An Innovative Living Community

Fox Valley Developers is building a new, community-centric adaptative reuse that rebuilds, reconnects and reinvigorates an entire neighborhood.

The new community preserves the campus’ rich history, while bringing in-demand and needed housing and services to the heart of Aurora’s Bardwell neighborhood. The campus is within walking distance of Aurora’s growing, riverfront downtown business district.

This innovative living community will inspire residents to live their best life in a community and region they love.

About Aurora IL

The Development Team

Fox Valley Developers is an Aurora-Centric group of business leaders who have come together with the shared purpose of preserving, restoring and repurposing the historic campus to transform and renew the Bardwell neighborhood.

The partners in the group are three sets of brothers who all share deep connections to Aurora and have achieved professional success in their respective fields.

After watching the Bardwell Copley campus decay over the past several decades, these life-long friends decided to do something about it and offer the City of Aurora a new path that would deliver immediate results for the community.

Together, they have amassed a team of complementary advisors that have made redevelopment of the campus a reality.
