Deerfield trustees unanimously approved AMLI Deerfield, a four-story, 240-unit building planned for six acres at 1525 Lake Cook Road. Construction is slated to begin in December, with an anticipated completion in mid-2015, according to an AMLI news release.

The project consists of a new four story luxury rental apartment for 240 residential units situated on six acre site at Wilmot Rd. and Lake Cook Rd. in Deerfield, Il.

“We’re excited to bring a new AMLI community to Deerfield and add to our growing Chicago area portfolio,” said Stephen Ross, executive vice president of development at AMLI Residential, in the news release. “Deerfield is home to many of the region’s largest employers and AMLI Deerfield will help these corporations in attracting and relocating young professionals.”

AMLI Deerfield will have a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedrooms units, the release said.
