Douglass Square transforms a failed public housing complex into a beautiful residential property, and has helped to reenergize the surrounding neighborhood. The property sits on a 9-acre in-fill site close to downtown Champaign, and blends a traditional neighborhood plan with pedestrian-friendly streets in an intimate neighborhood setting. Designed with a Midwestern flair, the buildings incorporate pitched roofs and gables, wide, welcoming front porches and lively color patterns that animate the surrounding community. Property amenities include a community center with a kitchen, meeting rooms, laundry facilities, tot lot, on-site management, landscaped green spaces, central AC, ample storage, and one, two, three and four-bedroom floor plan styles.
