ESG planned and designed the Elan Uptown according to principles articulated in the Uptown Small Area Plan. Density, aesthetics, community, sustainability and context were among the plan’s principles, which ESG addressed with intelligence and sophistication. The vibrant Uptown area near the Chain of Lakes is known for diverse recreational activities and the Midtown Greenway bicycle path. The area also includes a variety of single-family residences, apartments and condominiums; a multi-model transit hub; and a variety of restaurants, grocery stores and retail. Accordingly, the Elan Uptown is a high-density, LEED-certified, modern apartment complex that blends in seamlessly with the existing urban fabric.
