Focus Feature: Enhancing Community One Development at a Time
At Focus we understand the importance of community. Understanding how people will engage with our work when we’re done is where we start. Buildings aren’t self-contained; they live in existing environments that touch people daily. At the intersection of individual and shared space is Focus’ commitment to positively shape experience and encourage community. With every project we take on, we put an emphasis on strengthening the community we’re contributing too.
Construction progresses at the Link Evanston.
The Focus construction team continues to make progress as construction continues at the Link Evanston. Teams have secured the structure of floors 1 -3 and finished erecting the steel columns and beams, including all for the detail work required for the steel on level 4. In addition, teams began pouring the topping slab for the future amenity deck.
In the coming weeks, teams will begin erecting precast plank for Level 4 and will install grout, rebar ad conduit lines starting on the East side, moving through to the West side of the building. Once the 4th floor in complete, teams will continue in the same fashion upwards through the additional floors.

In partnership with the City of Chicago and Operation Help a Hero, Focus team members collected goods throughout the month of June with the goal to provide homeless veterans with the essential items they need as they transition from shelters or transitional housing to permanent housing.
Teams at Kelmscott Park celebrate another big milestone onsite with the topping off of the first condominium building.
