Hello August!


Hello August!

August, a month synonymous with warmth, adventure, and a vibrant energy, has arrived with the unique feelings that it invokes of endings but also beginnings or the chance at a fresh start for the remaining months of the year. We are sitting here in our office and so thrilled to see the glimmer of hope to the “ending” of Main Street construction. Seeing the fresh white concrete curbs out our office window has given rise to the anticipation of seeing the black asphalt road that will be layed next week! 💃🏻🕺🏽 Here is the current week update on the construction.

A lot is happening in Glen Ellyn and we thought we would pass along some tidbits of info.

One of the new projects that we think is so brilliant is the Glen Ellyn Downtown Event Park proposed at the site of the old US Bank building at the corner of Duane Street and Forest Avenue. Recently purchased by the Village, it will be green space that is utilized for outdoor recreation and special events. Click on the survey link to give feedback on the three plans they are considering. The survey will close on September 5 so take a peak and give your opinion!

Glenwood Station is underway at the old McChesney & Miller location on Crescent. Scheduled to be complete in 2025 it will have a total of 86 apartments with studios and 1-2 bedrooms units and 1,500 square feet of commercial space. Wouldn’t it be great if it had a little food market? 🙏🏼 What we are liking about this development is that it is striving to incorporate some character. The developers are planning to enhance columns & cornice details to mimic historic buildings as well as include gas lanterns, a double sided clock and incorporate the old McChesney & Miller sign into the building.

Lewey Q’s Tap opened a couple weeks ago at 427 Main Street (where Katy’s Boutique was) in Glen Ellyn. Looks like a great menu and place to grab a drink and catch up with friends or watch a game. You gotta love where they came up with the name….Lewey Q Newton owned about 160 acres of property in what is now downtown Glen Ellyn. When the railroad was being built in 1849 the plan was to cut through his property which he sold the right of way as long as he could get guarantees that he could build a train depot. The community that developed around the depot became what we now know as Downtown Glen Ellyn.

Five 0 Four Kitchen at 504 Crescent (location of first Santa Fe restaurant🤓🤓) looks very delicious. Organic food with international flavors for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. yum. Let us know if you have tried it!
