May 2, 2016

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 proud to announce that the recently completed Woodview Apartments has received LEED Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The new 248-unit luxury residential development, which is currently leasing, is situated at Deerfield Road and Interstate 94 in Deerfield, Illinois.

The development team carefully planned Woodview to include many green initiatives. Units include energy efficient appliances, energy efficient air conditioning and heat systems, extra insulation, and Fibrex® high performance windows, which better protect from extreme temperatures. The property is bicycle friendly with indoor storage and a bicycle repair lounge. For residents that drive electric vehicles, charging stations are available. Woodview is also located on the Pace Bus line with easy access to Metra Trains and shopping.

“On behalf of Conor Commercial and RPP, we are very proud of the LEED certification the Woodview Apartments project has earned,” remarked Molly McShane, Chief Investment Officer of Conor Commercial Real Estate. “As developers, we recognize our role as stewards to the environment and take every opportunity to protect our natural resources. We set out with a goal of obtaining LEED certification for Woodview Apartments, and I am happy to say that through careful planning and responsible construction, we have achieved that goal.” 

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.  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 last year with over 100 leases signed within the first 100 days.

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.

McShane Construction Company, a member of the USGBC, 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.
