History

The Phillips family has been building homes for Central Illinois residents since 1983 and have always looked for growth opportunities. When Coles County needed more student housing and hospitality venues, they built and renovated them. As the need for assisted living and memory care facilities presented itself, they did what they always do – seized an opportunity and provided a quality, successful product all over the state of Illinois and beyond.
