Marquette Building Apartments
Main & Perry Streets
The Marquette Building Apartments were designed in 1924 by Hewitt & Emerson Architects, the same group that designed the Commerce Bank Building and the Pere Marquette Hotel.
Constructed originally as 34 Studio Apartments of about 450 square feet each they are now being completely restored to meet the needs of today. 18 units are being retained as originally designed Studios. The balance of the units are being combined to form 8 one bedroom one bath units and 2 two bedroom two bath units.
Most units have original hardwood floors which have been refinished to beautiful natural oak shine. The subway tile backsplashes in the kitchens give a retro look when combined with the granite counter tops and white shaker cabinets with black appliances.
All units have granite topped islands separating the kitchen from the living area. Each has a walk in closet or office and a small but attractive bathroom with ceramic surround shower/tub and ceramic floors.
Heating and cooling costs should be low thanks to European style heat and cooling pump units in each unit.
Technology has replaced the old 1924 phone lines with the latest in internet and data transmission cabling throughout the building.
The Building entrance is accessed by card access proximity locks. Visitors can be screened using your smartphone to view, speak and allow or deny entrance through the main building door. Cameras record activity on all sides of the building.
The apartments are reasonably priced at $695.00 for a Studio, $1,095.00 for a one bedroom and $1,395.00 for a two bedroom two bath unit. Rent includes hot and cold water and sewer. Parking is limited but can be rented at $55.00 per month per space.
Sorry, while we are pet lovers ourselves we don’t allow pets at these apartments.
Units should be available for viewing in late December of 2016 and available for occupancy in January of 2017. Located within in short walking distance to the University of Illinois College of Medicine & Unity Point Methodist Medical Center makes this a great location for medical students.
