Developer wants to build townhouse development in Roselle

Author: | Posted in USA No comments

A residential developer is seeking permission to build a townhouse development on the west side of Roselle.

On Tuesday, the planning and zoning commission will review Lexington Homes LLC’s proposal to develop an 11-building, 64-unit townhouse on 34 acres along Rodenburg Road, south of the railroad tracks.

The Roselle board of trustees, who approved the property’s redevelopment in May, will have the final say on whether the project will continue. The village board is expected to vote on the plan later this month.

Lexington is a Chicago-based developer specializing in building single-family homes and townhouses in the Chicagoland area. The company has many projects in progress and completion, including townhouses in Warrenville, single-family homes in Glenview and Chicago’s Norwood Park neighborhood, and townhouses in Arlington Heights.

The Roselle development would be called the “Timberleaf”.

Village engineering staff reviewed Lexington’s final site and engineering plans. The company received stormwater management and wetland approval from DuPage County earlier this year. The developer has also obtained the necessary permits from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

Village property would watch for flooding, as the townhouses would be near a wetland.

If built, the townhouse development is expected to attract young professionals with families to Roselle.

Another project expected to attract young professionals to the village is the $80 million Metro 19 Apartment complex approved earlier this year. It will be adjacent to Metra Station and will include a five-story, 293-unit condominium with parking.

Planning and zoning commission meeting Tuesday at 7:00 pm at Roselle village building, 31 S. Prospect St.
