Luxury apartment complex opens near Oakbrook Terrace
Hundreds of high-end apartments are available in a new building near Oakbrook Terrace that was constructed by a developer pursuing a similar project in Warrenville.
Northfield-based Interforum Holdings recently celebrated the grand opening of Lakeside Village of Oak Brook. The 314-unit luxury apartment complex is within a mixed-use development off Butterfield Road, just east of where it splits from 22nd Street.
Jason Wilkins, community manager for Lakeside Village, says the roughly 500,000-square-foot building provides a rental option for empty nesters, millennials and professionals working in Oak Brook and other nearby communities.
"This is a true resort at home," Wilkins said. "You have everything from a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week door staff that filters into luxury services and products not really seen in the market today that renters truly deserve."
Construction took two years to complete on the roughly 6-acre site in Oak Brook Lakes, which is being developed by Royce Realty and Management Corp.
Lakeside Village started accepting tenants several months ago and has since leased more than 40 units.
"We're ahead of projections with demand coming from everything from reverse commuters to empty nesters looking to downsize," Wilkins said.
He said the biggest selling point for Lakeside Village is its amenities.
The apartment building includes a 24-hour fitness center, a private yoga studio, dedicated party rooms, a private conference room, game rooms and a saltwater swimming pool with color-changing LED lights.
Other features include a playground, a golf putting green, a bocce ball court and a running trail around the building. For tenants with pets, there's a dog walk and a pet washing station.
The building also has indoor parking, concierge service, a doorman and on-site management.
"The design by the ownership was very simple," Wilkins said. "They wanted you to come home and not want to leave. They wanted to create a resort that renters deserve."
The one- to three-bedroom apartments each have kitchens with modern cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. In addition, every home has a full-size washer and dryer and a private patio or balcony.
Rent for the apartments range from $1,910 a month for a one-bedroom to roughly $3,100 a month for a three-bedroom.
While Lakeside Village caters to residents wanting to live on the east side of DuPage, Interforum Holdings is doing another project on the west side of the county.
Site work has started on the Cantera Riverview West development in Warrenville. The roughly 32-acre site is along the north side of Ferry Road and immediately east of the West Branch of the DuPage River.
The $89.2 million project will include 60 three-story townhouses, a four-story building with 364 upscale apartments, and more than 35,000 square feet of commercial, retail and restaurant space.
