Design-Build Process Speeds Delivery of Residential Development

Grant Park is a three-phase residential development designed and constructed by Opus team members featuring city homes, a condominium tower and townhomes. The project includes 284 condominium units in a 27-story tower, 30 city homes surrounding a parking garage and 13 townhomes in a separate, freestanding building.

The architectural design and exterior of the three buildings complement each other with the townhomes and city homes featuring hand-set brick masonry and limestone-colored precast exterior. Grant Park Tower has precast cladding in a combination of limestone-colored column covers and panels that were cast to appear as hand-set brick masonry.

Grant Park City Homes average 2,000 square feet of enclosed living space and the layout varies from two-story “flats” and two-story “row-homes” with roof-top patios.

Grant Park Towers’ homes average 1,200 square feet of enclosed living space and most homes have their own exterior balcony.

The two-story Grant Park Townhomes average 2,200 square feet of enclosed living space and include a private vehicle parking area, lower level storage area and a roof-top patio area.

The amenities of Grant Park include a fitness center, enclosed swimming pool, steam room, resident business office, guest suites and a clubroom.

Opus implemented its integrated design-build construction approach to fast-track this project.
