Greenleaf Manor is twenty townhome-style apartments in one three-story and two two-story buildings in Glenview, Illinois. The unit mix includes 2, 3 and 4 bedroom family units. All units feature energy-star rated appliances, screen doors, garage parking, and washer / dryers. The buildings are equipped with automatic sprinklers and a Class 1 fire alarm system, and also include a variety of energy saving "green" features and are built to Enterprise Green Communities standards.
The contemporary architecture features abstracted Prairie-Style detailing including deep cornice and horizontal banding to provide appropriate scale. Though face brick is the primary cladding material on all but the court elevations, fiber-cement (Hardie) siding and panels are used in multiple colors to differentiate units and reinforce the townhouse concept. Recessed entrances and bays at select units provide added variety.
