EVANSTON, ILL. — Vermilion Development has received approval from Evanston’s City Council to build a 210,000-square-foot, 18-story office tower located at 605 Davis St. in Evanston. The Class A property will be the first high-rise office building in Evanston in 20 years, according to Vermilion. Solomon Cordwell Buenz is the architect for the project, which is slated for completion as early as 2022. John Clark and Bill Rolander of Newmark Knight Frank will market the property for lease. Plans call for 15 floors of office space with conference and fitness facilities, a tenant lounge and an outdoor terrace. The building’s ground floor will house two retail suites as well as a lobby and bike room. The top two floors will feature private balcony access.
