More news on new construction in The Glen

Since my last Glen blog a week ago, there have been developments relative to new construction housing.  As my regular readers know, The Glen is an upscale residential and retail development in Glenview, Illinois on Chicago’s North Shore.  There are numerous neighborhoods with luxury single family homes, townhomes, row homes, two-flats, duplexes, villas, and apartment condos.  The development is anchored by Glen Town Center which is home to scores of restaurants and shops.

Last week I reported on two new construction opportunities in The Glen.  The first is Regency, a Pulte homes development of townhomes and duplex villas.  At that time there were 5 homes still available in the neighborhood of 149 homes.  In the last week three of these sold, leaving only the two model homes for sale.  These homes are beautifully decorated, so they are perfect for buyers looking for new construction in move in condition.

I also told you about Westgate, a new development which will offer 173 townhomes, row homes and single family homes.  Over the weekend I visited the site, and I see that “coming soon” signs have appeared on the property.  The sales center is under construction, and I noted some early signs of infrastructure occurring on the property.  As soon as I receive a definitive date when homes will be offered for sale, I will be very active working with the buyers who have contacted me with interest in this neighborhood.

Both Regency and Westgate are particularly close to the Glen’s two golf courses, The Glen Club’s 18 hole championship course and Glenview Prairie Club, a beautifully maintained 9 hole course.

There is one other new construction opportunity in the future, and I failed to mention it in my last blog.  Patriot Commons is a stunning development on the south edge of Glen Town Center bordering The Glen Club course.  68 townhomes and condo apartments were completed a few years ago.  The developer, Toll Brothers, put further development on hold due to the difficult real estate environment that existed at that time.  I am told that Toll Brothers will complete the development sometime in the next year or two.
