Wingspan Development Group, LLC and Nicholas and Associates, Inc. received Village Board approval for their new luxury apartment community near downtown Plainfield IL. The new community will feature 284 units spread among eight buildings with a fully amenitized clubhouse in the center. Previously, the development had received a unanimous approval recommendation by the Village’s Plan Commission. The development, called Sixteen30, will sit on nearly 15 acres along Wallin Drive approximately ¼ mile north of Lockport Street. “We’re very excited to bring this type of luxury lifestyle community to downtown Plainfield. Plainfield and its downtown have so much to offer.” said Chris Coleman, VP of Development for Wingspan.
As the Village’s website aptly describes, downtown Plainfield is a vibrant, pedestrian-focused destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. The dramatic streetscape enhancement and road reconstruction, completed in 2009, created raised intersections, mid-block pedestrian crossings, and wide sidewalks to establish a comfortable environment for pedestrians to shop and enjoy the backdrop of many of the beautifully restored historic buildings. The expanded sidewalks provide room for restaurants to offer al fresco outdoor dining. Decorative signage and extensive landscaping complement the historic architecture and contribute to Downtown Plainfield's distinctive sense of place.
“In the spring, summer and fall, the 15 minute walk from Sixteen30 to all the downtown shops, dining and entertainment will make this community unlike any other south suburban rental option. Also, the new Pace Express park-n-ride is less than a ½ mile walk. You typically just don’t see this type of convenience in a suburban setting,” added Coleman. Construction on Sixteen30 is expected to begin in late spring of 2019 with the clubhouse opening anticipated for late summer. The clubhouse amenities will include a pool, hot tub, outdoor grill, fitness center, yoga studio, club room, cyber café and package room. The community will feature a mix of studio, one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom floorplans.
