Peak Realty Tapped to Manage Three New Apartment Properties

Peak Realty Chicago (PRC), the sister company of Peak Properties, has been tapped to lease up three new apartment buildings in Chicago’s River North, Wicker Park and Uptown neighborhoods.  

The assignments add more than 100 premium apartments to the boutique brokerage firm’s portfolio. The properties include 943 N. Crosby, Western Lofts at 1741 N. Western and the under-construction 4501 N. Sheridan Rd. 

For 4501 N. Sheridan, PRC will commence the branding efforts internally in the next 30 days. PRC will run the branding/marketing and lease-up components as well as the stabilized leasing of the residential component upon lease-up. Peak Properties, owned by Mike Zucker, will manage both the residential and commercial components in the new building. 

“Our team is steeped in the neighborhood markets harvesting data and applying it on a block-by-block level,” said Shane Rachman, president of PRC.
