The mid-October weather set the stage marvelously.
The aroma of barbequed goodness and other mouthwatering delicacies wafted through the air, which was the absolute perfect compliment to the way the afternoon sun illuminated the red carpet outside the leasing center.
Dozens of people gathered in preparation outside the building as the ribbon cutting ceremony began.
One week ago today, The Atworth at Mellody Farm celebrated something pretty spectacular. On Oct. 18, more than 100 people gathered together to share a part of a grand opening to remember in Vernon Hills.
The Atworth at Mellody Farm: Everything in Balance
Kind words were shared by representatives from Atlantic Realty Partners and Focus Development, but also by Vernon Hills Mayor Roger Byrne, who said he is genuinely thrilled to see The Atworth join the Mellody Farm community.
“(A project like The Atworth) was a long time coming and I’m glad it’s here,” he said, calling it a “great project” for the community.
With that, the beautiful Village of Vernon Hills ribbon was cut and the party really began.
Lulled by the musical brilliance of Ethan Keller, guests feasted on selections from various stations put together by City Barbeque, including a Macaroni & Cheese bar and “walking” brisket tacos, all in the common area known as The Conservatory.
The amenity space features an assortment of comfy couches and lounge spaces, a fireplace, and a Starbucks brewing station that provides complimentary coffee to residents every day of the year.
Outside were dessert stations, including a caramel apple bar and enough s’mores fixings to satisfy even the most hungry sweet tooth, all in the area known as The Courtyard.
The outdoor space features cozy cabanas, welcoming fire pits, and a resort-like pool complete with hammocks disguised as lounge chairs.
The event was a coming together to celebrate something pretty great, and the night itself could not have turned out better.
While the grand opening is now in the past, the celebration continues by way of some pretty spectacular grand opening specials.
