By | Construction Update

CHICAGO (Oct. 19, 2021) – Chicago-based developer Focus and its exclusive sales and marketing firm, @properties Development Group, have announced that condominiums are now sold out at Kelmscott Park, a luxury residential community in the heart of Lake Forest.

The redevelopment of a former municipal equipment storage site just north of downtown Lake Forest, Kelmscott Park is the first large-scale, residential master-planned development built in Lake Forest in nearly a decade. The development, which offers mid-rise condominiums, apartments and maintenance-free single-family surrounded by open space with English garden-inspired landscaping, has revitalized and beautified the north end of downtown Lake Forest. Focus acquired the land from the city in 2016 after winning a competitive bid.

The 24 two- and three-bedroom condos were priced from $650,000 to over $1.1 million, and feature luxury finishes among 1,528 to 2,565 square feet of living space.

In addition to Focus and @properties, the Kelmscott Park project team includes Chicago-based Booth Hansen Architects and Lake Bluff-based Mariani Landscape.

“The Kelmscott Park condos filled the need for maintenance-free living in Lake Forest, offering a suburban feel only steps from the city’s historic downtown,” said Tim Anderson, CEO of Focus. “The last couple of years in particular really fueled this market as Lake Forest real estate enjoyed a strong resurgence and people looked to downsize without leaving the area.”

“Since its inception, there has been great energy behind the revitalization of this property,” said Cyndy Salgado, executive vice president of sales at @properties Development Group. “Focus, Booth Hansen and Mariani went above and beyond to ensure this community appealed to North Shore buyers, offering the aesthetics, convenience and amenities they were looking for.”
