Midtown Square Construction Continues, Client John Carlson Named “Young Visionary 2014” by Chicago ULI

Construction is moving right along at Midtown Square, the 215,000 square foot mixed-use community in Glenview developed by Trammell Crow Company (through its wholly owned subsidiary High Street Residential). Exterior framing is complete, with the installation of windows and doors concluding soon. Masonry is going up along Glenview Road, and roofing is near or at full completion.

At this week’s Urban Land Institute Chicago Vision Awards, Trammell Crow Company Senior Vice President John Carlson was named a “Young Visionary” for 2014. According to ULI Chicago’s Chairman Paul Shadle, “the 2014 winners exemplify the policy and practice areas that represent the mission of ULI – community building, sustainability, dynamic neighborhoods, public/private partnerships and how our built environment can foster dynamic relationships, and innovative problem solving.”

We congratulate John on this distinguished recognition and are proud to be associated with Midtown Square—which was also named “Best Block” by the Illinois Congress for the New Urbanism in their 2013 Charter Awards.

Midtown Square will include 138 Class A luxury residences and approximately 9,000 square feet of retail space including a drive-thru, and is located on approximately 2.7 acres in Downtown Glenview, directly east of the Glenview station along Glenview Road, a stop for both Metra commuter rail and Amtrak. The development will offer one- and two-bedroom units that feature balconies or patios, quartz counter tops, nine-foot ceilings and large cabinets. Community amenities will include a sun deck, club room, dog wash station, business center, bicycle storage, concierge station, access control entryways, on-site management, heated parking, and a fitness center. The project is scheduled to be complete in Q4 of this year.
