CHICAGO, IL – Last night, at a ceremony at New York’s Club 101, Multi-Housing News recognized Steve and Randy Fifield, heads of Chicago-based developer Fifield Cos. and Los Angeles-based Century West Partners, as the 2015 Excellence Awards Executives of the Year.
For more than 15 years, Randy and Steve have led Fifield Cos. to become one of Chicago’s most successful developers, having pioneered the expansion of urban neighborhoods with transit-oriented infill developments in both Chicago, and most recently in Southern California under the Century West Partners moniker.
“This award means the world to us,” said Steve Fifield, chairman and CEO of Fifield Cos. “The multifamily industry is booming, not just in Chicago, but across the country, as more people choose to rent – redefining the American Dream. To be acknowledged in such an active category is an honor. We wouldn’t be here without our fantastic team, and I’m so fortunate to have Randy by my side – the best partner, in business and in life.”
One of the multifamily industry’s most powerful couples, the Fifields are recognized as leaders in their fields in both the Chicago and Los Angeles real estate communities. In his role as chairman and CEO, and as co-founder of Century West Partners, Steve is responsible for the financial feasibility and construction of all new projects. Randy, vice chairman of Fifield Cos., leverages her 25 years of design and build experience to oversee the architecture, design, interiors, asset management and marketing of all Fifield projects in Chicago, as well as those from Century West Partners.
Combined, the Fifields’ real estate companies currently have 3,000 apartment units representing $1.5 billion in development in both the Chicago and Los Angeles areas, and have built more than more than 5,000 high-rise residential units in Chicago, L.A., Southeast Florida, Las Vegas and Waikiki.
Fifield Cos’ most recently completed development is E2, a 356-unit luxury rental project in downtown Evanston, Illinois, which marks Evanston’s first uber-luxury apartment development. Since opening in the spring of 2015, E2 has created a new gateway to dynamic downtown Evanston and filled a much-needed demand in the North Shore market. The building has surpassed 80-percent leased in just six months.
“It has always been our goal to redefine what luxury apartment living can be and make the Fifield name synonymous with a new standard in multi-family living,” said Randy Fifield.
“We’ve accomplished that, not only through a concerted effort to be on the cutting edge of apartment finishes and amenities, but through the aggressive recruitment of an extremely talented, diverse team, and a strong commitment to our community.”
