Kinzie Builders has started construction on 4th and Broadway, a new luxury rental townhome development in Libertyville, Ill. The project, which will bring seven three-story townhomes to the Chicago suburb, replaces a vacant commercial building at 234 N. 4th St. and is just a short walk from the village’s main shopping, dining and entertainment district.
“Rental townhomes strike the right balance for those who are in the market for the space and layout of a single-family home with the low maintenance of a traditional apartment, which is why many suburbs like Libertyville are seeing increased demand for this type of upscale community,” said Steve Spinell, principal of Kinzie Builders. “Similar properties we’ve built recently have been fully leased before completion, which speaks not only to the quality of our work, but also to the desire renters have for living in proximity to desirable suburban downtowns.”
Ranging from 1,144 to 1,662 square feet, the tri-level townhomes come with rear-loading two-car garages and offer 2-bed/1.5-bath, 2-bed/2.5-bath and 3-bed/2.5-bath floor plans. The homes include a lower level with a multi-purpose room, storage and access to the attached two-car garage; a main level open-concept layout with a kitchen, dining area, living room and powder room; and an upper level with two or three bedrooms, and one or two full baths. Each townhome will have a private deck accessed from the living area on the main level.
Upscale kitchen finishes will include large islands seating up to four, granite or quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and 42-inch upper cabinets. Primary baths will feature quartz countertops, double sinks and frameless glass showers. Each level will be enhanced with 9-foot ceilings, ample windows that maximize natural light, and wood flooring throughout the lower and main levels.
“Having recently opened our new offices here in Libertyville, we are well-aware of all the village has to offer, especially its vibrant downtown,” said Spinell. “In fact, Realtor.com just named Libertyville one of the top 11 family-friendly suburbs nationwide due to its dining, cultural attractions and outdoor recreation, as well as its top-rated schools. The townhomes at 4th and Broadway will be just a 10-minute walk from the heart of it all.”
The architect for the development is Libertyville-based Linden Group, and Kinzie Builders will employ more than 30 subcontractors during construction.
