1717 Ridge



1717 Ridge

Seventeen17 is a 175-unit apartment development located in downtown Evanston, Illinois.   Located two blocks from both the Metra and CTA “L” stations, 1717 offers the ideal blend of open, modern design, sleek architecture and world-class amenities in a perfect location. The eight-story building totals 150,459 net rentable square feet and includes a two-story subterranean parking structure containing 196 spaces.

The project was designed with a mix of units that appeals to a broad array of resident profiles who want the Suburban-Urban Lifestyle provided by Evanston – urban studios for young singles, one bedroom flats for professional singles and young couples, two bedrooms for couples and roommates, and three bedrooms for families in transition.

Focus acted as developer along with our partners Atlantic Realty partners and general contractor. The partnership sold the property in 2013 for a record-setting sales price.
