Last week, architectural railing manufacturer, Kane Innovations, secured work on two large projects in major metropolitan areas.

The first, dubbed The Lincoln Common in Chicago, Illinois (pictured left), is a luxury apartment complex with a total of 538 units and 60 low-rise condominium residences.  The property also includes approximately 100,000 square feet of retail space.   

Kane Innovations will be providing over 4,300 linear feet of Chesterfield 2-line aluminum and glass railing for the balconies, 92 linear feet of aluminum and glass windscreen for the 20th floor, and 391 linear feet of Classic, 2-line aluminum picket railing which will be mounted to the terrace parapet wall. 

The second property, Gables Republic Square (pictured bottom right), is a mixed-use, urban residential tower in Austin, Texas, with street-level retail and a boutique ZaZa Hotel.  Levels eight through twelve will feature a mix of opulent hotel rooms, fine dining, a cocktail lounge, and ballrooms. 

At present, Kane Innovations will be providing over 6,000 linear feet of Classic picket railing on over 300 balconies.  The railing will also be installed on a 7th-floor pool deck and an upper roof area.
