For Immediate Release

Construction is underway at Ravinia Crossing. Imperial Realty has broken ground on its mixed use project at 555 Roger Williams Avenue.  The mixed use development designed by Fitzgerald Associates will have 18 two bedroom room units and 12 one bedroom units. Five of those units will be affordable. The project also will contain over 5000 square feet of retail space, and have 51 parking spaces. Construction began on October 25 and the developer expects to deliver the units and retail spaces in early fall of 2020.  “We are thrilled to have this project move forward and hope it will invigorate the Ravinia District which has been an important part of the quality of life for Highland Park residents,” said Alfred Klairmont, a life long resident of Highland Park and president of Imperial at the groundbreaking event. Imperial Realty was founded in 1956 and has significant holdings in Highland Park.
