CA Ventures and Focus are getting started on a nine-story, 241-unit transit-oriented development in Evanston.

The Chicago-based developers broke ground last week on 811 Emerson Street, which is slated for completion in summer 2019, RE Journals reported.

The complex is near Northwestern University, as well as Metra’s Union Pacific North line and the Chicago Transit Authority’s Purple Line.

The developers paid $5.1 million for the property in October, according to Cook County records.

The development will have studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments ranging from 400 to 1,100 square feet. Amenities will include a 9,000-square-foot courtyard, a pool, a fitness center and 174 parking spaces.

A 7-Eleven that had been on the site will return once construction is completed, occupying a 3,300-square-foot retail space along Emerson.

The project was designed by bKL Architecture. Focus is serving as the general contractor. [RE Journals]  — John O’Brien
