A month since we last checked in at Albion at Oak Park, and progress has been moving along well. The final touches are now underway at the 19-storey, mixed-use development by Albion Residential and HPA.

Having risen high atop Chicago's Oak Park Village, just west of the core, Albion at Oak Park is now a central part of the local skyline. At 265 units, the development will soon bring up to 400 residents to the area, Oak Park Village to benefit from the rise in foot traffic and urban vibrancy.

Moving down to street level, it is evident that it will not be long before the landscaping is complete. Connected to the rear to a large city park, and fronting onto the bustling Lake Street corridor, Albion at Oak Park will provide residents with the best of both worlds.

Viewed from afar, it is clear that Albion at Oak Park has now become a neighbourhood fixture. Furthering this perception, the imminent completion of the 6,500 sq. ft. retail space will help weave the development into the local streetscape.
