Emerson Square

Location: Illinois

Use: Mixed Income Residential Rental
Cost: $12.8 million
Status: Completed 2013

A sweeping two-phase redevelopment of a former brownfield site, Emerson Square is the anchor for the City of Evanston’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program and the West Evanston Master Plan. Phase I will create 32 rental townhomes with 1 to 3 bedrooms in five buildings, while Phase II will add 28 apartments on an adjacent site. Both phases when complete will provide a total of 60 homes and apartments on 5 acres around a central park, in a setting designed to harmonize with the surrounding neighborhood. Emerson Square was presented with the Chicago Association of Realtors' 2014 Good Neighbor Award on May 22, 2014, for excellence in the residential/multi-unit construction category.
