FirstService Residential, a leading property management company in Illinois, was selected managing agent for the Pac Lofts Condominium Association, located in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood, effective April 1, 2014.

“Pac Lofts Condominium Association is a great community and we are happy to join forces with them to enhance what this community has to offer. Our industry leading tools and best in-class services will enhance communication, and increase the overall management services available to the community,” said Asa Sherwood, FirstService Residential Illinois President.

Pac Lofts was originally built in 1908, and is an important part of Chicago’s heritage. It was home to the Felt and Tarrant Manufacturing Company, which specialized in Comptometers, one of the original adding machines. In the 1980’s the building was converted into the Paulina Arts Center, providing a mixed use of commercial lofts for artists and developing businesses. In 2007, the building morphed one final time, with a complete renovation into an upscale condominium community with 96 units. High-end amenities include a new landscaped courtyard, deeded parking, modern exercise room, dog wash area, wine cellar, and roof deck.

FirstService Residential provides full-service management solutions for various types of residential community associations and cooperatives including some of Illinois’s most beautiful and recognizable structures. Their team of management professionals has served the homeowners of Illinois since 1950, and today the company is recognized as one of the foremost community management companies throughout the State of Illinois.
