Forest Hill, another development of Austin Highlands, Inc., is already one-third sold and occupied. Austin Highlands began building multi-family communities in 1962 and throughout the 1960’s built both multi-family developments and single-family homes on the southwest side of Chicago. During the 1970’s the company built or converted hundreds of multi-family apartment units, including the Briargate Apartments in Chicago Ridge, The Briarcliff Apartments in Worth, and the Clareridge in Chicago Ridge. The company also completed numerous additional apartment buildings, single-family homes, and commercial properties during this period. Among the company’s more notable projects is the development and construction of Orchard Lakes town homes in Wood Dale, offering traditional design and a quiet neighborhood at a special community by the water.
