Along with Fox Valley Developers, Konrad Construction, and countless other partners, Kluber Architects + Engineers has worked diligently on the redesign of this once-abandoned property. Over the coming months, the rest of the Bloomhaven campus will open its doors and provide value to the community.
After several years in the making, Weston Bridges celebrated its ribbon cutting on Tuesday, September 13th. The facility, which is a residential center for adults with cognitive challenges, has officially moved into its space at the Old Copley Hospital building and is already improving the lives of others.
The nine-acre property sat abandoned for nearly three decades and was previously home to crime, blight, and unsafe conditions for local residents. The campus, now known as Bloomhaven, is a community resource that includes medical offices, a retirement and assisted living facility, a park, and more.
“We’re seeing medical services being added to an area where there haven’t been medical services for this community in a quarter of a century,” said Mayor Richard C. Irvin. “Folks that had written this neighborhood off are saying, ‘I want to be part of this community.’ We’re making a difference. Weston Bridges is making a difference.”
