A groundbreaking ceremony was held this week at the site of Whispering Heights, a new $34 million mixed‐use community located off Illinois Route 157 in Edwardsville.
Swansea-based Holland Construction Services is working with Edwardsville developer Fireside Financial on the project.
When completed, Whispering Heights will be the tallest buildings in Edwardsville. The community will feature two six‐story buildings with a total of 153 luxury apartments and 18,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
Residents of Whispering Heights will enjoy a state‐of-the‐art fitness center, private entrances, private parking garage, business center, and a roof top “amenity deck” with grilling stations, fire pits, an enclosed kitchenette, and bar area. The luxury apartment units will range from studios to 2‐bedroom suites of up to 1,100 square feet and feature stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and high‐end finishes throughout.
“Fireside Financial is proud to bring Whispering Heights, a mixed‐use community, to the City of Edwardsville,” said Brian Tempest, vice president of Hearth Construction Management, the owner’s representative for the project.
Gray Design Group of St. Louis and Edwardsville is the architect on the new complex. Work is scheduled to be complete in fall of 2019.
