Plan for senior housing in Elgin moving forward

Plans for a senior apartment complex at 300 N. State St., just outside downtown Elgin, are moving forward after the city council first approved them two years ago. The city council approved Wednesday night amendments to the plan for Fox River Crossing, a four-story, 60-unit building at 300 N. State Street, on the northwest corner with Lawrence Avenue. The amendments are about resident age restrictions, street setback and lot coverage, but the general building plan remains the same, Community Development Director Marc Mylott said. The developer has applied for building permits and construction could start in late summer or early fall, city officials said.
