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 be a community of approximately 311 luxury rental apartments and 57,000 SF of retail space.

Interiors will be well-appointed, consistent with current Class-A residential standards such as plank style flooring, quartz or granite countertops and in-unit washer 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.
