Update October 10, 2022

The Village Plan Commission reviewed redevelopment concepts for the 2.2-acre Roosevelt Road Taft Avenue site during a special meeting on October 6. These concepts were developed through a design charrette process that occurred this past June. Plan Commission members provided feedback on the conceptual site plans and other related aspects of redevelopment. This feedback will be incorporated into final concepts prepared by the Village’s consultant Kon Savoy Consulting Group, to be shared with the Village Board at its upcoming November 7 meeting. Additionally, the Village has hired CBRE to assist us in marketing the site for redevelopment.

The final redevelopment concepts approved by the Village Board for further consideration will be provided to CBRE and all interested parties in order to communicate the Community’s vision and align potential development plans with this vision. The Village will consider all options that align with the Village’s goals to secure successful redevelopment.

Background 

On January 12, 2022 the Village of Glen Ellyn closed on two Roosevelt Road hotel properties at a cost of $2.85 million. The properties consist of approximately 2.2 acres and include two buildings located at 675-677 Roosevelt Road and 660 Taft Road.

In anticipation of closing on the hotel properties, the Village issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) in August. In September, the Village selected Kon Savoy Consulting Group of Evanston, IL to assist in identifying a vision for redevelopment of the site and to recruit potential developers. The Village has begun accepting public input on the redevelopment of the properties, which will continue through late April.

In February 2022, the Village Board established the Roosevelt Road/Taft Avenue Hotel Sites Work Group and appointed ten members of the Glen Ellyn community. The Ad Hoc Work Group held three public listening sessions in April, May and June to solicit public input and gather information on potential redevelopment of the sites. To view recordings of the meetings, please click on the links under  "Public Input Process" below. 

Following completion of the Listening Sessions by the Ad Hoc Work Group, the Village will be engaging in a visioning process. The process will be led by the Village's consultant, Kon Savoy Consulting, and wil bring together existing site constraints, the results of a market analysis and the public input received. This information will be used to inform the development of up to five (5) different concept plans for the site. Concepts considered for the site may include commercial retail and restaurant uses, multi-family housing, attainable housing, or mixed-use development.
