Peak Properties is adding two properties near Northwestern University to its student housing management portfolio

Peak Properties Adds 44 Units to Student Housing Management Portfolio

Peak Properties, LLC has added 44 units to its growing student housing property management portfolio, along with three commercial units. Led by Mike Zucker, founder and managing partner of Peak Properties, the team has been tapped to manage and lease two Evanston, IL properties steps from Northwestern’s campus.  

2146 Sherman Ave. is a three-story, 11-unit property, while 722 Clark St. is comprised of 33 studio apartments and three commercial spaces. 

“Walk-to-campus student housing is here to stay no matter if it is an A, B, or C product, as there is a price point for all students,” said Zucker. “We believe we have a great understanding of what it takes to make any building attractive to those seeking quality housing in a main location. We look forward to maintaining, improving, and expanding upon these exceptional student options.”
