Smith Capital Management and Middleton Partners selected Avison Young as the exclusive leasing agent for a high-end hotel-retail-restaurant development being planned for the western gateway to Lake Forest, Illinois.
The 8.5-acre site on the southeast corner of Saunders Road and Rt. 60 was purchased recently by a joint between Lake Forest-based Smith Capital Management, Inc. and Northbrook-based Middleton Partners.
The Amberley Woods development is being marketed toward high-end hotel, retail and restaurant brands, spas and related users. The site is in on prime land site, just one block from I-94, and offers strong visibility, local and transient traffic patterns and the potential to tap into the affluent population base in Lake Forest and surrounding North Shore communities.
The Avison Young team includes Principals Tim Henry and David Herbert; Vice President AG Hollis and Associate Marissa Rose.
