OAK LAWN, IL – A furnished and decorated model is now open for viewing at the Arbor Court condominiums in south suburban Oak Lawn. Located at 96th Street and 51st Avenue in a residential neighborhood near the town’s central business district, the five-story courtyard building includes 84 homes in 12 distinct floors plans. Arbor Court is a joint venture of Chicago-based builder and developer Morningside Group and Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.-based Mid-America Development Partners.
Five floor plans are sold out. Remaining residences at Arbor Court range in size from 1,338 square feet to 1,591 square feet, and have either two bedrooms and two baths, or two bedrooms and two baths plus study. Arbor Court is approximately 85 percent sold, with 13 homes currently available. List prices for the remaining homes, all of which include upgrades, range from $282,900 to $317,900.
Located on the fourth floor, the decorated model showcases Arbor Court’s 1,407-square-foot “Edison” floor plan. The home has two bedrooms and two baths, an open kitchen and great room, and a recessed corner balcony overlooking the building’s landscaped courtyard and the single-family homes along 96th Street.
Upon entering the model, visitors will find a generously sized, ceramic tile foyer with 9-foot ceilings and ample storage. On the right is the home’s second full bath and at the end of the hallway is the second bedroom, which has a west-facing window that allows afternoon sunlight to enter the foyer.
Turning to the left at the end of the entrance hall, visitors enter the Edison’s kitchen and great room, both of which feature hardwood flooring. The kitchen has 42-inch upper maple cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. A breakfast/entertainment bar separates the kitchen from the dining area and great room, which feature oversized windows on the south and west sides that fill the rooms with sunlight. In the right-hand corner, sliding glass doors open to the private balcony.
To the left of the great room is the Edison’s master bedroom, which includes a walk-in closet and master bath with his-and-hers double-bowl vanity, soaking tub and separate shower enclosure. The master bath has a ceramic tile floor, and both baths have Moen fixtures.
Standard features at Arbor Court include 9-foot ceilings in all living spaces, per plan; kitchens with furniture-quality cabinetry in a variety of styles and finishes; baths with furniture-quality vanities in a choice of styles and finishes, and cultured-marble vanity tops in a variety of colors; in-unit laundry facilities and individually controlled, gas forced-air heating and electric central air conditioning. All homes at Arbor Court are pre-wired for cable TV and high-speed Internet connections. Large, individual storage lockers are located on each floor of the building for added convenience.
A heated, indoor parking space is included with each home.
Arbor Court’s exterior features a brick-and-stone façade, and a Spanish style, red-tile roof. A stylish lobby with a cable-TV-monitored intercom to screen visitors and a resident-exclusive fitness center are on the main floor.
The building is located on a quiet residential street, and yet is a short walk to the popular stores and restaurants along downtown Oak Lawn’s main thoroughfare of 95th Street—including Freshline Grocery, Starbucks Coffee, Potbelly Sandwich Works, Jimmy John’s Gourmet Subs, Cold Stone Creamery, Hollywood Video and more. The Oak Lawn Public Library and the Oak Lawn Senior Center also are nearby, as are Chicago Ridge Mall and Stoney Creek Golf Course. A newly constructed Oak Lawn Metra train station is also a short walk from Arbor Court, with easy access to downtown Chicago.
“Part of the reason for Arbor Court’s popularity is that the building is bringing a new lifestyle experience to the suburb of Oak Lawn,” said David Strosberg, Morningside Group’s president and CEO. “People seem to appreciate that they can enjoy an urban lifestyle without leaving their town.”
A 25-year real estate veteran, Mr. Strosberg founded Morningside Group in 1993. In addition to its Arbor Court development, the company is also marketing new-construction condominiums at its Prairie Town Center property a few blocks away, near the intersection of 95th Street and Cook Avenue.
The Arbor Court model is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Closed Tuesdays. For a tour and more information, please visit the Arbor Court Info Center at 5239 West 95th Street or call (708) 857-2900.
