Flexible framework for downtown lombard siTe

The Village of Lombard initiated an RFP that’s goal was to attract new businesses to it’s awaking downtown. LJC worked hand-in-hand with a local boutique grocery store that wanted a presence in the city center. Alone, the grocery store could not be built alone and required to be subsidized. LJC sought out a developer to undertake this unique downtown opportunity for the future of Lombard. LJC created a plan that that proposes a 120-unit multi-family residential with an amenity deck and ground floor, corner coffee shop. This framework enables the boutique grocer to have a downtown location while providing a central location for residential living.
