Topping Off Kelmscott Apartments

(Chicago, IL) On Thursday, June 29th the Focus team was joined by our subcontractors and various stakeholders of the Kelmscott Park project to celebrate the topping off of three luxury apartment buildings located in the heart of Lake Forest.

A meal served in the recently enclosed structure offered an opportunity for Focus leadership to address our subcontractors, consultants and vendors and thank them for their contributions to Kelmscott Park. All attendees enjoyed grilled burgers and sausages and received a t-shirt commemorating the project.

After lunch, Jeremiah Miller, Senior Project Manager in Lake Forest stood to address the group, “Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. These three buildings were erected incredibly fast and we know it is due to the efforts of those in this room.  We wanted to show our appreciation in some small way.”

Located at 1080 N. Western Ave, the Kelmscott Park Apartments include three buildings, 111 luxury rentals and are a part of a larger luxury community featuring 42 condominiums and 12 customizable single family homes. The rental program at Kelmscott Park offers the first luxury rental product in Lake Forest and features condominium quality unit finishes as well as a 3,744 sf clubhouse and an exterior patio terrace looking out over landscaped grounds by Mariani.

Now that the buildings have been topped off, the team is focused on fine-tuning the brick and limestone exterior facade and shaping out the large contemporary floorplans that will make up the interior. Pre-leasing is scheduled to begin this September with the first move-in’s taking place this winter.
