Everleigh, a condominium project under construction in Des Plaines, represents Sertus Capital Partners’ response to the demand for luxurious living in the Chicago’s suburbs. In the June issue of New Homes, Sertus principal Michael Glazier explains his building philosophy and how it ties into his decision to build 144 urban-style condos on Des Plaines’ River Street.
“‘Sertus’ in Latin means ‘linked’ or ‘connected,’” says Glazier, who wanted to create a luxury condominium lifestyle near suburban transit systems.
“Everleigh is just a block from the Metra station. That location makes it a convenient extension of city living into Des Plaines for those who work downtown or want proximity to O’Hare or the expressways.”
The downtown Des Plaines setting provides an ideal location for a building that is truly the first of its kind for the area. The warm masonry glass and renaissance exterior creates a new architectural context between the downtown area and the forest preserve that borders one entire side of the building.
