Prairie Shores

Along with its joint venture partner Crea Construction, a minority- and woman-owned general contracting firm, McHugh Construction will complete a multi-phased interior renovation to more than 1,381 units at Prairie Shores, a five-tower apartment complex in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood.

Within the apartments, the McHugh/Crea joint venture is overseeing the installation of new appliances, countertops, plank flooring, plumbing, fixtures and lighting, plus electrical system upgrades and painting. Building corridors will also receive new finishes. The team began staggered renovations of the classic studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments at Prairie Shores in the fall of 2020. With units being renovated in phases, the community could maintain its high occupancy levels and minimize disruption for current residents.
