Murphy Development Group’s luxury apartment development Highpoint at 8000 North kicked off leasing and welcomes its first residents. Luxury Living Chicago Realty serves as the exclusive marketing and leasing provider while Lincoln Property Company will provide property management services for Skokie's premier residential rental building. 


“Working closely with the Village of Skokie, we are excited for residents and prospective renters to experience Highpoint at 8000 North,” said Chris Horney, managing director of Murphy Development Group. “Murphy Development Group is proud to bring a luxury residential building with architectural significance to Skokie.”


Located in downtown Skokie at 8000 Lincoln Ave., Highpoint at 8000 North features a unique juxtaposition of esteemed traditional architecture from Lucien Lagrange with contemporary natural light-filled interiors that are luxuriously appointed. Incoming residents will experience metropolitan elegance in a convenient downtown Skokie location while enjoying excellent shared amenities which include a rooftop deck with grilling area, fitness center, designer lounges for entertaining throughout the property and a dog run and pet wash.


“​​The design of Highpoint was centered on bringing a sense of urban sophistication to this vital intersection of the city,” said Lucien Lagrange. “The fundamental decision to move the parking from underneath the residential tower allowed the building to engage the ground level and create opportunities for pedestrian oriented retail, a generous public courtyard, open air markets and an elegant sense of entry for the residents. The facade evokes a sense of permanence and security. They are punctuated by orderly residential windows and traditional detailing throughout that is executed with a modern touch. The consistent use of color at the building’s rounded corners, retail awnings and the roof level crown add a vibrant contribution to the new image of Skokie.”


First move-ins are already underway. The 153-unit, 12-story luxury apartment building offers studios starting at $1,750, one-bedrooms starting at $2,095, two-bedrooms starting at $2,950 and three-bedroom units starting at $4,395. Common amenities include a rooftop deck, fitness center, coffee lounge, business center, game room and more. 


“Demand for a luxury apartment product similar to what you would see in downtown Chicago has continued to grow in the suburbs. Highpoint at 8000 North is meeting demand with its rooftop views, excellent location and luxury finishes designed for today’s modern renter,” said Aaron Galvin, CEO & Founder of Luxury Living Chicago Realty, the brokerage firm exclusively marketing and leasing the property.  


This project is being developed as a public-private partnership with the Village of Skokie.
