Somerset Development has completed the purchase of the 150 acre Lakewood Center Campus aka former AT&T Campus just north of the I-90 Jane Addams Memorial Tollway. Somerset’s plans for Bell Works will transform the vacant campus into a ‘Metroburb’— described as a self-contained urban core community of multifamily housing, businesses and entertainment venues in suburbia. Somerset will create an exciting, walk able downtown-style centerpiece for the Village, complete with 1.2 million square feet of office space, 60,000 square feet of conference facilities, storage and amenities, and 60,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space. Somerset plans to sell some of the land adjacent to the main AT&T office building to another developer for the construction of 380 multifamily residential units and 170 townhouses.
