We held a groundbreaking ceremony for our new multi-family residential project, Burlington Station, on Friday, October 7th. The four-story, 89-unit community is our first traditional multi-family development since we completed Maple Lane Apartment & Executive Suites in Elkhart, IN in the early 1990s.

Demolition has begun on the existing bank building (that has been vacant for several years) that exits on the site currently. A few weeks ago, we shared the history of the project with everyone, including photos of the Downers Grove Fire Department using the bank building for training. This time, we’re sharing photos of the building as it was on October 7th and the groundbreaking ceremony.

We’re excited to share this new project with all of you and be sure to visit us again for more progress updates. You can also Follow our blog for notification of when we post about Burlington Station.

Enjoy the photos!
