The 8000 North project is in fact moving forward.  The exterior completion of the parking garage for the 8000 North project was completed in late April.  The interior work which consists of the mechanical, electric, and plumbing for the garage is anticipated to continue through the end of September.  The developers of the project did experience a delay in the construction of the residential building due to supply chain issues and the economic impacts due to COVID-19.  Interest in this landmark luxury mixed-use rental residential building is very strong as over 200 potential residents have expressed interest in the 153 unit property.

The current national uncertainty over COVID-19 is making it necessary to extend the timeline for constructing the 8000 North development at Oakton Street at Lincoln Avenue in Skokie. The Village has been informed by the developer that while construction work on the garage portion of the building will continue through September 2020, the construction timeline for the remainder of the project will be extended. Due to the timeline extension, it is necessary to remove the large crane that has been in place on the site.

The 8000 North development team remains committed to this project that will bring 153 luxury residential rental units and new retail space to Downtown Skokie, both of which will be important components of the community’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Project updates will be posted at www.8000north.com. The 8000 North team looks forward to the better days that are ahead and wishes the Skokie community all of the best during this uncertain time.
