Westage at the Glen…one step closer to reality

The Glenview Planning Commission just approved a new housing project to be constructed in The Glen and called Westgate at The Glen Townes.  It will go before Glenview’s board in February for final approval which is expected.

The Glen is the North Shore’s premier lifestyle community located in Glenview, Illinois approximately 20 miles north of downtown Chicago.  It offers luxury homes (single family homes, row homes, townhomes, condos, duplexes, and two-flats) as well as a park, lake, walking trails, health club, movie theater, two golf courses, and a quaint main street called Glen Town Center filled with shops and restaurants.  Westgate will be the most recent – and perhaps the last – new construction community in the Glen.

173 homes are planned for this E.R. James Partners project.  As I’ve written in previous blogs, 34 will be single family homes and 139 will be row homes and townhomes.  I’ve recently learned more about the homes to be offered, particularly the sizes.  The single family home models, all with first floor master bedrooms, will range between 1,885 sq ft and 2,464 sq ft; and the architectural designs will be offered in New England shingle, French Country, and Old English.  The attached housing models will range between 2,037 sq ft and 2,980 (a mix of first and second level master bedrooms),and their architectural styles will be offered in New England shingle, Classic Revival, Old English, Craftsman, and Federal.  All homes will have three bedrooms and two-car attached garages.

Prices have not been announced.  There is some speculation (only speculation at this point) that the builder will attempt to price the homes roughly in between those in the Regency and Tower Crossing developments in The Glen.  Timeframes for construction and sales have not been announced.  E. R. James Partners has a sterling reputation for quality, as evidenced by its very upscale Glen development called Southgate on The Glen.  I believe the Westgate development will be very popular.
