The brand new building under construction at the southwest corner of Lake Street and Lathrop Avenue offers upscale condos with one-story living, sleek interior finishes, and a vibrant lifestyle. But the biggest new housing trend residents will enjoy in RF is outside the home. The development is specifically designed to provide residents with as many amenities as possible. outdoor living space – and every house of RF brags of them private outdoor living areas.

“Outdoor living space is the hottest topic in condo design in Chicago’s downtown and suburban markets today,” says Cory Robertson, principal of Corwin Partners at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, the company marketing the property. “We’re not talking about the old 4ft by 8ft balcony with two lounge chairs from previous waves of construction. Buyers today are looking for real outdoor living spaces where they can cook a full meal in the sun, read a book in a hammock, eat at an outdoor dining table, or laugh with friends around a fire pit. . And RF houses are going to offer that.

Kyle Haste, Project Manager at Sedgwick Development, explains further: “We kept designing until every house in RF had the opportunity to truly live outside. We wanted it to be something never seen before in a condo living in River Forest. He notes that, in fact, every RF home will include a large North Deck spanning the full width of the living/dining room – adding another 250 square feet of entertaining space during most months of the year – plus a huge south terrace or private roof.

The demand for outdoor spaces is especially true in buildings where many potential buyers come from single-family homes. “Many single-family homeowners welcome a more hassle-free lifestyle and are willing to downsize to achieve it,” Cory adds. “But having to give up their favorite outdoor activities has often been the reason people are reluctant to make the switch. The outward orientation of RF gives these people everything they want.

A limited number of Premium 2nd Level Terrace Homes will provide homeowners with over 1000 square feet of south-facing uncovered space for large parties, landscaped planters, sunbathing areas, play areas and pet runs . Composite decking as well as gas, water and electricity are included, making the decking habitable from day one. “A condo with a huge ‘yard’ – but without the yard work or hassle – is what some people could only dream of, but that’s exactly what we have on the 2nd level,” says Cory.

RF penthouses include private elevator access from their home to the rooftop, located directly above. Each penthouse roof terrace includes a composite deck, gas, water and electricity, as well as expansive views of River Forest and St. Luke’s. Cory notes that as long as people come in quickly, “penthouse buyers can have the opportunity to design and build their own rooftop oasis.”

After a very successful pre-construction sales campaign, RF-Lake Street is currently offering a limited number of 2nd level patio homes and penthouses. Each of the single-storey houses will offer 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms plus an office area and two private terraces. Direct elevator access, lobby amenities and a prime location in the heart of River Forest make this an exceptional opportunity for those looking for hassle-free living. A parking space in the heated garage is included and additional parking spaces are also available. Price from $749,900 to $1,299,900. Deliveries are expected to begin Spring/Summer 2023.
