Portfolio Map

Valley Lo Towers

Opportunity

A confined and outdated kitchen gave the apartment an old, tired feel that was not attractive to today’s residents.

Solution

Created a bright, more open feel by removing a wall and updating the kitchen with contemporary appliances and finishes that a potential resident would see in newer apartment buildings.

Updated kitchen: Valley Lo Towers (Chicago, IL), 1985, 112 units

Water’s Edge

Opportunity

An on-site racquetball court was outdated and underutilized while the existing fitness facility was undersized and viewed negatively by prospective residents.

Solution

Transformed the racquetball court into a two-room, state-of-the-art fitness facility with top-of-the-line equipment. The lower portion of the racquetball court was converted to storage for residents, and the former fitness facility was repurposed into a club room adjacent to the pool deck, which is well used by residents.

Updated racquetball court/gym: Retreat at Water’s Edge (Denver, CO), 1985, 252 units

Arbors

Opportunity

Inadequate and lackluster furniture with limited shade at a heavily utilized pool area felt uninviting and underwhelming to prospective residents.

Solution

Updated the pool area with a contemporary color scheme, screened lanai, private cabanas, and summer kitchen with plush seating, hammocks and green areas.

Updated pool: Arbors at Carrollwood (Orlando, FL), 1999, 312 units
