The Hill Condominiums
Situated in the heart of downtown Elmhurst, this 23-unit, 5-story building, is a luxury condominium development. The aesthetic of the building was to create a refined classical look similar to many of the historic homes located in the surrounding neighborhoods.
The exterior is finished with brick set into pre-cast concrete panels. Features such as balconies are adorned with subtle decorative lintels. Horizontal bands at each level of the building visually reduce the mass of the overall structure. Each residential unit features 9-foot ceilings, transoms over every door, and high-end bathrooms. Additionally, kitchens are well-appointed and include a center island and top-of-the-line stainless steel finished appliances. Building amenities include indoor parking and a rooftop deck with grills and seating areas.
VES exceeded the expectations by offering a multi-discipline team under one roof. A/E services were coordinated in-house, and the team worked as fast or, in some cases, delayed floor buildouts until KLM Development had secured tenants. In addition, architecture provided constant flexibility for tenants to customize high-end units.
Budget is always a priority to a developer, and VES maintained the original $14M construction cost. The schedule was a concern for KLM since the developer wanted to quickly gain initial tenants but not get too far ahead of buildouts until new tenants are identified. VES provided flexibility working closing with KLM bringing completion to The Hill in May 2020.
