RE Journals features our nearly complete development, Westerly. Read the full article here.
“Chicago-based developer Fifield Cos. announced the name Westerly for its development at 740 N. Aberdeen Street in Chicago’s River West neighborhood. Opening this fall, the 11-story building will include 188 apartments, 2,400 square feet of ground-floor retail and a public park.
“The name Westerly draws inspiration from the building’s location in the quieter, less dense River West neighborhood, which is still close to all the city center has to offer, but far enough away to be a distinctive neighborhood that celebrates both its factory history and a modern, comfortable aesthetic,” said Jon Schneider, senior vice president at Fifield Cos. “Being able to live in a building with the finishes and amenities of a new-construction luxury apartment while surrounded by a mix of old and new architecture appeals to so many Chicagoans. We are delivering on that demand with Westerly.”
Fifield Cos. has hired Greystar to manage the building and general contractor McHugh Construction continued work on the building throughout the spring, keeping with the original timeline for delivery. The firm is nearing completion of the unit finishes.
“Our project team quickly innovated and adapted new protocols on the job site to keep everyone safe while also keeping the project on schedule,” said Ray Cisco, project executive with McHugh Construction. “I’m proud of our dedicated team of construction professionals who made the best of a challenging situation to ensure the timely construction of Westerly.”
