Coming…Westgate at the Glen

In May I wrote a blog about a new housing development on the drawing boards for The Glen.  The Glen is the premier lifestyle community on the North Shore in Glenview, Illinois.  The Glen offers several residential neighborhoods and is anchored by Glen Town Center which has numerous restaurants, shops, a book store, coffee shop, and a movie theater.

The proposed development is close to final approval (I am keeping my fingers crossed), so I thought this would be a good time to provide an update.  The development, by Edward R. James Partners, LLC, will be called Westgate at the Glen.  It will be located adjacent to the new Regency neighborhood of townhomes and villas just north of West Lake Avenue and west of Shermer Road.  This places it immediately across Shermer from Glenview Prairie Club Golf Course and across West Lake from The Glen Club, an 18 hole championship golf course.  It is near Southgate at the Glen which was also developed by the James team.  Westgate is convenient to Glen Town Center, Gallery Park, Attea Middle School, and the Glen’s Metra train station.

173 homes are to be constructed on approximately 29.25 acres of land.  71 row homes, 68 Mews townhomes, and 34 single family homes are planned.  The single family homes and row homes will be configured with first floor master bedrooms; they will have two stories.  The townhomes will have three stories with all bedrooms on the top floor.  The row homes facing Shermer will have golf course views.

The development will be built in two phases.  Each phase will include a mix of row homes and townhomes.  The entire development will have common areas; and it is intended to provide “nearly maintenance-free” living.

Final approval is expected in the late first quarter or early second quarter of 2014, and infrastructure development will begin sometime within 12 months thereafter.
