Elgin Tower

60,000-square-foot, 15-floor renovation of the historic Elgin Tower Building in downtown Elgin, IL. Condemned in 2014, the building underwent a complete gut rehab transformation into 44 market-rate apartment units with modern finishes. Skender and the design team worked with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency to protect and preserve the building’s historic elements, which involved retaining original terrazzo in the corridors, refinishing or recreating wooden landmark unit entries, rebuilding elevators to operate within the existing shafts and much more.
