NJD worked with developers to renovate a run-down Highland Park apartment building, branding it with a memorable name, and transforming both the common areas and the individual units for an elevated tenant experience.  

A tired, thirsty front lawn was replaced by more climate-friendly landscaping, with an inviting hammock to beckon tenants and potential renters at once. NJD collaborated with artist B-Luv on a mural to provide visual balance to the odd proportions of the apartment building. The interior courtyard, which once faced the parking lot, was fenced in and re-conceived as an inviting community space with umbrellaed dining tables, a fire-pit and games.

Inside the units, we designed new kitchens and bathrooms for all the apartments, and handled staging for each one as they became available for rental.
