Property details

The Quarters is the first new-construction private apartment building to be built in Downtown Champaign since the 1930s. The first tenants moved in August 2014. It is five stories and is just under 75 feet high. It has over thirty thousand square feet of residential living space in a building that is a post-modern interpretation of the Spanish Colonial style. The design inspirations for The Quarters are the mansions from the 1800s, now often converted into boutique hotels that are found in the Dominican Republic, Cuba, and other Caribbean nations.

The Quarters features a Caribbean color palate but is tempered by the more formal colonial Spanish influenced stylings. Exterior architectural elements include special attention to exterior trim details. The large French doors with transoms, Juliette balconies, and windows all suggest a robust love for life and an embracing of the micro-urban lifestyle.

The Quarters is a modern state of the art building also, it is fully sprinkled, fully secured with cameras monitoring the garage and front entrance 24/7, with vastly superior insulation standards that far exceed the current building codes. The latter means both low power bills and a more comfortable living atmosphere.

Each apartment is heated and cooled with its own high efficiency heat pump that extracts heat from outside air in the winter and from inside the apartment in the summer. The exterior is wrapped with Zip System Wall sheeting which is the current state- of-the-art system for sealing a building from air penetration. The exterior siding is another top-notch product called Smart Side. It is what creates the traditional stucco look.
