Forest-Peirce Rehab Updates

Last winter, HCA purchased ten "new-to-us" units in Arlington Heights. Called the Forest-Peirce Project, the Peirce building is made up of four spacious one-bedroom units, and the adjacent Forest building holds one one-bedroom apartment and five two-bedrooms. The units are currently being outfitted with new kitchens, new bathrooms, new windows, new flooring, insulation and other amenities. For more information about the work we're doing on this Project, check out this link.

Take a look at these shots of our progress:
A photo of one of the old kitchens at our Forest property. Great light, nice space but clearly needs some updating.

Here's the another kitchen at the same property in the middle of renovation. We picked up the vinyl flooring and put in new tiles. Next are new cabinets...

Complete and beautiful! New appliances finish off a bright and airy eat-in-kitchen in this two-bedroom apartment. All it needs now is a good cook and some good eaters!

With the hard work of our contractors at Feinmann, Inc., HCA is on its way to having ten more affordable units in our portfolio. Stay tuned for more updates!
