Hines’ Oak Brook Commons Multifamily Reaches Leasing Milestone 

Hines’ One Oak Brook Commons, a new, luxury rental community, has surpassed the 50% leased milestone. The upscale 17-story, 250-unit apartment building is located at 2150 McDonald Dr. in downtown Oak Brook, IL and offers studio to three-bedroom penthouse floor plans. 

“We have been thrilled with the market’s reaction to One Oak Brook Commons. The unit finishes and community amenities have set a new standard in the area for luxury apartments,” said David Bach, managing director at Hines. “The building also offers direct walkability to Oakbrook Center’s premier dining and shopping, as well as easy access to top-tier golf courses, parks, polo fields, and employment centers.” 

The team responsible for bringing One Oak Brooks Commons to market is composed of the development team at Hines, management support from Willowick Residential, as well as leasing and marketing expertise from Luxury Living Chicago Realty.
