Chicago-based developer Fifield Cos. announced leasing has begun at Westerly, its 188-unit mixed-use apartment development at 740 N. Aberdeen Street in Chicago’s River West neighborhood, situated along the Hipster Highway bikeway and offering proximity to downtown and other popular urban neighborhoods. Fifield expects first move-ins in October.
Designed by FitzGerald Associates Architects and built by McHugh Construction, the property takes inspiration from the architectural history of the neighborhood with its brick and glass design. The upscale mid-rise includes a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, ranging in size from 544 to 1,513 square feet, with interiors by Morgante Wilson Architects.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and nine-foot ceilings afford ample natural light and stunning views of the cityscape from the open plan living space with kitchens that feature quartz countertops, soft-close cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The apartments also feature spa baths, custom closet organizers, in-unit washers and dryers, and plank flooring throughout. Some residences include balconies.
“Offering a range of apartment sizes and floor plan configurations means that Westerly appeals to a mix of residents who are looking for a home that provides convenient access to the city center, but without the hustle and bustle at their doorsteps,” said Jon Schneider, senior vice president at Fifield Cos. “Inside the building, our curated amenities are an extension of the individual units, providing space for working from home, maintaining a fitness routine or enjoying the outdoors on our large recreation terrace or at our adjacent public park.”
