The hustle and bustle of Maple Street is heightened as the continued
vitalization of downtown has become a reality. Individuals, couples and families skirt by each other as the architectural streetscape is freshly marked by a significant presence, one of stateliness and well-appointed detail. Passers-by view the finished product, a new luxury condominium building constructed of exemplary quality and aesthetic appeal. This is The Marquis, an address which offers an elevated lifestyle of sophistication and comfort. Designed in a “Transitional Style”, The Marquis blends the historical proportions of classical
architecture with the clean lines of innovative materials and detailing.
Pedestrians walk by, heads are turned and there’s curiosity about what happens behind the large entry arch at the end of the private drive. This arched opening serves as a portal to both the covered Arrival Court and a living experience unique to any other in Downers Grove. Though entry through the front doors is secured, the public can peer through the tall glazed windows for a view of the opulent Resident’s Lounge. This spacious lobby serves as an exclusive gathering space for resident parties and programmed events. It’s an elegant, yet comfortable space filled with natural light and the design flexibility for expansion into the Private Club Room with bar and kitchen setup. This multi-purpose Club Room is also equipped with audio-visual capabilities that allow the use to transition from private parties to meetings. Located adjacent to the entrance with convenient access to the outdoors is the Fitness Center with state-of-the-art equipment. This highly active space contributes to the energetic ambiance and helps to foster a sense of community within the Resident’s Lounge.
With fully secured, climate controlled parking throughout remainder of the ground floor, all 55 condominium units are located on Levels 2 through 5 with expansive views over the Village. Unit designs are spaciously configured with open living areas and covered balconies; all kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures and interior finishes are high-end in quality and fresh in style. Located on the community grounds just beyond the Arrival Court is the Garden Lounge, an outdoor gathering space appointed with a built-in fire pit, group seating, gas grill, event lawn, and dog walk area. This retreat outside of the condominium walls is yet another amenity that establishes an exceptional lifestyle that is, The Marquis.”
