Our History

Keep Blooming

It begins when we plant seeds. When we cultivate and care for them. When they bear fruit for the future.

The budding idea of Bloomhaven came when a group of local business leaders formed Fox Valley Park District with one goal; to preserve and repurpose the historic Copley campus and transform the Bardwell neighborhood. They formed Fox Valley Developers, an Aurora-Centric team of like minds and hearts, to bring renewing transformation to the area.

After watching the Bardwell Copley campus decay over the past several decades, these life-long friends decided to bring new life to the timeless space and bring tangible, immediate results for the City of Aurora they love.

By gathering a team of expert advisors, they’ve done more than made redevelopment a reality – they’ve created a new way to live.

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