ELGIN -- The construction project to turn the former Larkin Center in Elgin into affordable housing is progressing with a late fall 2020 completion date projected.
The 3.4 acre site consists of six, two-story, three-bedroom unit townhouse buildings; six two-story stacked flats buildings containing one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, plus, the historic adaptive reuse of the three-story Larkin Center and one-story manager's building, resulting in a total of 48 units.
Joseph J. Duffy Co. is the general contractor on Full Circle Communities' development.
"The focal point of the project is preserving and converting a historic three-story building, dating from 1912, into 11 living units and a common area," said Joseph Beuttas, vice president of business development for Joseph J. Duffy Co.
J.J. Duffy Co. provided preconstruction services, concluding in a lump sum contract to construct the project, working with Cordogan, Clark & Associates architects. It is the third project the Chicago construction company has worked on with Full Circle Communities.
