The layout of The Glen…more than beautiful homes

While The Glen (in Glenview Illinois) is principally known for its 1300 luxury homes in nine neighborhoods, you will find retail, commercial and professional areas as well. This impressive development, now about 15 years old, was laid out thoughtfully and with great care. The arrangement of these various and distinct areas works to the benefit of Glen residents and of visitors who come for its first class dining, recreation, entertainment, and services.

Just as there are unique residential neighborhoods in the Glen, there are distinct retail areas, too. On the south end of The Glen, you will find an upscale shopping plaza anchored by the Jewel Osco grocery store and pharmacy. There is a Little Gym franchise for kids, Glen Spa and Nails, a dentist (Dr. Suh, who is loved and admired by all), H & R Block tax services, Lauren’s Cleaners, and two restaurants.

Glen Town Center is The Glen’s “Main Street”. It offers numerous restaurants, boutiques, the Arclight Cinema, a coffee house, two ice cream/yogurt parlors, and much more.

Just north of Glen proper, separated from every other part of the community by Willow Road, you’ll find Costco and Home Depot. This area is physically separate and aesthetically very different from the main part of the Glen, but the convenience of these popular retailers is greatly valued by Glen residents.

Commercial and professional offices in the Glen may be found north of Glen Town Center and south of Willow Road. Many different types of business are located here, as well as numerous doctors’ offices. There is even a walk-in Northwestern Medical outpatient clinic.

So that’s the layout of The Glen. It’s a great place to own a home, shop, visit for entertainment, receive medical care, and do business.
