LCM is designing one of our largest to-date multifamily developments in Normal, Illinois. The proposition of a huge factory of a reputed car company in the vicinity of the site promoted an increased residential demand in the area. The site has easy access from the interstate. The development comprises of 477 dwelling units including studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, and 7 townhomes.
Maximizing lot usage, navigating neighboring community approvals, and working around the existing retention pond on-site were some of the challenges accomplished by the master plan.
