Pre-Leasing Takes Flight at New Wingspan Project in Plainfield

Wingspan Development Group has gotten pre-leasing underway for Sixteen30, its $60-million, 284-unit garden-style luxury rental community in Plainfield, IL, about 35 miles southwest of Chicago. The community is expected to welcome its first move-ins this summer.

Located at 14750 S. Wallin Dr. in Plainfield, Sixteen30 features eight buildings with neo-farmhouse-style exteriors arranged around a central 7,500-square-foot private clubhouse, complete with a great room, resort-style pool, fitness center, bocce court and other luxe amenities. 

“The pandemic has only proven the strength of the Class A suburban apartment market, as people continue to seek the space, flexible lifestyle, on-site amenities and convenient transit options that come with some of the newest rental communities near suburban downtowns,” said Chris Coleman, VP of development for Wingspan. “Our developments in other Chicago suburbs are leasing quickly, and based on the response we’ve seen so far, Sixteen30 is on a similar track.”
