Moving Up & Out

August 8, 2014

More and more empty-nesters are moving to amenity-rich buildings that cater to their discriminating tastes and active lifestyles, but still in an urban hub rich with arts, culture and¬†entertainment – not to mention the lakefront. In this case. we’re not talking about Lake Shore Drive but Evanston. which seems to be ahead of the curve in anticipating what active¬†seniors want. Enter The Merion. Horizon Realty Group’s $20 million renovation of a historic Evanston building into 140 completely remodeled luxury apartments. Additional services and amenities include a theater, library, fitness center, three dining venues and an elegant two-story Crystal Ballroom and Lounge available for private parties. Apparently, retirement and luxury living can go hand in hand.

“The luxury home market is creeping out from the traditional centers of Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast. What’s defining that movement is a group of buyers less interested in being in a neighborhood defined as ‘luxury’ and more interested in a finely crafted home in a neighborhood with restaurants, shops, transportation and a diverse mix of people and homes.”
