After 16 months of construction, District House is rapidly approaching completion. 24 of the 28 condominiums are now sold. The development’s glass curtain wall is installed and the distinctive exterior design elements — horizontal fins expressing a nod to the prairie school — are starting to take shape. Inside, the transformation is even more dramatic: the second floor is approaching substantial completion with the third floor not far behind. Interior improvements are also underway on the fourth and fifth floors. In the coming weeks the new owners of the second floor units will close on their homes and begin to move in.
“I remember meeting buyers in coffee shops with floor plans and renderings. Seeing the transformation from hot dog stand into the incredible design rising over Lake Street has been very rewarding,” said Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty broker Frank Vihtelic, who has been selling the project for nearly two years. “It took a lot of faith for buyers to sign on before they could see the finished product. The development and design teams truly set a new bar for residential living in Oak Park.”
There is still time to find a home at District House. The four remaining residences offer either quick closes or a few extra months to get current affairs in order. Offerings include a home with an expansive private outdoor green space and a penthouse unit with soaring 14′ ceilings. Frank Vihtelic added, “If you think the project looks great on paper, come take a look in person. You will not be disappointed.” To see for yourself, visit the sales center at 717 Lake Street, and meet a sales representative to take a guided tour of the available homes. The sales center is open daily from 1:00-6:00 PM, closed Thursdays.
