Gut Renovated 4 Flat

This gut renovated 4 flat is a prime example of 3F’s construction expertise. Before renovation, this vacant and delipidated building was uninhabitable. The property was overrun with animals whose odor permeated into the walls. 3F engaged a specialty abatement firm to treat the odor and remove debris. After six months the gut renovated 4 flat was ready to occupy, on budget and schedule.

The renovated, three-story multifamily building featured (3), three bedroom one bath units, and (1) two bedroom one bath garden unit. Work included removing all interior materials including subflooring and some structural components to remediate the odor. Interior build-out included new mechanicals, plumbing and electrical systems, structural underpinning, all new granite and stainless kitchens, baths, hardwood floors, crown molding, interior paint and in-unit laundry.

Tenants at 1253 N California Ave, Chicago, IL 60622 enjoy the proximity to Humboldt Park, across the street. And, the condo quality finishes of the apartment units make them a breeze to lease.
