Residential | THE OPUS GROUP - UPTOWN LA GRANGE

A Downtown Gateway

OPUS USES AN INTEGRATED APPROACH ON A MAJOR PROJECT IN A CHICAGO SUBURB. BY JIM HARRIS

F

or more than eight years, visitors to
the downtown area of La Grange,
Ill., saw either a shuttered former
YMCA building or an empty lot at
the shopping and dining district's north
end. Today, shoppers and diners in the western Chicago suburb are seeing significant
progress at the intersection of La Grange
Road and Ogden Avenue, the downtown
district's northern gateway.
Work began in October 2015 on a $60
million residential complex that represents
the first significant development on the
land since 2007, when the Rich Port YMCA
closed its doors. The YMCA, which had
served residents for nearly 60 years, was
demolished in 2010.
The 442,028-square-foot apartment
building, dubbed "Uptown La Grange," will
greatly improve the look of the downtown
area, which features upscale boutiques,
shops and restaurants. The complex also
will add needed housing to a community
that is considered one of the Chicago area's
top transit-oriented suburbs.
The Opus Group is the owner/developer
of the site as well as its project's architect,
engineer and general contractor. "This
complex is within walking distance from
a commuter train station," the company
says. "This is one of the best locations in the
suburban Chicago area."

Work concluded earlier this year on a
five-story precast concrete parking structure
that will form the center of the Uptown La
Grange project. Construction of the wood
frame structure of the residential building,
which wraps around the parking garage, is
25 percent complete. The completed portion
of the residential building has been enclosed, allowing crews to begin installation
of drywall and utilities in that area.
The building's exterior will be comprised
of brick and fiber cement siding. The project
is anticipated for completion in early 2017.
