Michael Fitzgerald Apartments, a 62,000-square-foot affordable senior housing facility in Chicago’s North Park Village neighborhood.

The project includes a precast concrete structure design, variable refrigerant flow HVAC system, double elevator shaft, ground-floor multipurpose room, library, computer room and fitness center. Serving as general contractor, Skender worked in collaboration with St. Louis Design Alliance, Harley Ellis Devereaux and Eriksson Engineering Associates to complete the residential complex. JMFA features one-bedroom apartments with full kitchens and baths. A new section of road was also added to the adjacent campus to improve traffic flow to and from the building.
