Groundbreaking at Evanston’s E2 Apartments

Representatives from Fifield Companies, Carroll Properties, Northwestern Mutual, FitzGerald Associates Architects and McHugh Construction gathered on October 8th, 2013 to ceremonially break ground on the new E2 Apartments development on a full-block site at Emerson Street and Maple Avenue near downtown Evanston.
Designed by FitzGerald, the development’s two towers will stand 16 and 14 stories and will be connected by a four-story structure with parking and rooftop amenities. The two towers will include a total of 356 luxury rentals in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts, twelve townhomes along Emerson Street, and about 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Finishes are designed to appeal to the savviest consumers, with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and high-end lighting and plumbing fixtures. Bluetooth audio systems and electronic access control are also planned for each unit. Building amenities will include a sports court, fitness center, theater and lounge, business center, coffee bar, and outdoor pool and grill area.
