Building Evanston's Winthrop Club

Last Wednesday I joined a handful of other reporters in a top-to-bottom tour of Winthrop Properties‘ new high-rise, the Winthrop Club, located at 1570 Elmwood Ave in Evanston. We were greeted on the fifth-floor sundeck by Winthrop principals Bob Horner and Ibrahim Shihadeh, who started off the walk-through with an overview of the tower’s conception and construction.

Winthrop Club, 1570 Elmwood Ave, EvanstonDeliveries began at the 15-story, 96-unit high-rise this summer. The building is about 30 percent sold, with available one- to three-bedrooms ranging in price from the $290s to $1.48 million.

The tower, designed by FitzGerald Associates Architects, is on track to earn LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council. Check back later this week for a discussion about the Winthrop Club’s green features, as well as more footage and photos from inside the high-rise.

In the meantime, check out a lengthy writeup from the editor of the Chicago Architecture Blog, who was also present for the media tour.
