The former Copley Hospital in Aurora will soon give way to a $129 million development led by Fox Valley Developers.

The Aurora City Council unanimously approved the development, which will include a mix of senior housing, apartments, educational facilities and neighborhood health care and parks, according to the Aurora Beacon. The city will put up as much as $15 million in incentives, one of the biggest investments on the East Side “in generations, maybe the largest ever,” according to Mayor Richard Irvin.

Fox Valley has already completed the first phase of the project, a $12 million remediation of asbestos and lead.

In all, the campus spans 341,000 square feet across seven buildings and nine acres. Fox Valley says it will build 102 units of senior housing, 53 supportive housing units, a pharmacy, a neighborhood health care facility, a surgery center, a new park, and school facilities.

The development team is comprised of local developers and contractors, including Konrad Construction president Jason Konrad.

Copley Hospital operated on the campus until it left for another campus on Ogden Avenue in 1994. Over the years several owners came with development plans, but the buildings remained vacant. [Aurora Beacon] — James Kleimann
