No homes for sale in Tower Crossing in The Glen

That’s right.  There are no homes available in Tower Crossing, the luxury townhome development in the heart of The Glen.

The Glen is an upscale residential and retail development in Glenview, Illinois in the Chicago area’s North Shore.  It is composed of eight residential neighborhoods (not counting retirement and assisted living communities) with a total of 1,349 homes and 3912 residents.  Glen Town Center is The Glen’s “Main Street” with scores of shops and restaurants, along with a movie theatre, coffee shop, book store and Kohl Children’s Museum.

Tower Crossing borders Glen Town Center on three sides which puts its residents within a few steps of dining and shopping venues.  This is one of the key attractions of Tower Crossing.  The homes are stunning, but the lifestyle is perhaps even more important to homeowners.

Tower Crossing has 154 four-story brick townhomes, all of which were sold by the developer years ago.  There are 6 models and 8 floor plans ranging in size from 3,031 to 4,105 square feet.  Home prices currently range from the low $600’s to around $800,000.  Many have views of Battery Park, Lake Glenview and The Glen Club’s 18 hole championship golf course.

Back to my point about inventory.  2013 has been an active one for Tower Crossing homes sales.  19 homes have sold and another is under contract waiting to close, but in a development of this size to have nothing currently on the market is rare.  Winter, of course, is typically slow in real estate, but Tower Crossing since its inception in 2003 has always had homes for sale either from the developer (through 2006) or since then from homeowners.  Another reason for no listings?  Because the people who live here LOVE IT.

Undoubtedly we will see some listings after the first of the year, so if you may be interested in Tower Crossing (where I proudly live!) or anywhere in The Glen, please contact me at
