The latest proposal for a residential and commercial development as part of Wheeling's ambitious Town Center development will come before the village board Monday night.
Developer Cedar Street Companies wants to transform the long-vacant five acres at the northeast corner of Dundee Road and Northgate Parkway into Dundee Commons, a mixed-use planned development.
The proposal calls for fronting Dundee Road with a brick, steel and aluminum building containing 12,000 square feet of retail space. Commitments have already been obtained for half the space, including a jewelry store and a restaurant, the developer said in a news release.
The residential area would include 38 rental units, with an interior community space, 18 garage spaces and 48 surface parking spaces. It would also include rowhomes and carriage homes ranging from two- to three-bedrooms and 1,480 to 2,150 square feet.
The proposal is the latest piece of the Town Center, following on the heels of the village board's approval earlier this month of Uptown 500 -- a $64 million development with 262 apartments, 12,000 square feet of commercial space and a six-story parking garage at the northwest corner of Dundee Road and Northgate Parkway.
Dundee Commons has home size accommodations for young singles, seniors and families. Homes can have a rooftop patio or an additional story to provide more living space. The proposal includes picnic areas, patios, two gazebos, two firepits, a dog park, walking path and butterfly garden.
Cedar Street has owned the property at the northeast corner of Dundee and Milwaukee since 2010 and in March 2014 acquired the lot at 370 W. Dundee to add to the project. Architectural firm Smith Group JJR is a partner in the project.
The plan will be formally submitted to the board at its meeting 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4, at village hall, 2 Community Blvd.
