Skokie, Illinois

We designed the mixed-use Vista Towers with a focus on lifestyle, amenities, and comfort. We created a dramatic entry by obtusely angling the intersection of the two buildings and broke up the massing with recessed, accessible green spaces. The design lends additional square footage to the residential units located on the upper floors. Residential and commercial parking spaces are completely hidden from view by integrating a parking structure with three above-ground and two below-ground levels.



  • 2 15-story towers

  • 242 units

  • 16 retail spaces

  • 286 parking spaces
