 2016 and received final approvals from the Village of Hanover Park, in October 2017. The developers received unanimous approval from the board in addition to a Tax-Increment Financing (TIF) grant from the city of Hanover Park for bringing a high level of economic development to the area. Construction started in March 2018 and is planned to progress in phases over the next 2 years.
Verandah offers a unique-Age-in-Place concept which allows residents to avail an increasing level of healthcare services without leaving the community. Verandah will offer townhomes and condominiums for sale with a huge clubhouse and medical facilities for use of the residents. The townhomes and condominiums are especially built for senior living and offer a convenient, low maintenance lifestyle.
The housing is offered at a range of price-points to accommodate various budgets and lifestyles. The medical services will include a doctor’s office, physical therapy office, home-health service and an Assisted Living & Memory Care facility. The availability of medical services in the comfort of your own home and community allows the residents to remain in the own homes longer.

Verandah is located in Schaumburg township’s Hanover Park village. The location is central and close to new Elgin-Ohare expressway. Chicago’s Ohare airport is about 30 minutes away and downtown Chicago is about 45 minutes away. The area also has two excellent medical centers, Alexian Brothers hospital & St. Alexius Urgent Care. The Schaumburg area was selected as it is widely recognized for its diversity and access to extensive retail, shopping and dining avenues. In addition, Schaumburg is close to other attractions important to the Indian community including various religious organizations, ethnic grocery stores and restaurants.
The Clubhouse will be the main attraction for the community. It is planned as a 15,000 square feet facility with a vegetarian dining room, community room, gym, computer room, library, beauty shop, theater. The dining facility will serve chef-made multicultural and Indian cuisine using fresh local ingredients for lunch and dinner daily. The Clubhouse will offer a full calendar of activities and entertainment options to provide many avenues for social interactions. The property will also offer extensive landscaped areas including a big pond, park, walking paths.

“Our emphasis is on socialization of the seniors. Loneliness is a big problem in the senior community. At Verandah we designed many amenities and facilities to bring the seniors out of their homes and be involved in group activities, make new friends and enjoy their life some more. We selected the name Verandah as it represents the central courtyard of traditional Indian homes which would be the social hub of the house where the family would gather to share their day and enjoy each-others company,” says Dr Anuja Gupta, the general partner of Verandah LLC.
The Launch was a very well attended event by community members, dignitaries and the media. The mayor of Hanover Park, Rodney Craig was the Guest of Honor. In a well received address, he observed “Verandah will put the city of Hanover Park on the map more prominently and the Schaumburg Township will have a great positive impact with lots of new economic development with this project”.
Nimish Jani, Schaumburg Township Trustee was one of the invited guests. “A project like Verandah has the potential to change a neighborhood, an area and even the whole township for the better” he said. “The property used to be a vacant lot for many years and now we will have a beautiful new development which will serve as a grand entry-way to the Village of Hanover Park.”
