Octave opened to positive reviews from residents. “Bright rooms, great amenities, comfortable furniture, luxurious living,” noted Damian. “Not much more I could ask for in a college apartment. Great location, especially for engineering students.” Sean said “Absolutely amazing so far! Staff was great and very helpful with moving in. Also, I love all the amazing spaces for hanging out and getting work done. I'm so glad I chose this apartment building to live in!”

“We’re proud of the on-time delivery of Octave, and are happy to hear that our first residents experienced a smooth move-in process and are settling into their new home,” noted Russell Broderick, senior vice president for Gilbane Development Company. “With an ideal location just 2 blocks from campus, amenities designed specifically for UIUC students, and a wonderful property management staff to assist new residents, we look forward to watching the sense of community continue to build and grow.”
