About 1657 Shermer Road

Cushman & Wakefield has been retained by Quarterra (“The Sponsor”) as the exclusive advisors to arrange $56.1M in Limited Partner (“LP”) equity for 1657 North Shermer Road (“The Project”) located in Northbrook, Illinois. The 318-unit, 5-story Texas wrap multifamily development will be downtown Northbrook’s first Class A rental community and only transit-oriented development (TOD) to date. The 284,388 NRSF Project will feature a series of courtyards including a large pool deck with grilling stations, native landscaping, and large outdoor patios for ground level units. The project is fully designed and entitled. Construction is expected to commence in Q4 2024 with completion in Q3 2026.

The 10.4-acre site is master planned into three areas: 7.2 acres for Sponsor’s 318-home multifamily building, 1.5 acres for Sponsor’s 6,500 SF retail outparcel, and 1.7 acres for a 48-unit supportive housing building. The Sponsor is purchasing the supportive care land as part of the overall land purchase and will immediately donate it to local supportive housing developer, Housing Opportunity Development Corporation (HODC). The supportive housing component is not a part of the opportunity, but adheres to Northbrook’s Inclusionary Housing Ordinance required of the overall development. The 6,500 SF retail pad will be constructed as a shell with the intention of leasing the space to a high-end destination restaurant user or comparable use. The sponsor has already received several LOIs from vetted groups for the retail space. The community will have 477 parking stalls for a ratio of 1.5 stalls per home. Most of the parking is within the conditioned parking garage, with approximately 68 surface stalls flanking the road that circles the site. The Northbrook Metra train station is 1,500 feet north of the site, which provides a direct and easy commute to downtown Chicago.

This Project presents a rare investment opportunity in the highly affluent North Shore sub-market where high-density multifamily projects were historically pushed to the northeast section of downtown. This optimal location gives close proximity to Metra, parks, restaurants, shopping, and high-end single-family communities in Chicago’s North Shore.
