Creating Value Through Design

BKV Group was tasked with bringing a tired high-rise to its full potential with a strategy inspired by the neighboring, historic Flair house, and the owners of a fantastic collection of Art Deco prints.

Lobby Area

This space now sparkles as bright as the new, custom chandelier with the Lobby now much more open and inviting with a glassy storefront beyond the elegant reception desk.

Leasing Area

The existing millwork in the Leasing Area was refinished with paint and trim, inset wallcovering, a new marble mantle, and soft drapery making it an incredibly elegant waiting area.

6th Floor Clubroom and Co-Working Space

Now newly expanded to maximize the connection to the outdoor pool deck.

Fitness Center

Our finish and furniture palette is full of sophistication and sparkle with little punches of art deco delight.  What used to be highly underused amenity space is now a lively and sought after destination.

A Transformation Delivered

The result of the aptly named Flair Tower was a comprehensive renovation, with the boutique apartment building fitting in perfectly with the swanky River North neighborhood.
