Hard sell for high-end senior living projects - Chicago Sun-Times
The Clare at Water Tower, a high-rise that opened in 2008 at 55 E. Pearson, filed for bankruptcy Monday. Its owner, the nonprofit Franciscan Sisters of Chicago Service Corp., defaulted on about $216 million in debt because only about a third of its 248 independent living condos are occupied. A spokeswoman said the sisters hope to keep control of the project. The bankruptcy filing said the sisters have secured about $12 million in financing for interim operations. Judy Amiano, president of the corporation, said “resident and health care services will continue uninterrupted” during the bankruptcy.
