Co-Developers Conor Commercial Real Estate and Ravine Park Partners Announce Grand Opening of Woodview Apartments in Deerfield, Illinois

September 21, 2015

The co-development team of Conor Commercial Real Estate, a national real estate development firm and a member of The McShane Companies, and Ravine Park Partners (RPP), a Jeff Annenberg and Greg Moyer company, is pleased to announce the highly-anticipated grand opening of Woodview Apartments. The new 248-unit luxury residential development is situated at Deerfield Road and Interstate 94 in Deerfield, Illinois, and is accessed via Parkway North Boulevard by both Deerfield Road and Saunders Road. The amenity-rich multi-family property is located within minutes of downtown Deerfield, the Metra Station and an array of nearby retail, restaurants and businesses. Move-in opportunities began in May with over 100 leases signed within the first 100 days.

The four-story complex offers a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units.  Each residence incorporates upscale finishes and appliances including quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, plank flooring, in-unit washers and dryers, numerous private balcony and patio spaces and high-end windows for quiet living. 

Resident parking is located within a central core structured parking deck that supports 387 vehicles.  This ‘wrap’ design allows residents to exit on to their floor and eliminates the parking structure’s visibility while enhancing the aesthetics of this contemporary Class A residential property.  Additional on-site parking is provided for 31 vehicles. 

An integrated two-story community clubhouse offers numerous tenant amenities including a state-of-the-art fitness center, iLounge, coffee bar and multi-media room, demonstration kitchen and a private lounge complete with a shuffle board and pool table. 

In addition to indoor amenities, Woodview Apartments boasts well-appointed outdoor spaces such as a resort-style swimming pool and hot tub, outdoor kitchen with dining and seating areas, fire pits, bike storage and a repair shop. Residents can enjoy elegantly landscaped courtyards together with miles of adjacent jogging paths and bike trails.  The development also features an indoor pet washing station and a secured dog park, as well as a car wash center and electric car charging.

“On behalf of Conor Commercial and RPP, we are pleased to mark the grand opening of the Woodview Apartments,” remarked Molly McShane, Chief Investment Officer of Conor Commercial Real Estate.  “We are confident that the residents of Deerfield and nearby communities will benefit from this exceptional development by offering a sophisticated rental environment incorporating features of urban living while maintaining the serenity and recreational opportunities of its suburban location.” 

Greg Moyer of RPP added, “Deerfield offers the important combination of highly-regarded schools, abundant recreational opportunities, and convenient access to Downtown Chicago, the I-294 Tollway and to the Metra for easy transit to the City.  Due to these locational advantages, we are attracting and leasing to millennials, baby boomers, and everyone in between. Woodview Apartments can truly be a home for all age groups.”

McShane Construction Company served as general contractor for the project while HPA Architecture provided the comprehensive architectural services for this luxury residential development.  Laramar Management Services, LLC, a subsidiary of The Laramar Group, is serving as the exclusive management company charged with overseeing the property’s leasing and management activities.

“We’re excited to help introduce a property that exceeds expectations from the growing renter demand for suburban core living in Deerfield,” said Steve Boyack, Laramar Senior Vice President of Asset Management. “Conor Commercial Real Estate and Ravine Park Partners have trusted our extensive knowledge and experience in the market, and Woodview Apartments’ residents will be pleased with the levels of modern design and attention to detail that has been delivered.”
