Located just 20 minutes north of downtown Chicago, the Glen Town Center is the centerpiece of The Glen, a twelve-hundred acre-master planned community on the site of the former Glenview Naval Air Station and its historic Hanger One.
The Glen Town Center is the Center of Entertainment
The Glen Town Center features pedestrian-oriented parkways and sidewalks connecting residents to the 1,150,000 square feet of retail shops, entertainment venues and residential. A 160,000-square foot Von Maur Department Store and a new state-of-the-art 10-screen Kerasotes Glen 10 Movie Theatres anchor the retail portion of the Glen Town Center. Residents and visitors can also enjoy an 80,000 square foot Dick's Sporting Goods Store, The Book Market at Hangar One, as well as a collection of fine dining venues such as Mitchell’s Fish Market and Bravo! Cucina Italiana, in an authentic Italian setting.
The Glen Town Center’s focal point – or town square – is Navy Park, which plays a vital role in community life as the center of energy in this high-end eclectic mix of retail, entertainment and residential uses.
With more than 5,000 people calling Glenview home, the community offers sixteen-hundred single-family homes, condominiums, town homes and high-end apartments. The Glen Town Center features "Aloft", the 300 class A apartments situated above the heart of the center, and brick condominium row homes.
A collection of fine restaurants and cafes, high quality lifestyle retail, fashion apparel, museums and entertainment uses creates a unique regional destination for the surrounding areas of Chicago’s prestigious North Shore.
For convenient travel to and from Glenview a new Metra commuter rail services the area. For shoppers and visitors driving to The Glen Town Center, more than twenty-four hundred parking spaces are available.
The Glen Town Center's design concept is one of the most innovative in OliverMcMillan's portfolio of creative development solutions. The prestigious architectural firms of Gensler and Pappageorge Haymes, along with planners at Benson & Bohl and Ehrenkrantz, Eckstut & Kuhn, were responsible for bringing The Glen Town Center to life. These talented firms created a nostalgic downtown main street with tree-lined sidewalks, traditional regional facades, and quaint store fronts where families come to stroll, browse and shop while enjoying the feelings of a true village atmosphere.
The Glen Town Center neighbors The Glen Club and the new Fazio-designed Kemper Sports golf course, which is PGA headquarters for Northern Illinois. The Glen Club is a first class golfing experience and includes the Illinois Golf Hall of Fame.
Adjacent to The Glen Town Center is Great Park. This 150-acre green space includes a 54-acre lake, boardwalk, boathouse, playgrounds, gardens, fountains and athletic fields. Residents have easy access to these amenities including a new $25 million recreation center with a pre-school, a new middle school, swimming pool, senior citizen center and other recreational facilities including the Kohl Children's Museum.
This OliverMcMillan project has brought economic revitalization to Chicago’s Glenview suburb serving as a major employment base by providing thousands of jobs to the area. As part of Glenview’s master plan, a one-million square foot office park is underway where a workforce of 5,000 is anticipated upon completion.
