New luxury property development offers buyers an urban lifestyle with a suburban address.
Co-developers Fifield Cos. and Carroll Properties have announced the opening of E2, Evanston’s first uber-luxury apartment towers. Located at Emerson Street and Maple Avenue, the 356-unit development also contains 12 rental townhouses. “With the delivery of E2, we have created a new gateway to dynamic downtown Evanston and elevated luxury rental living on Chicago’s North Shore,” said Randy Fifield, vice chair and principal at Chicago-based Fifield Cos. “This building fills a much needed demand in this market, giving suburban residents the best of what a sophisticated urban rental lifestyle has to offer.” Designed by FitzGerald Associates Architects, E2 consists of two buildings, a 16-story tower at 1881 Oak Ave. and a 14-story tower at 1890 Maple Ave. in downtown Evanston. The two buildings are connected by a four-story structure that includes three floors of parking and a fourth-floor amenity deck. Evanston-based Morgante Wilson Architects is responsible for all common area interior design work at E2. The building also contains 4,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. “The sheer range of product types will appeal to so many different renters, from young couples and graduate students to empty nesters and families, E2 will be able to support a diverse, multigenerational demographic,” says Fifield.
