AMLI Deerfield: Luxury Apartment Living in Chicago’s North Shore

Aug 12th, 2015

As my 30 anniversary with AMLI Residential has come and gone, I am extremely grateful to have a job that I love. This was my first job out of college. I grew up with this company. When my first son was born (24 years ago!), they allowed me to work flex-time and be home with my three boys more than I was at the office, yet still have my career. And when I got involved with LUNGevity Foundation (the nation’s leading lung cancer research organization) six years ago after losing my best friend to lung cancer, AMLI was right alongside me supporting my efforts and this cause that means so much to me. It’s easy to see why I love my AMLI FAMLI, right?

This summer, AMLI will be opening a brand new luxury apartments in Deerfield, IL, my hometown, and I can’t wait! I work on the brochures, website, and other communications for AMLI’s communities across the country, but working on this project is special. I know this town, its people, the businesses that reside here, and I want them to know and appreciate AMLI and these new Deerfield apartments the way I do! I feel like I’m setting up my two best friends on a blind date, and I am 99 percent sure they will really like each other.

How do I begin to tell you about my favorite AMLI child? She’s amazing (with 3 boys, I’m going to call this one a girl)!  AMLI Deerfield will appeal to renters of all ages. Truly a multigenerational community. Surrounded by major employers like Walgreens, Discover, Takeda and Baxter, this is an ideal location for their employees’ new home. And we know there are many empty-nesters in Deerfield and the surrounding northern suburbs who want to downsize and live a maintenance-free, luxury lifestyle. AMLI Deerfield is perfect for them too. There are countless reasons anyone of any age will love living at AMLI Deerfield.

Lavish Amenities

Let’s start with the resort-style amenities. Residents of AMLI Deerfield will enjoy exclusive amenities that include a scenic courtyard with a beautiful swimming pool, outdoor fireplace and private grilling areas; fitness center with a separate yoga and Pilates studio; resident lounge with fireplace and kitchen; business center with coffee bar; golf simulator room; bike storage and repair room; and convenient garage parking. Talk about carefree living!

Impeccable Apartment Interiors

Now let’s discuss the gorgeous Deerfield apartments. AMLI Deerfield offers studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Some of the two-bedroom apartments have offices too. The designer interiors feature two gorgeous finish packages to choose from. Picture white wood shaker-style cabinetry with black honed granite countertops and marble backsplashes OR sleek espresso wood flat panel cabinets with white quartz countertops and glass tile backsplashes. Kitchens also boast stainless steel ENERGY STAR® appliances. All of this combined with wood style flooring, nine-foot ceilings, and elegant crown molding will make you feel like you’re living in a custom home. All of the apartments also have full-size washers and dryers, and most have built-in wine racks and beverage centers.

Live Green

I’m really proud of AMLI’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. AMLI Deerfield is targeting LEED Silver certification and offers smoke-free living inside and out. If a resident or their guest is non-compliant with our smoke-free policy, guess where they are required to make a donation? Donations for this and all of AMLI’s Breatheasy® smoke-free communities nationwide are sent to LUNGevity Foundation (my favorite charity).

Location, Location, Location

I think AMLI Deerfield’s location is perfect. It’s located just minutes from the Lake Cook and Deerfield Metra stations, downtown Deerfield, and Northbrook Court. And the Pace bus will stop right at our door if you don’t want to move your car from its garage space. AMLI Deerfield is also moments from the tollway and Edens expressway and is surrounded by unparalleled attractions that include Ravinia Festival, Chicago Botanic Garden, the shores of Lake Michigan, and numerous parks, forest preserves, and golf courses.

AMLI is an experienced, well-respected owner and management company with over 60 apartment communities coast to coast and exceptional service at the core of its operations. Whether it is our 48-hour service guarantee, AMLI PERKS, or one of our other signature resident programs, AMLI is committed to providing residents with a worry-free living experience, making living at AMLI Deerfield truly superior to anywhere else in the area.

And just as important, AMLI is a good neighbor. AMLI takes pride in its FAMLI Volunteer Program and makes it a priority to provide opportunities for its employees and residents to share their time and talents to help local charities and those less fortunate. I can’t wait to have our FAMLI volunteers become a part of the Deerfield community and show that side of our company culture. In fact, AMLI has been doing so the last four years by being a sponsor and having a team at LUNGevity’s Breathe Deep North Shore event in Deerfield.  I know they look forward to supporting other causes that mean a lot to the Deerfield community.

I hope those who are looking for a special place to rent their next apartment will come visit AMLI Deerfield and see what an incredible community it is, managed by the company that I love in the town where I grew up and chose to raise my family. I know you’ll love living with AMLI as much as I love working for them!
