With the growing increase in senior citizen populations, the Village of Alsip realized a need for safe and affordable senior citizen housing for those 55 and older. The need became a reality when in 1988, the Village purchased the Ridgeway apartment complex, and turned it into the Alsip Heritage I Apartments. All the units were in great need of repair at the time of their purchase, so the Village remodeled all 168 apartments. The complex was also equipped with an in-ground swimming pool and clubhouse for various senior citizen activities.After the great success of this complex, in 1991, the Village decided to purchase a second complex; the Colonial Place Apartments. This complex consisted of 344 units, which were also in poor condition. The Village has completed all the remodeling at what is now, the Heritage II complex. As with the first complex, a large clubhouse facility was built, and an existing in-ground pool was completely rehabilitated.

This brings the total Heritage complexes to 512 units, with units available. The purchase of these complexes also provided much needed employment to numerous members of the construction trades who remodeled the units. The purchase of these apartment complexes also were conducted without any additional costs to Alsip taxpayers, while at the same time, the rehabilitation projects upgraded two large complexes that were in vast need of repair.
