This mixed-use complex on a former brownfield site is now a thriving center that features a retail and cinema pavilion, a hotel, and a residential tower.

Site Plan

Adjacent to Northwestern University and commuter train lines, this mixed-use complex creates a new, thriving center on a former brown-field site. ELS assisted the developer, the City of Evanston and Northwestern University in creating a masterplan, assembling land, and securing community support for the project which has been a significant catalyst for reinvigorating downtown Evanston. The program includes a retail and entertainment pavilion, office building, hotel, residential tower, and public garage.
