Focus and its partners Atlantic Residential and Centennial are excited to be repositioning a portion of Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills, IL into a mixed-use development. The Domaine at Hawthorn Row will include 311 luxury rental apartments and 57,000 SF of retail space. The future development is located at the heart of Vernon Hills’ retail corridor and will benefit from a high level of economic activity. The future tenants will be within walking distance of Class-A retailers on site as well as across the street.
A luxury community at the center of it all, the Domaine will offer best-in-class amenities in a walkable environment. Featuring a mix of modern rental units ranging from studio apartments to 3-bedroom residences the Domaine will exceed expectations for suburban rental communities, benefiting from the added space of the suburbs while enjoying the walkability of an urban environment. Well-appointment interiors will elevate the comforts of the home and meet the needs of the modern renter. Ranging in size from 600 – 1,330 SF, apartment interiors will be well-appointed, featuring 9-foot ceilings, plank style flooring, quartz countertops, tile back splashes, and in-unit washers and dryers. Units will also address the recent shift in remote-working trends and will offer a work-from-home area with a built-in desk.
The community will also feature a superior amenity package including a double-height lounge, private dining room with parlor, game room, two-story gym, pet spa, and outdoor terrace with swimming pool, sundeck and grilling stations.
The mixed-use development at Hawthorn Row brings a unique, urban environment to what would otherwise be a conventional mall. Tenants and community members alike will experience new energy in their community as a result of the combination of outdoor dining, pedestrian interaction, and outdoor plazas. Additionally, through true public-private partnership with the Village of Vernon Hills, Focus and it’s partners are able to aid in the revitalization of an important economic engine for the community. Providing important activity and future success for the mall and community alike.
