The building’s rooftop amenity level includes a fitness center, great room with fireplace, outdoor barbecue area, coffee lounge, garden areas and other amenities – including views of the Chicago skyline - for building tenants to enjoy.

Construction of the residential tower of the 8000 North project began in late October 2020.  Construction crews are currently pouring the concrete for the 11th floor with anticipated completion of the final 12th floor by the end of February 2021.  Overall, the project is anticipated for completion in late 2021 or early 2022.  Over 265 interested people have requested pre-leasing information on apartment rentals in the building.  Construction financing for 8000 North residential tower was provided by Wintrust bank and is a joint partnership between Murphy Development and the Village. The project cost is expected to be nearly $70 million and will be a transformative project for Downtown Skokie, the Village and North Shore. See more information from the developer's website.
