Built on the site of a former neighborhood grocery store parking lot, this five-story luxury condominium development was originally envisioned as a 14-unit building. It turned out to be 11 units as Altierra worked with multiple design teams and homeowners to combine and customize units. Residences at Maple Place is one of the first LEED Gold luxury condo buildings outside of the city of Chicago, having attained the rare status through the use of innovative products and construction practices. Built from lot line to lot line, Maple Place is a byproduct of having worked closely with the local municipality throughout the planned development process. Altierra took the extraordinary measure of re-building the steel structure of an adjacent retail business’ roof to enable it to withstand additional snow load created by the new construction—all while the business continued operations. In addition, a strong design flourish on the building’s east side comes in the form of a strikingly attractive mosaic that tapped into the skills of local artists.
