ELEVEN40

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

• 197-units

• 8-story

Eleven40’s design concept is about contrast and layers. The angular lobby has a sense of drama with its dark, faux leather walls, tall volume, and a giant two-story green wall. The simple black and white color palette is layered with the warmth of wood tones and textiles. The built and natural worlds collide with the insertion of greenery throughout this high-rise, concrete structure. The goal was to create spaces that are full of life in all forms.

CITY CLUB APARTMENTS CINCINNATI

CINCINNATI, OHIO

• 26-story

• 320 units

City Club Apartments Cincinnati is the restoration and adaptive reuse of a historic Cincinnati landmark. Constructed in 1928, this 450,000 SF Beaux Arts building is in the heart of Cincinnati’s downtown business district. The site is located along the Ohio River and was once home to the 340-room Burnet Hotel, which opened in the 1850s. The hotel had a rich history and hosted multiple memorable figures, including Abraham Lincoln. It closed in 1926 and was demolished the same year.

City Club Apartments Cincinnati was designed to maximize the value of the original character of the building by restoring high ceilings and the building’s historic finishes. In an effort to creatively used the building’s utilitarian mechanical plant that was added in the 1980s, BKV Group created a rooftop amenity space that houses the indoor pool, the skyclub, and two outdoor terraces.

YOUNION @ ANN ARBOR

ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN

• 14,308 SF

• 10-story

The Younion @ Ann Arbor project scope includes the renovation of the lobby, leasing office and student amenity spaces within an existing student housing property on the University of Michigan campus. The project included a complete refresh of the existing lobby space, activating the main entry with areas to gather, study and revive at a new coffee bar. Leasing staff gain visibility and access to residents by spending a portion of their day working out of the lobby area at a leasing perch that doubles as study space for residents after hours. New package lockers were added to handle the increasing need to manage online deliveries to residents. The streetscape was activated by adding a new fitness center at grade which provides another new window into the Younioun property for pedestrians. A 10th floor clubroom and fitness space has been transformed into a flexible study lounge which accommodates single students to larger groups. Booth seating, communal tables and varied lounge groupings draw students 24/7.

ARKADIA

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

• 33-story

• 350-unit

Originally built in 2015 and located in the heart of Greektown, this luxury high rise had great bones, but its interiors were lacking the artistic energy and residential warmth its West Loop residents desired. The interior refresh of Arkadia was achieved by melding spunky colors, playful patterns, and unexpected use of scale.

ANTHOLOGY OF SIMSBURY

SIMSBURY, CONNECTICUT

• 40 Memory Care Units

• 80 Assisted Living Units

Anthology of Simsbury project features 80 assisted living units and 40 memory care units for a building total of 120 units. The project site is part of a larger master development called The Greenbriar Development. The three-story building design was inspired by a Northeast rural New England manor and Talcott Mountain to the East.

The three story building is defined by its expressed bays and large steep gables. Additionally, the building features a prominent point of entry and porte cochere, white trimmed bays filled with glass at the dining rooms and at the front of the building, cast stone chimneys, a large outdoor courtyard to the west, and a memory care enclosed courtyard to the north. The white bay on the northeast of the building provides residents outdoor access at level 3 for views of the mountain, Heublein Tower, and the Farmington River.

A protype was developed and utilized for two similar sites near Hartford Connecticut. The building located in Simsbury led the design concept. The design was then slightly modified to fit the Farmington site and context.

THE FYNN ELMHURST, ILLINOIS

• 7-story project over 1-story podium

• 212 units

The project was designed as a courtyard building starting on the second floor facing Addison street. This is done in order to minimize the building’s presence along Addison Street in addition to maximizing the amount of afternoon sun that would reach the outdoor pool. The building is set back from the Addison street, creating the appearance of a 7-story structure.

The project is designed to create an active street and pedestrian experience. By locating the fitness center, lobby/ lounge, leasing offices, and bike lounge spaces along Addison Avenue, the first-floor parking and service spaces are concealed from view, apart from the lower level garage entry on the south end of the site. The second floor is set back from the property line along the north and south sides and is composed of residential units, a clubroom amenity space and a landscaped terrace with an outdoor pool, individual unit terraces, and other outdoor amenities. Levels 3-7 are the typical residential levels, with the 8th-floor setback from the street, north, and south property lines creating terraces for the top-level units.

CITY CLUB APARTMENTS LAFAYETTE PARK

DETROIT, MICHIGAN

Spearheading the interior design for this project (AOR McIntosh Poris Associates is responsible for the architecture), the design opportunity for this community involved rebranding and transforming a 1970s building to align with the eccentric and inviting City Club Apartments brand. Upgrades included a full redesign of the building façade, and within the interior, updating the unit finishes plus incorporate a series of new environments including: a new outdoor pool deck, Zen Garden, amenity area, fitness, clubroom, co-working, business center, lobby, and leasing office.

The aesthetic is extremely bold and offers an eclectic, standout design using eccentric colors, patterns, and textures. The resident social spaces allow renters to engage with their community with this development offering affordable housing options, in addition to market-rate units.

The resulting building features four different unit finish packages, providing the renter with options that appeal to their individual tastes. The outdoor amenity spaces are a huge draw for residents with areas for swimming, lounging, dining, relaxing, meditating, and entertaining all incorporated into the final product. Plus, they get a unique experience with the new exterior façade being a nod to green foliage creating an urban treehouse, and the interior amenity spaces offering art and accessories that tie to the neighborhood and local Detroit history.

CITY CLUB APARTMENTS CBD DETROIT

DETROIT, MICHIGAN

• 275,000 sf

• 288 Units

Developed as a Class A residential building in downtown Detroit CBD, this eye-catching development creates a custom retail, restaurant, and residential experience to enhance the quality of neighborhood, and bring a new nexus point in a gateway urban corridor. A market-rate property that looks like no other in the Detroit market, the design features an indoor/ outdoor amenity package that allows residents to have a “one-stop shop” experience by providing every service they would need in one location, packaged in a structure that honors the history of the site and city and brings a modern interpretation to the downtown area.

STREAMWOOD VILLAGE HALL & PUBLIC WORKS RENOVATION

STREAMWOOD, ILLINOIS

BKV Group performed a space needs analysis and space utilization master plan for the Village of Streamwood, evaluating the layout, efficiency, code compliance, security, etc. of the Village Hall, Police Station, three Fire Stations, the Community Development Garage, and the Public Works facility. BKV Group then worked with each department to discuss their workflows and overall space needs, now and in the future.

Following the Study, BKV Group was asked to design the recommended changes to Village Hall and part of the work recommended for Public Works. In addition, the Village requested asbestos testing and work on the exterior of the Village Hall. The design team documented the existing conditions and worked closely with the Village to identify the exact scope of work necessary. Detailed 3D models were created to walk the Village Board members through the customer service experience and to allow staff to look around and understand where cash drawers, monitors, card readers, forms, etc. would be located. Construction of the project was accomplished in six phase in order to not interrupt operations for the public.

ALPENA COUNTY JAIL

ALPENA, MICHIGAN

The new $9.7M Sheriff’s Office and Jail facility is currently in the schematic design phase and will be located on a county owned site east of the Alpena County Airport. Pre-design services were completed by another team - unfortunately they were local and did not have experience in planning or constructing a Sheriff’s Office and Jail. Unfortunately for the county, the construction cost was 40% lower than comparable costs in Michigan, and there was a error their space program spread sheet, showing but not calculating required day-room spaces for all the housing units. The county passed a bond referendum unknowingly with bad information. Our task was to maximize their budget and deliver a great facility that met the requirements they described to the voters.

The 108-bed jail will include a new Sheriff’s Office, booking center with a drive-through sallyport, a men’s direct supervision housing unit for 43, women’s intermittent supervision housing unit for 30, Maximum Security / Special Housing for 27 people, Trustee dormitories for 8 people, kitchen, laundry, and Sheriff’s Vehicle and Bulk Storage Facility

DETROIT LAKES POLICE & CITY HALL STUDY

DETROIT LAKES, MINNESOTA

The City of Detroit Lakes selected BKV Group to perform a facility assessment and space needs analysis of its Police Department and City Administration Building. The team conducted an audit of the existing facilities to determine the site conditions including utilities, building shell condition, mechanical and electrical systems, code deficiencies and energy usage.

Following the audit, BKV Group conducted an assessment to determine the current and projected space needs of each department. The team then created plan options to determine the best approach to meet the needs of each department. The options included remodeling the existing facilities, relocating both departments into the current administrative building, or relocating to a new site.

BKV Group created a detailed cost assessment of each option and provided the city with a report to help the city determine the best approach to meet its needs

BUREAU COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE & JAIL

PRINCETON, ILLINOIS

Studies dating back from 2007 noted the jail has become overcrowded, too small and unsafe, and fails to comply with a number of state and national standards. The issue hasn’t gone away in the passing years. The County purchased an existing 21,000-square foot office and warehouse facility.

BKV Group completed a study to show how the existing facility could be reused for a sheriff’s office, 9-1-1 communications center and have an 80-bed jail attached. The study showed that the building and property allowed for the reuse of and remodeling of the building with an addition at a cost savings of more than $3.3M versus new construction. The new 80-bed jail addition includes the following spaces: drive through two-lane sallyport, pre-booking center with medical evaluation room, intoxilator room, and after-hours visiting; intake/release center; kitchen and laundry; recreation space; program space; medical suite; central control; contact and non-contact professional visitation; public video visitation; Sheriff’s Office, Training Center, and 9-1-1 Communications Center.

SPRINGFIELD FIRE STATION #4

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI

When the City of Springfield decided to build its first new fire stations in years, Esterly, Schneider & Associates searched the nation to find the best consultant to help work together on this project and selected BKV Group as the Fire Station Consulting Architects and Engineers. This Team started the design process by touring several existing fire stations with a large team of firefighters and city staff to learn about the Department’s standards, needs, and preferred equipment. Then the team created detailed space standards to allow the city to visualize the building programs and confirm that the proper equipment and furniture fit in the space allotted.

The fire station will contain gender-neutral facilities, lactation rooms, appropriate decontamination spaces, separate contaminated and clean zones, and physical conditioning spaces. Fire Station #4 houses six firefighters to staff an engine and a medic. The site is very narrow, so the fire station lays out with the bunk rooms above the living spaces. A fire pole speeds response from the second floor. The two-bay design uses brick and cast stone for longevity and includes a small canopy at the public entry to aid wayfinding for the public. The Station will be LEED Silver in compliance with City statute.

SPRINGFIELD FIRE STATIONS #7, #13, AND #14

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI

Like with Fire Station #4, the City of Springfield decided to build its first new fire stations in years, Esterly, Schneider & Associates searched the nation to find the best consultant to help work together on this project and selected BKV Group as the Fire Station Consulting Architects and Engineers. The fire stations will contain gender-neutral facilities, lactation rooms, appropriate decontamination spaces, separate contaminated and clean zones, and physical conditioning spaces. Fire Station #7 is located on a major thoroughfare across from a new grocery store. The existing fire station had drainage issues and is a small, outdated fire station. Adjacent development left no possibility for expansion and new zoning codes restrict the buildable area. A new two-story station with traditional fire station features will provide high visibility for the Department as citizens

come and go from the grocery store. Fire Station #13 is located on Route 66 down the street from one of the City’s first fire stations. The tight site accommodates a two-bay drive-through fire station with living quarters and bunk rooms above the bays. Two fire poles speed response, a roof patio over the support spaces, and a new tower pays homage to the former College Avenue Station. Station #14 will be a new station in the northwest section of town on a large parcel of land. This project proceeded through Schematic Design and is expected to move forward in a few years. The initial design uses Station #13 as a prototype but has an option for a multipurpose room to support the community-based fire protection model used in Springfield. The Stations will be LEED Silver in compliance with City statute.
