The community of Winthrop is a sprawling, family-friendly, community centric development located in Riverview (bordering Watson Rd, Bloomingdale Ave. and Providence Rd.) Winthrop was founded by John and Kay Sullivan who continue to develop the 148-acre property.

Currently, the Sullivans are in the process of constructing Building 10 which faces Bloomingdale Ave. It is located adjacent to the Barn at Winthrop. Building 10 will have four professional/retail spaces downstairs and four apartments upstairs. The apartments are 1500 square feet of lovely industrial loft style.

There are two professional tenants who have signed leases for Building 10- Dr. Luis Carrero with New Image General Dentistry and Little Nest, a professional photographer. Two of the four apartments are available. The Sullivans hope that Building 10 will be completed by the end of the year.

Most of the buildings which face Bloomingdale Ave. are constructed with brick. Building 10 will be constructed with white marble.

John Sullivan said, “We wanted to mix things up with this building. It will also match the façade of the Barn at Winthrop.” In addition to white marble, Building 10 and Building 11, which will be built on the other side of the Barn at Winthrop, will have balconies on the front of the building.

Cindy Manchesi, Vice President of Winthrop said, “We listen to the people who live in Winthrop about what they like and what they dislike. We took the top three things that everyone likes and put that into developing Building 10.”

Winthrop is approximately 55 percent developed. In addition to Buildings 10 and 11, there are plans for 15 apartment buildings containing 21 units each. There are also plans for LIFE: Wellness Building which will be situated on the corner of Watson Rd. and Bloomingdale Ave. The plan is for this building to house multiple health modalities.

John and Kay Sullivan bought the property in 2000. They had a vision for the property and to date, they have followed this vision. Kay Sullivan said, “We want Winthrop to be a vibrant, social, pedestrian-friendly community where people of all ages and income feel welcome.”
