Lucien Lagrange Studio's One Winnetka multifamily project gets village okay

The Village of Winnetka has approved Lucien Lagrange Studio’s designs for and construction of One Winnetka in the northern suburb of Chicago. The five-story, high-end, multifamily project will be located adjacent to the Village of Winnetka’s train station in the downtown area at Elm Street and Lincoln Avenue.

“This has been a multi-year entitlement process,” said Lucien Lagrange, founding principal of Lucien Lagrange Studio. “Together with the developer, Springbank Capital Advisors, LLC, we were persistent in pushing the project through. It will bring both new residents and retail to the downtown area. We are excited to see our vision begin to manifest.”

The planned development, conceptualized by Lagrange and principal My-Nga Lam, is designed to provide a variety of lifestyle options including luxury apartments, condominiums and retail space. With a classic French-style, One Winnetka will offer 30,000 square feet of street level commercial space, 355 parking spaces, 36 apartments, 15 condos and seven townhome units.

Originally proposed five years ago, the project is now slated for completion at the close of 2020. The property will feature a limestone base and a mansard roof and be comprised of three buildings, two at five stories tall and the third four stories tall.

“As residents begin to consider downsizing and purchasing secondary homes in warmer destinations, many will still want a North Shore residence to call home and One Winnetka will provide just that,” said Lagrange.
