The Elmwood Collection


Repurposing an old building takes a lot of imagination

and is a great way to practice sustainability and boost innovation. We really focused on how people would interact in the space and their environment. The end result is 7 townhomes with a lot of natural light and outdoor spaces throughout.  They are dynamic, inviting, and pay homage to the adaptive reuse of the original warehouse. They are adjacent to a park, that we also designed, and the Skokie Valley Trail, which offers not only beautiful surroundings but a better quality of life. 



The Elmwood Collection has 7 townhomes, 2700 sq.ft.,

3 stories each, with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, 4 balconies and a common roof deck.
