Construction underway at senior community in Elmhurst

Real estate public relations flacks repeatedly fall back on a few favorite words rather than stretch for more accurate descriptions. Homes are nestled somewhere, retail areas are often burgeoning and nearly everything that can be imagined is abounding.

At Park Place of Elmhurst, a senior community, the Web site promises, "new opportunities to enjoy an active and engaging lifestyle will abound." Since Park Place is nestled in burgeoning Elmhurst, we don't doubt the abounding.

On a more serious note, Park Place apparently has quite a bit to offer, starting with a stable group of sponsors and Perkins + Will architecture. And it's heartening to see, as the Tribune recently reported, that the real estate downturn isn't halting the progress of a number of senior communities.
