WARRENVILLE -- Atlantic Residential has selected McShane Construction to build a 259-unit, multi-building residence that will be known as Everton Flats.
The property, located off Route 59 between Albright Street and the Illinois Prairie Path Trail, will incorporate sustainable features and a number of tenant amenities, according to Rosemont-based McShane.
The market-rate, walk-up style apartments will incorporate 259 units divided between seven three-story buildings on a 10.34-acre parcel of land. Units will offer a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom configurations. The buildings will feature wood frame construction with an exterior of brick veneer and hardie siding. The buildings feature a contemporary urban design and have direct exterior entries to over 50% of the apartments.
Prior to the start of construction, McShane worked with the development team and architect to design the mechanical, electrical and plumbing components in a design/build capacity. They also implemented value engineering in order to reduce construction costs while still maintaining the integrity of the design. One of the ways they achieved this was by electing to use prefabricated components, including the walls, floors and roofs.
To reduce energy consumption, the residence will incorporate sustainable features including solar panels at the pool shelter, conduit rough-ins on all apartment roofs to facilitate future solar panel installation and LED lighting in the parking lots.
Completion of Everton Flats is expected in summer 2021. The architect of record for this design/build project is HKM.
