Opus Time Lapse: Dash Downers Grove Apartments Completion

More about this project
The Village of Downers Grove, a growing suburb 25 miles west of Chicago, has a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly downtown. People are drawn to the variety of independent shops, restaurants and attractive green spaces. Dash Downers Grove, a seven-story, 167-unit apartment building, will support the lively downtown.​

The desirable metropolitan-style living community has convenient access to retailers, parks and the Metra rail station. The alcoves and one, two and three-bedroom apartments feature luxury finishes. Residents have access to wellness and lifestyle amenities including: 

  • work-from-home suites
  • clubroom with a demonstration kitchen, gaming areas and beautiful, three-sided view of downtown
  • state-of-the-art fitness center
  • conference room
  • coffee bar
  • outdoor pool with cabanas
  • resident grilling and outdoor kitchen area
  • outdoor seating areas and fire pits
  • pet spa and outdoor dog run
To manage downtown parking requirements, the project has two levels of covered, above-grade parking with 319 spaces, including 20 motorcycle spaces and 71 dedicated spaces for a neighboring church that previously used a surface parking lot on the site.

The project was a joint venture with Principal Real Estate Investors. Greystar is the property manager.
