Morgante Wilson Adds Fifield’s Westerly to Interiors Portfolio

Evanston, IL-based Morgante Wilson Architects (MWA) has added to its growing portfolio of multifamily interiors work with the completion of Westerly, a recently opened luxury rental community in Chicago’s River West neighborhood. Tapped for the project by developer Fifield Cos., the MWA team designed and programmed all amenity spaces and common areas for the 11-story, 188-unit building.

Along with designing Westerly’s lobby and mailroom, first-floor leasing center, a third-floor suite of indoor and outdoor amenities, and a penthouse-level party room, MWA also selected the package of interior finishes featured in each residence. 
“In recent years we’ve found a niche parlaying our firm’s expertise in designing private residences and vacation homes into work with top multifamily developers on high-end rental buildings,” said MWA co-founder Elissa Morgante. “This is the third interiors project we’ve collaborated on with Fifield Cos., and each building is more beautiful than the last.”
