High Street Residential, the residential subsidiary of Trammell Crow Company, completed Avidor Evanston, a 169-unit active-adult senior community in Evanston, Illinois. The 55+ community, which will safely welcome new residents this month, is managed by Allegro Management Company.
Avidor Evanston offers a mix of one- and two-bedroom rental units, some of which offer a den/home office bonus space. Select residences provide residents with unencumbered views of Lake Michigan and the city of Chicago, which is less than 12 miles from the property. All units boast high-end finishes, including upgraded lighting fixtures, stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, tiled backsplashes, spacious walk-in closets, in-unit washers/dryers, nine-foot ceilings and private balconies.
The impressive amenity collection at Avidor Evanston promotes an active lifestyle. Amenities include a hotel-like lobby, a bistro bar, a business center, an activity center and club room, a pet spa, a dog run, a state-of-the-art fitness center with a yoga studio, a theater room, a great room, a chef’s kitchen, a catering kitchen and a resort-style pool deck on the 18th level rooftop, complete with an outdoor kitchen, fire pits and a lawn for yard games. The building will additionally offer its residents on-site management, full time activities director, indoor climate-controlled parking, private storage lockers and a guest suite for resident visitors.
“Avidor Evanston is the third active-adult community that we have completed as part the Avidor brand in the Midwest,” said Mary Boehmler, senior associate of High Street Residential’s Midwest business unit. “The Avidor brand has reshaped how people think about 55-and-older communities. The amenities and activities are curated to encourage a dynamic lifestyle for our residents, while competitively priced units are designed with functionality in mind, which is important for many of our residents as they downsize from single-family homes.”
Avidor Evanston offers an array of activities and daily social engagements, which can be tailored to each residents’ personal preferences. Daily activity offerings include fitness and wellness classes, game and movie nights, cooking classes, community happy hours, engaging speakers, roof top BBQs overlooking Lake Michigan, among several other exciting programs.
“We are thrilled to provide the premier 55+ active adult community in Evanston”, said Maddie Scudiero, community director at Avidor. “Evanston is considered one of Illinois’ most desirable places to live. The area, still close to downtown Chicago, offers plenty of small-town charm—perfect for active adults that are ready to transition to an amenity-rich community in a bustling neighborhood. The engaging and active lifestyle that Avidor Evanston promotes affords residents with the ability to form new friendships and connections with their fellow Avidor neighbors.”
Avidor Evanston is uniquely situated in the downtown Evanston core and is within a three-minute walk to the Davis Metro transit station, allowing for under a 30-minute commute to downtown Chicago. In Evanston, residents will have access to a vibrant restaurant and nightlife scene, an eclectic retail mix of specialty shops and national retailers, a thriving cultural scene and a stable business community highlighted by strong representation in the education, technology and medical-related industries. As the commercial center of Chicago’s North Shore neighborhood, Evanston is home to more than 42,500 jobs with a flourishing start-up scene and innovative technology firms.
