Evergreen Launches Indiana Assisted Living Project

Chicago-based Evergreen Real Estate Group has secured financing and started preliminary site work for Green Oaks of Goshen, a four-story, 120-unit assisted living community for low-income seniors at 282 Johnston St. in Goshen, IN.  

Evergreen Construction Company, a division of Evergreen Real Estate Group, is serving as general contractor on the development and plans to officially break ground on Oct. 28. Green Oaks of Goshen is slated to be open for move-ins in early 2023. 

The $30-million project will replace a vacant three-acre lot on Goshen’s north side. Bourbonnais, IL-based Gardant Management Solutions will operate the community. 

“Green Oaks of Goshen aligns with the city’s goal of creating modern, affordable housing for area seniors, as well as our own mission of creating vibrant residential communities for every income level and stage of life,” said Steve Rappin, CEO of Evergreen Real Estate Group.
