DOWNERS GROVE, IL – August 30, 2022 – Elaine and Brita Pagels of the Elaine Pagels Group in the Downers Grove office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago are pleased to announce that construction is nearing completion and leasing is beginning at Fairview Station Flats in Downers Grove, Illinois. Fairview Station Flats is a brand new 3-story apartment building comprised of 18 sleek rental residences. Elaine and Brita Pagels are the exclusive marketing agents for the property which is located at 5117 S. Fairview Avenue.


“I am delighted to bring Fairview Station Flats to the Downers Grove community,” said Elaine Pagels. “With its close proximity to the BNSF Metra Fairview Avenue train station, transportation could not be easier and the location between the Downers Grove and Westmont downtowns is ideal. It’s close to the Farmer’s Market, restaurants, shops, Whittier Elementary School, Hummer Park, a nature preserve with a pond and a playground. Pepperidge Farms is close by, so the smell of bread wafts through the air. It’s heavenly.”


Brita Pagels added, “I’m excited that Ross Builders pursued this project which delivered more housing units in close proximity to transit and met goals in the regional plan as well as many municipal plans. Fairview Station Flats was designed by Studio21 Architects, a Downers Grove-based architecture firm, and is a project that is going to be a wonderfully welcome addition to the community.”


The building has a modern aesthetic with a black, white and gray color palette. Fourteen apartments have two bedrooms and two bathrooms while four apartments have two bedrooms and one bathroom. The first floor units are ADA adaptable. The building is smoke free and pet-friendly with a pet limit of two and a combined weight limit of 75 pounds.


Residences range from approximately 1,000 to 1,300 square feet and feature open floor plans designed to take advantage of the abundant natural light surrounding the building on all four sides. All units have outdoor space whether it is a private balcony or a patio. Units have 9’ ceilings, trendy lighting and luxury plank flooring. They also have custom window roller shades and custom closets. Laundry, utilities and mechanicals are all in-unit.


Kitchens have quartz counters, tile backsplashes, 42” cabinets with soft close doors and drawers, Whirlpool stainless steel Energy Star appliances and eat-in kitchen islands. Bathrooms include Moen bath fixtures, frameless shower doors, and double vanities.


Parking consists of 12 garage spaces with possibility of EV charger conduit run to each. There are 29 exterior parking spaces, two of which have EV charger conduit. Two units have private, attached garages. There are four motor cycle parking spaces.


Rent at Fairview Station Flats ranges from $2,220 to $3,000 per month. Delivery will occur in the Fall of 2022.
