Responsible for the origination structure and closing of investments for AMLI in Chicago and other regions, Ross will provide insights into how the big deals were done for four new cutting edge multi-family projects including AMLI 900, AMLI River North, AMLI Evanston and AMLI Lofts, which have made available hundreds of luxury apartment units at a time when demand in the region for these kind of units has been growing.

The event begins with a 5 p.m. registration and networking reception in Roosevelt University’s second-floor Congress Lounge, and will be followed by a 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. presentation by Ross, who has led AMLI’s financing activities and previously was an officer with JMB Realty Corporation in Chicago and New York City.
