Courthouse Square Apartments open in downtown Wheaton

First residents started moving into complex in May

WHEATON – Community and business leaders are welcoming the opening of the 149-unit Courthouse Square Apartments complex in downtown Wheaton.

"It's a terrific project, and I'm looking forward to having a lot of new neighbors in downtown Wheaton," Wheaton City Councilman John Rutledge said during a grand opening celebration Sept. 7 hosted by the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce.

The luxury apartment complex at 250 S. Naperville Road is located near the old courthouse building in downtown Wheaton. Courthouse Square's developer, Northfield-based Focus Development Inc., previously had constructed six condominium units inside the courthouse building and a 50-unit condominium building near the site.

The Courthouse Square complex, which offers one-, two- and three-bedroom units as well as studio apartments, is located near the Metra station in downtown Wheaton. Monthly rental prices start at $1,295 for a studio unit and $3,160 for a three-bedroom unit.

"We like doing transit-oriented projects," said Courtney Brower, development manager for Focus Development. "We thought this could be a great location for apartments."

The project got underway in 2015, and residents started moving into the complex at the end of May, Brower said. Building features include a heated outdoor swimming pool and a fitness center.

"We're really pleased to bring a condo-quality apartment building into downtown Wheaton to finish up this project," Focus Development CEO Tim Anderson said.

In addition to the Courthouse Square Apartments project, Airhart Construction has begun construction on its five-home Wesley Place development at the northwest corner of West and Wesley streets in downtown Wheaton.

Each home averages 2,800 square feet in size and features three bedrooms, as well as a two-car garage. Base prices start at $766,400.
