The development contributes to a vital ‘live-work-play’ community.
LCM Architects is providing architecture services to Green Street Realty for the Fields South mixed-use development in Champaign, IL.
Phase II includes two, four-story buildings that feature 99 two-bedroom apartments and ground level commercial uses. The design creates two plazas by setting the buildings back from a main street bisecting the site. These open areas promote pedestrian activity and can accommodate outdoor restaurant seating. The two new buildings join similar mixed-use buildings that were designed by LCM and completed in Phase I of Fields South.
LCM uses the same palette for all buildings in the Fields South development to express a stylistically industrial quality. For a sleeker, more modern appearance, we introduced wood elements and full-height glass windows at the corner of Phase II buildings.
