Situated on a site formerly occupied by a furniture store and an awning factory, this 18-unit, 52,000-square foot project employs transitional design. The $8 million urban infill development required intensive coordination with the Illinois Department of Transportation because of its location along Roosevelt Road, a state route. Altierra performed on-site asbestos remediation of the building before tearing it down. Also, bricks were up-cycled after demolition, along with large timbers and other material. In addition, Altierra built out and staffed a sales center during the preconstruction and construction phases to create an inviting and convenient setting for buyers to customize their units.
