On September 29, 2015, the ground breaking ceremony was held for Fairhaven Crossing,an affordable housing development in Lake County.

Two local organizations conceived the development with the intention of bringing affordable housing and housing for persons with disabilities to the Mundelein community. Lake County United, an organization of religious and non-profit institutions and the Mundelein based Lake County Center for Independent Living LCCIL) which provides services for persons living with disabilities, selected the site at 407 Hawley Street and chose the developers.

The site is being developed by VeriGreen Development and Lake County Residential Development Corporation (LCRDC). Verigreen's principal Larry Pusateri has completed almost two dozen special needs affordable housing developments. LCRDC is a non-profit organization developing and managing affordable housing in Lake County of 37+ years with over 1100 apartments developed.

The 40 apartments will be affordable to households earning up to 60% of the area median income, based on household size. LCCIL will provide support and service referrals to residents, enabling Fairhaven Crossing to provide an integrated living environment for individuals and families with disabilities.
