Peter Brennan
CHICAGO, IL – Hinsdale, Ill.-based Foxford Communities will hold a grand opening on Saturday July 30 and Sunday July 31 from 10 am – 4 pm to debut its decorated model of the newly designed townhomes in phase three of Somerset Townhomes, a community of 39 upscale townhomes along the lakefront in downtown Lake Zurich, Ill.

Homebuyers who close on a townhome by September 30, 2016 will get a Sea-Doo Spark 2up WaveRunner.

Located on West Main Street between Lakeview Place and Old Rand, Somerset Townhomes provides a maintenance-free, lakeside lifestyle within walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops in downtown Lake Zurich. 

The first two phases of the community, which included 27 homes, are now completely sold out. Phase three will include 12 townhomes all with direct frontage on Breezewald Park and amazing views of Lake Zurich itself, completing the 39 luxury townhomes planned for the Somerset Townhomes community.

“Building in phases has given us the opportunity to listen to our buyers and refine our floor plans to provide additional features that will continue to exceed buyers’ expectations,” said Peter Brennan, president of Foxford Communities.

“The newly decorated model home will showcase a refreshed spacious interior with a flexible layout and high-end finishes. However, the breathtaking views of Lake Zurich will be the ultimate showstopper in these homes.”

The Summit at Fritz Farm in Lexington, KY Expands Collection of Fashion-Forward Retail Offerings with Addition of Local Boutique Morton James

Halie Rogers
LEXINGTON, KY — Morton James, an upscale boutique offering bohemian-chic clothing and accessories for women, is the newest addition to The Summit at Fritz Farm’s list of notable retailers.

Morton James chose The Summit at Fritz Farm, located in Lexington, Kentucky, for its second location to cater to its growing audience. The $156 million, mixed-use development will open in March 2017.

“Morton James provides edgy, casual-chic apparel that is unique in Lexington, and will complement the other fashion-forward retailers we have signed at The Summit at Fritz Farm,” said Lindsay Bayer-Shipp, retail brand strategist for Bayer Properties. 

“At The Summit at Fritz Farm, we have curated a collection of national brands and local and regional boutiques that will appeal to all of our trend-setting guests.”    

Halie Rogers founded Morton James in 2013 to serve Lexington’s shoppers who value both style and quality. 

The store carries clothing and accessories from top fashion lines including Show Me Your Mumu, Generation Love, Bella Dahl, For Love and Lemons and a wide variety of designer denim such as J. Brand, Citizens of Humanity and AG. Morton James’ flagship location is located in the Chevy Chase district in Lexington.

 “Since our flagship location is across town, our new store at The Summit at Fritz Farm will allow us to better serve our Lexington fans, as well as reach a broader regional audience,” Rogers said. 

“The Summit at Fritz Farm has an impressive list of tenants so far, and the addition of local boutiques will create a cool, authentic atmosphere.”

Bayer Properties is integrating local tenants like Morton James into its retail leasing strategy to further celebrate Lexington’s heritage. 

The Summit at Fritz Farm is distinctly Lexington, which is evident from its “farm chic-inspired” landscaping from acclaimed local garden designer Jon Carloftis and local food concepts like Honeywood from famed restauranteur Ouita Michel.

The Summit at Fritz Farm will be a regional shopping destination that is the first of its kind in the market. 

Featuring a best-in-class tenant lineup, The Summit at Fritz Farm will include Bonobos, J. McLaughlin, Brooks Brothers and Kendra Scott, with additional stores to be announced in the upcoming months. The Summit at Fritz Farm will also serve as a gathering spot for the community, and offer a series of signature events and public spaces designed to offer an authentic sense of place.
