Esker Square Apartments to Open in April

The second 45-unit building is now pre-leasing

Construction on the second Esker Square apartment building is planned to conclude in April. The Esker Square project now totals 90 units and about 90,000 square feet of living space. As reported by Fox47 last summer, this $20 million project has been over six years in the making. The Delhi Downtown Development Authority and the Gillespie Company used Brownfield Redevelopment Funds to help clean up contamination on the site, which formerly housed a carwash.

Scott Gillespie, CEO of the Gillespie Company, stated in our interview, “Working with the township has been fantastic. They know what they want. And to be in an area where they’ve done the vision and the work, that only adds to the success of the project and the success of this area as a whole.”

Every unit at Esker Square has a balcony, and the two buildings are connected by a courtyard which will allow residents to enjoy social activities and soak up some sun. As I walked around, I saw residents relaxing on their balconies and taking in the surprise, 50 degree weather in February. The units are 1 or 2 bedrooms and rent for between $1,200-$1,600 per month. One bedroom units are 770 square feet, while the 2-bedroom apartments cover 1,090 sq ft. Plans to build a small dog park for residents are underway, it will be located behind the parking lot.

Gillespie said, “I’d show you a unit in the first building, but we’re completely full. That’s a good thing.” We toured the second building as construction was still ongoing in the interiors of each unit. On a third story unit, we went out onto the balcony so I could snap a photo of Scott. On the ground floor, a member of the construction crew posed near the almost-finished entrance to the second building. Said Gillespie, “The second unit is already pre-leasing. We’ll be open in April.”
