Des Plaines, Illinois
Cumberland Crossing, a residential/retail complex adjacent to the Cumberland Metra Station in Des Plaines, Illinois, allows those who want to work or play in Chicago the opportunity to live outside the central city but enjoy immediate access to the business, cultural and recreational life in Chicago. The site also offers easy access to I-90 and I-294. O’Hare Airport is within 7.5 miles.
A mix of studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom units.
Preliminary projections are based on the construction of 406 apartment units; the unit count may be increased in the final design through increased numbers of studio and single-bedroom units.
Features include granite or quartz countertops in the kitchen with energy-efficient refrigerators, induction cooktops, microwave and conventional ovens, and dishwaters. In-apartment washers & dryers command higher rents and eliminate the need for a community laundry facility. All units will boast modern floor coverings, window coverings and color schemes. Community amenities include an indoor fitness center, outdoor pool, a grilling center, and secure bicycle storage.
Apartments at Cumberland Crossing are .5 miles (a 13-minute walk) from both an elementary school and a middle school.
Cumberland Crossing retail will consist of 2,000 square feet of ground-level retail that draws its clientele from apartment residents, Metra riders, and residents from the surrounding community.
The newly-renovated Cumberland Metra station has a grade-level crossing, allowing commuting Metra riders convenient access to Cumberland Crossing retail.
Construction schedules can accommodate either single-phase or two-phase schedules to provide the optimum balance between cash flow, construction costs, and market conditions.
