Cambridge Manor

Location: Chicago, IL
Client: Cambridge Manor Tenant Council
Architect: Landon Bone Baker
Year Built: 2013

Cambridge Manor is a 27 story assisted living building comprised of 309 residential units. The units vary from studio apartments to one bedroom. Madison Construction worked with Landon Bone Baker Architects to develop a scope of work to improve both the aesthetics and workings of the building. All 309 residential units receive new kitchen cabinets, fixtures and appliances, bathroom finishes are updated as well as new flooring and painting. The building is also now compliant with modern ADA regulations including specialized cabinetry, grab bars and toilets for residents with disabilities. All unit renovation work was done without displacing residents, at the end of every workday a resident was provided with running water, bathroom and kitchen facilities for their comfort.

Outside of the residential units, all 27 corridors receive new carpeting, paint, lighting and a feature wall in the elevator lobbies. A community room on the mezzanine was also created to provide a space for residents to relax and hold parties and other building events. The elevator machines, doors, and other vital components were also brought up to modern standards. Lastly, all of the plumbing risers were replaced in the building, the existing pipes were heavily corroded and water pressure was lacking for many residents; the new system solves these problems.
