CHICAGO, Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding ample space for a new construction development is anything but easy—especially in the heart and soul of a bustling city of a mere three million residents.  Leave it to the construction experts Foster Design Build, LLC, to discover a hidden gem—one of the few triangle-shaped properties in the city of Chicago.  Nestled on a lot of 5,400 square feet, 2661 North Lincoln Avenue is the future five-story home of a luxurious Lincoln Park all-in-one retail and residential building.

From ground to roof, and inception to completion, Foster Design Build will integrate state-of-the-art features and amenities in these lavish living quarters, located at the corner of Lincoln and Kenmore Avenues.  With a first floor reserved for retail space and a heated parking garage, the subsequent two floors will contain six condominium units, topped off with a posh two-story penthouse.  Foster Design Build takes pride in its service as an integral player of this monumental undertaking, expected to break ground this winter (weather permitting) with a 16 to 18 month construction cycle.  "We are excited to tackle the lot's unique geometry and incorporate remarkably sustainable materials for a one-of-a-kind design for the district," said Robert Berg, President of Foster Design Build.

Foster Design Build's blueprints for the 17,000 buildable square feet are fully equipped for a true urban oasis, featuring an astounding combination of grandeur, eco-friendly elements and top-notch technology.  With plans for clean, contemporary lines and a sleek interior design, this property will be coveted by residents and onlookers alike.  The building's 5,200 sq. ft. penthouse palace is designed with finer features in mind, including advanced and innovative green technology.  Striving to make each project greener than the last, Foster Design Build honors its philosophy to "tread lightly on the earth" with this development.  Featuring solar panel roofs and a genuine garden made of soil on the roof, the masterpiece will allow its owners to step out to a backyard with views of Kenmore Avenue's green row and the exquisite Chicago cityscape, for the best of both worlds.

Maintaining a commitment to accessibility, accountability and accuracy, the Foster Design Build team will analyze each step of the way by utilizing a monitoring system of eight live streaming web cameras that can access the project at all times and constantly updating its client on the progress of the project.  Foster Design Build will "design and build" the project from start to finish, including hiring the team of construction professionals necessary to complete the job, from masonry to interior design.

Succeeding the regal renovation of 5040 South Greenwood Avenue, the property directly next door to the home of President Barack Obama, Foster Design Build is no stranger to constructing ultimate extravagance.  Although the elite Kenwood neighborhood home posed significant obstacles (most notably 24-hour video surveillance from the United States Secret Service), Bob anticipates 2661 North Lincoln Avenue will present its own batch of challenges as well.  The complexity of the lot's triangle shape, careful craftsmanship and custom materials are essential priorities for the seasoned project manager.  Trademarked by unparalleled service and phenomenal results, the experts of Foster Design Build are poised to place yet another paramount project into their diverse portfolio.


A leading construction management and general contracting authority in Chicago, Foster Design Build, LLC is a team-based practice of intensive construction management that prioritizes client service and satisfaction.  Through a collaborative strategy, Foster Design Build assembles talented engineers, architects, interior designers and subcontractors necessary to complete each project, while managing and monitoring the entire process, from the initial meeting to the finished home.  Whether it's a luxury custom home, extensive historical restoration, kitchen remodel, or light commercial office building, Foster Design Build meticulously handles each and every detail in a timely, cost-effective and professional manner to produce results that always exceed expectations.
