Update on Patriot Commons in The Glen

Patriot Commons is a beautiful housing development in The Glen, Glenview, Illinois.  The developer is highly respected Toll Brothers.  This development of condos and townhomes (near Glen Town Center’s many restaurants and shops) really took off a few years ago, but like many new construction projects it hit the wall during the recession.  After completing and selling out phase one, construction stopped, and I haven’t seen activity at the sales center in some time.  Since I occasionally receive emails and calls about Patriot Commons, I decided to do some investigating.

I learned that Toll Brothers does indeed plan to complete this development; however no schedule has been established at this time.  Construction may begin again sometime in 2014.  At that time, the company plans to build 51 more homes, 35 condos and 16 townhomes.  Assuming the configurations remain the same, there will be 6 different condo models ranging in size between 1141 – 1388 sq ft and 3 different townhome models.

I toured the models a few years ago.  They are close to my Tower Crossing home in The Glen.  The homes were stunning, and some had breathtaking views of the championship golf course at The Glen Club.  The materials and workmanship were of very high quality.  I’m sure existing owners love their homes and the Glen lifestyle.  When Toll Brothers begins building in Patriot Commons again, the homes will compete with row homes, condos and villas in several existing Glen neighborhoods including Regency (Pulte’s new development), Cambridge, Southgate, and Glen Shores.  The townhome/villa development recently announced by Edward R. James Partners for the Glen will be coming online next year, too.
