Oak Park, Ill.—Vantage Oak Park, a 21-story high-rise, has welcomed its first residents. Developed by a team consisting of Atlanta-based Wood Partners, Chicago-based Golub & Co. and the Village of Oak Park, the new luxury apartment tower is now the tallest building in this Chicago suburb.
“Oak Park offers residents a high quality of life in one the country’s most desirable suburbs along with easy access to Chicago,” said Oak Park Mayor Anan Abu-Taleb. “Vantage brings the lifestyle of a downtown high-rise to the thriving local dining, shopping and cultural scene of Oak Park.”
“We’re thrilled to become part of the vibrant community of Oak Park with the opening of Vantage,” added Michael Newman, president & CEO of Golub & Co. “The livability of Oak Park’s downtown will be enhanced by the addition of residences that fit the needs of Millennials, young families and empty nesters alike, all of whom are looking for homes offering both convenience and luxury.”
Located at at 150 Forest Ave., the 270-unit community was designed by the Chicago office of Gensler to take advantage of the views over Oak Park through floor-to-ceiling windows. Residents can choose from studio, one- and two-bedroom units, which feature plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and in-unit washer and dryer sets.
Shared amenities include a rooftop terrace with grills and fire pit, a fitness center, lounge, clubroom, business center and conference room. In addition, residents will benefit from the 24-hour, self-service package pickup, a smartphone video intercom system, as well as a self-service pet wash.
“When envisioning Vantage Oak Park, we wanted to create a luxurious home for our future residents that encourages a sense of community and enhances our residents’ living experience,” said Wood Partners Director Clay Iman. “We’re pleased the combination of Vantage’s exceptional location and our whole team’s collaborative effort has resulted in a unique and beautiful asset that fully immerses residents in the culture of Oak Park.”
