A full service living facility for homeless veterans is planned for Cicero, Illinois by Pathways America. With the help of General Contractor Rosewood Commercial and owner Mark Dunnett, the goal is for this six-story full service living facility to open in 2013 with the local name of Pathways Cicero.

As the building has been vacant for nearly ten years, there is a great need for a complete overhaul and renovation. For initial marketing and fund raising purposes, Pathways contracted Rosewood Commercial to transform the lobby and the majority of first floor into a warm and welcoming space to host Pathway’s first open house. Rosewood completed extensive demolition of existing conditions and new installations including extensive drywall, decorating, suspended and drywall ceilings, kitchen conditions, and a working (temporary) lighting and distribution service. These new conditions were praised by Pathways and others who saw the previous conditions of the building.

Phase two represents a full design and build of the entire six-story 60,000SF facility. This includes 100+ guest rooms with kitchenettes and bathrooms, a spacious mix of meeting, living and special service areas, full service kitchen with large dining room, fitness and meditation rooms, resource center for life skills seminars and job training, and a lower level parking garage. The building will also feature a terrace on the second level complete with tables, chairs and beautiful landscaping.

Mark Dunnett and Rosewood Commercial share with the owners of Pathways America the passion to help those who have served our country. In creating this new facility, Rosewood Commercial will complement installation tasks with the assistance of capable and skilled veterans in a variety of required construction projects.

Pathways America recognizes veterans need more than just a clean bed and a hot meal. They need hope and they deserve compassion. They desire the same opportunities and quality of life to which we all aspire. Rosewood Commercial’s hard work, dedication and commitment to this philanthropy will be utilized as Pathways America endeavors to open several more veteran facilities around the country.
