Now branded "The Link Evanston" the tower will offer apartments ranging from 386 square foot studios to 1,051 square foot three bedroom units and, with those smallish unit sizes, the developers are placing a lot of emphasis on the building's amenities.

The leasing office is expected to open soon at 900 Church St. in the 909 Davis office building.
