PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — The old Methodist College building in Peoria could see new life.

Phoenix Community Development Services, the largest supportive housing provider in the region, is seeking to convert the seven-story building into an apartment complex for homeless people.

On Thursday, the proposal was presented to the Zoning and Planning Commission, which recommended the plan for City Council approval.

The complex will have 55 units ranging studio to three-bedroom units and feature on-site case management to keep residents off the streets and in their apartments.

The proposal next heads to City Council for approval.
