Interforum Holdings is proposing to build 513 residential units on the former site of a Solo Cup factory and headquarters in Highland Park.

The Northbrook-based developer is asking city officials to review its plans for the industrial site at 1700 Old Deerfield Road, according to the Highland Park News.

The site has been vacant since the manufacturer of the ubiquitous red party cup moved its factory out of state and its offices to Lake Forest more than a decade ago.

The Interforum plan would add 400 apartments in a four-story complex, 101 three-story townhomes, 12 single-family homes and a four-story parking garage.

City officials had mixed reactions to the plan this week, including concerns over the amount of open space, the possible loss of trees and the proximity of some of the units to nearby Ridge Road.

Interforum is also working on another large suburban complex, this one a 92-unit luxury apartment project in Warrenville.
