The property is currently developed with a one-story, +/- 13,500 square-foot commercial building and 42 parking stalls, which was formerly owned and occupied by the McChesney & Miller grocery store. One of the longest-running businesses in DuPage County, the business opened in 1862 and relocated to the subject property in 1975. In the fall of 2014, the business closed and the property is now vacant.

Approval Process

This project required review and approval of a Special Use Permit for a Planned Unit Development Plan with Zoning Deviations, a Special Use Permit for Multi-Family Dwelling Units, and Exterior Appearance approval.  

Pre-Application Meeting: Held May 14, 2020

Prior to filing formal applications for the above, a Pre-Application Meeting with the Plan Commission is required as part of the Planned Unit Development review process. This meeting took place on Thursday, May 14, 2020, via Zoom. To review the meeting agenda, materials, and approved meeting minutes, please visit the Village’s Agendas & Minutes page

Following the Pre-Application Meeting, the developer has elected to proceed with a formal proposal for the property and submitted full plans and documentation to the Village, most of which are available above for ease of viewing and clarity.  The entire submittal package is on file in the Community Development Department at the Glen Ellyn Civic Center, 535 Duane Street. 

Public Hearing: Held November 12, 2020

On November 12, 2020, the Village's Plan Commission held a public hearing, virtually, to review the proposal for the Glenwood Station Planned Unit Development. The proposed five-story, mixed-use development is located on the north side of Crescent Boulevard between Glenwood and Prospect Avenues.

After presentations by Village staff and the developer, the commission heard comments from members of the public. The Plan Commission then deliberated and recommended, with a vote of 7-1, that the Village Board approve the project. 

The Plan Commission meeting agenda, staff report, and the plans and documents submitted by the developer are available for public view on the Village’s Agendas & Minutes page. 

Village Board Meeting: Held December 14, 2020

On December 14, the Glen Ellyn Village Board unanimously approved the Glenwood Station Planned Unit Development. During the meeting, Village trustees granted approval of the following: 

  • A Preliminary and Final Planned Unit Development Plan with zoning deviations.
  • A special use permit to allow multi-family dwellings.
  • An application for exterior appearance approval.

The Village Board also approved a redevelopment agreement with the Developer. The Board agreed to a performance based tax incentive agreement to make the project financially viable. A 50/50 percent reimbursement will only occur if the project is completed and if the development generates an increase in property taxes for the Central Business District (CBD) Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) District. This development is projected to generate on average $400,000 a year in taxes in comparison to the $20,000 being generated today.

Demolition is expected to begin as early as November 2021, with construction of the building beginning in April 2022. Developers anticipate substantial completion of the project by December 2023.
