The City of Elgin purchased this condemned 3-story Italianate from the 1880’s through the federally funded Neighborhood Stabilization Program and retained Liska Architects to assist with the rehabilitation. Close to the downtown, this home is integral to the historic character of the neighborhood inspiring Liska Architects design for de-converting this 4 apartment property back to it’s original single family usage to retain and reconstruct the historic elements of both the interior and exterior. The rehabilitation also incorporates many energy saving techniques to retain original features while significantly reducing energy consumption.
