Home construction in North Shore on the rise to meet demand

  • New single-family construction is planned for a trio of Lake Forest subdivisions this summer.

  • Builders are focusing on different types of for-sale product to attract younger buyers.

  • The single-family homes part of this development are considered "maintenance free."

Single-family construction activity within the North Shore market of Lake Forest is said to be at the highest levels in several years. A recently approved project looks to increase the city’s inventory of newly built for-sale inventory.

Northfield-based Focus Development recently received final approval for a community that will consist of 12 “maintenance-free” single-family homes and 42 condos, along with 111 rental units.
