After a construction pause of a few years, Toll Brothers is once again building at its luxury townhome and condo site in The Glen (in Glenview, Illinois). I visited the construction site – about 3 blocks from my Glen home – last week and again over the weekend to get a full understanding of what’s been sold and what’s for sale. But first a little history.
Patriot Commons burst onto the Glen scene just as the real estate bubble was about to burst. I well remember the long lines on the first day the homes were available to purchase. But that happy scene was short lived as the economy went south and real estate sales dried up. Toll Brothers built and delivered part of the development, then took a time out until the market recovered. Last year they re-started sales and construction, and Patriot Commons has once again been a hit.
The development – just south of the Glen’s shopping and restaurant “main street” called Glen Town Center – includes townhomes and condos. The townhomes have nearly sold out. In fact there is only one unit still available, a Brantley model with 9’ ceilings, 3 bedrooms, a study and a loft, and a 2 car garage. This home carries a base price of $674,995; and the buyer will receive credits to be used for options/add-ons.
The next phase of development will be a condo building which will offer 35 one and two bedroom homes + dens; plus each unit will have 1 indoor parking space. Size of units range from 1100 to 1450 square feet. Prices of 1 bedroom units begin in the $300s. Six homes have already been sold. Construction for this building will begin in the spring, and delivery is scheduled for the summer of 2016.
For Glen buyers who want new construction, Patriot Commons is a great choice. Not only are the homes lovely, but the proximity to Glen Town Center’s restaurants, shops and movie theater make for a rich and active lifestyle.
