Trulee Evanston offers an inspired and luxurious lifestyle with a decidedly urban vibe. Nestled between one of Evanston’s most traveled thoroughfares and the raised railroad tracks of the Union Pacific north line, the 0.77-acre, triangular-shaped site was transformed into a modern senior living community with panoramic views of Lake Michigan, downtown Evanston, and Chicago. The community is a block from downtown Evanston and short walk to Northwestern University. The Evanston Davis Street train station is close by for easy access to Chicago. Evanston’s unique beauty and character delights visitors and residents with businesses, boutique retail, entertainment, and the best restaurant concentration in the region outside of Chicago.
The new 9-story, 163-unit building is clad in three colors of brick and limestone, and the contemporary yet traditional-to-Evanston exterior is complemented by modern and transitional interior design and merchandising. The interior design took inspiration from Evanston’s vibrant art murals with pops of aubergine and sapphire for a stylish twist, as well as men’s wear / suiting to bring a play of textures and interest into the neutral tones. The level 2 amenities were energized by corridors of interlocking curves allowing for a dynamic flow of circulation. Several local artists were commissioned for custom installations, which include the mural at the Fitness Center, the tactile resin wall at the Memory Care activity room, visually rich paintings with metallic accents at the Memory Care activity room, Chicago landmark paintings through the level 2 commons corridor, digital prints through the level 2 resident corridor, and mixed media paintings at the Penthouse bar. Trulee Evanston achieved LEED V4.0 Silver certification by fostering a respect and stewardship for the environment.
