I’m not big on Realtor society gossip and luncheon recaps, so I normally skip over Agent X’s “Agent About Town” writeups in Chicago Agent Magazine. This nugget from this week’s column caught my eye, though:
Apparently Related Midwest has taken over Winthrop Club in Evanston, and they’re planning to expand the amenities floor. Related Midwest is also going forward with 500 apartments on the land The Peshtigo was on, but plan to change the name. Good thing because the old one was too fishy.
The Ralph Johnson-designed tower was to be located on Peshtigo Court; nevertheless, “The Peshtigo” was one hell of an ill-advised name, especially in a city with its own history of fires.
I’ll have to check into this Winthrop Club news. From what I remember, the building’s amenity package wasn’t bad but lacked any sort of visual flair. I don’t know what Related could add to make it better, but I’ll try to find out.
