On behalf of developer, Interfaith Housing Development Corporation, McShane Construction completed the extensive renovations and new construction of the 51,495 square foot Grove Apartments located in Oak Park, Illinois. ---
The former two-story Comcast office building was transformed into a LEED-Registered supportive and affordable housing residence with the new construction of two additional stories to the existing structure and the incorporation of numerous sustainable elements such as a geothermal HVAC system and energy-efficient windows and appliances.
The four-story complex now features 51 one-bedroom residential units on floors two through four, several of which are handicap accessible, together with on-floor laundry facilities. The ground level incorporates a large community room, tenant storage and 5,230 square feet of retail space. As part of the assignment, McShane Construction also restored the building’s original Albert Kahn design that required a comprehensive brick and precast façade makeover that replaced the former stucco exterior.
