Fort Sheridan Place Luxury Rentals ready for occupancy

Fort Sheridan Place Luxury Rentals has announced that fully renovated one-, two- and three-bedroom residences are now ready for occupancy.

More than 30 residences have been upgraded with granite countertops in the kitchens and bathrooms, black Frigidaire appliances, new carpeting, cherry stained wood cabinetry, and new windows. Additionally, the units offer individually controlled heat, central air conditioning, and a large private patio or balcony. A fully furnished designer model has just opened which features two spacious bedrooms, along with gracious dining and living rooms and a private patio.

The 634 Sheridan Road building is the first building to be renovated during FortSheridan Place Luxury Rental’s phased program. Within each of the three mid-rise buildings are five individual tiers, each with their own entry, elevator bank and laundry rooms on each floor. This unique “building-within-a-building” design creates a boutique feeling within the larger buildings.

“This distinctive feature helps to create a more intimate environment. With only 14 to 20 units per tier, residents can easily get to know their neighbors and enjoy a real sense of community,” according to Morningside Group president, David Strosberg.

The property’s common areas have also been extensively renovated with new elevator lobbies, elevator interiors, and corridor finishes. Each building will feature its own new fitness center fully equipped with cardiovascular machines, strength training equipment and flat screen televisions. .

Additionally, extensive work is currently being done outdoors which will enhance the exterior of the development. A lush professionally designed landscaping plan is being installed which includes mature trees and flower beds throughout the site, along with a brand new irrigation system to ensure the proper maintenance of the plantings.

Fort Sheridan Place Luxury Rentals will feature newly enhanced building facades, new roofing and resurfaced outdoor parking. All new lighting and fencing along Sheridan Road will complete the feel of the property. The exterior and landscaping work will be completed this fall.

Ultimately, the development will offer 252 completely renovated one-, two- and three-bedroom residences. Located on seven acres on Sheridan Road, Fort Sheridan Place Luxury Rentals represents the only luxury rental development in the fast growing Highwood downtown community.

Morningside Group is inviting neighbors and interested renters to tour the new designer model residence and renovated common areas Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 6p.m. and weekends between 10 a.m. to5p.m. Members of the Chamber of Commerce and city officials viewed the new residences at a special sneak preview party on Sept.10.

“We were thrilled to show the city officials and local business owners the fruits of our labor,” Strosberg noted. “There has rightfully been strong interest in the work we’ve been doing here, and I think that everyone who attended was very pleased. We’ve worked hard to create residences that everyone can be proud to call part of the Highwood community.”

Shelly Lurie, owner of Milestone Realty, praised the property improvements. “Morningside Group has really done a wonderful top to bottom renovation. I love the model … it has the granite countertops and cherry cabinets that people expect in luxury residences, while features like-new windows show the developer’s commitment to truly upgrading the property. I’ve seen a pent up demand for this quality of product, and I know that the exterior will be beautiful as well once the landscaping is completed.”

Strosberg, a resident of neighboring Highland Park, is an avid cyclist who took note of the expansive property’s ideal location and the potential of Highwood’s lively downtown during years of Sheridan Road bike rides.

“I have long been drawn to the natural beauty of this area with its proximity to Lake Michigan and close-knit community. I’ve watched the downtown grow to feature art galleries, theater and an influx of new restaurants that have joined the already notable restaurant scene. We are thrilled to be able to invest in this thriving community, and offer high quality luxury rental residences with excellent schools, easy access to the natural beauty of Lake Michigan and all of the offerings of downtown Highwood.”

“Fort Sheridan Place offers the very best rental opportunity on the north shore with luxury finishes and spacious floor plans at a great price,” Strosberg said about his newest development. “I believe that potential renters will be very pleased when they walk through our doors.
