CHICAGO, IL - Webster Square Apartments, the only new-construction luxury apartment building in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, has surpassed the 90-percent-leased mark with just six units remaining. The 75-unit building, developed and managed by affiliates of Chicago-based Sandz Development Company, Inc., opened this spring. Chicago-based brokerage firm @properties has overseen leasing and marketing.
Located at 558 W. Webster Ave., at the intersection of Webster and Lincoln Avenues, the apartment building is part of the larger Webster Square master-planned community, which is the redevelopment of the former Lincoln Park Hospital site. The development will also feature a 12-story luxury condominium building, eight single-family homes on Grant Street, a 255-car parking garage, and Mrs. Green’s Natural Market, which opened last year.
“Webster Square is a rare opportunity for new-construction apartment living in Lincoln Park. We’ve been helped by a strong apartment market, but ultimately it’s new construction in such an established location that has driven the rapid lease-up,” said Webster Square developer, Richard Zisook, president of Sandz Development Co., Inc.
“Sandz knows their market and they’ve delivered a first-class building. Right product, right place, right time,” said Thaddeus Wong, co-founder of @properties.
Among the upscale features in the apartments are 9’ ceilings; wide-plank flooring in living areas; stainless steel appliances; quartz countertops; contemporary European-style cabinetry; in-unit washer and dryer; Kohler and Grohe plumbing fixtures; and views of the downtown skyline, Oz Park and Lincoln Park.
Webster Square residents also have access to an assortment of amenities, including a fitness center, business center, bicycle storage, rooftop sundeck with gas grills and rooftop club room with kitchen. The building is also pet-friendly.
Located across the street from Oz Park in the heart of Lincoln Park, Webster Square is surrounded by shops and restaurants; top-notch public and private schools including Lincoln Elementary, Lincoln Park High School and Francis W. Parker; and cultural attractions such as The Lincoln Park Zoo and Steppenwolf Theatre.
