Another resident asks city's elected officials, administration, developers and residents to not allow apartments in Corporate Reserves project in St. Charles.
Dear Mayor, Alderman, City Officials, KHOV and Meritus Builders, My husband and I have lived at Remington Glen for five years and love living there and especially are proud to be residents of St. Charles. I have read the comments below (see Letter to the City: Corporate Reserves Plan May Be Approved) and stand with my neighbors in asking that you please do not consider apartments for this location. Further, we support all the points so eloquently outlined below and sincerely hope this land is used as it was originally intended…office space. Even single family homes would be such a more fitting solution than apartments. I am sorry to say that we will be in Arizona on 12/10, and unable to attend the meeting. Please know that if we were …

Dear Mayor, Alderman, City Officials, KHOV and Meritus builders, and St Charles residents, I am writing this email to inform the local residents of what is in the works, express mine and my fellow Remington Glen neighbor’s opinions and concerns, urge other residents to express their opinion to the local officials, and convince the city council that this apartment complex is not needed and not beneficial for this city. It has come to my attention that Corporate Reserve will be on the Planning and Development agenda for the Dec. 10th meeting. It has also come to my attention that the board might be leaning towards approval for this project. For those unaware of the current situation, the developers of the Corporate Reserve, JCF, are …

New developers plan to begin sales of 33 new townhomes next month.
After more than a year of inactivity, the Remington Glen development will move forward under new ownership. The property, located near Peck Road and Route 64, fell into foreclosure in 2010. A few weeks ago Chicago-based Meritus Homes acquired the property and will begin selling townhomes next month. The new developer plans to build 33 townhomes priced from the upper $100,000s. Approximately two-thirds of Remington Glen’s original 100 home sites had been sold before Meritus Homes took ownership of the remaining land and the rights to develop, the company announced Thursday. As long as Meritus Homes sticks to the original design of the development they can begin construction without having to go through a city council approving process, …

At first blush, city council members both saw the merits of apartment complex concept plan and threw out a few concerns to developers Monday night
Several St. Charles residents and a few city aldermen think that a proposed west-side apartment complex might be packing in a bit too much into too small a space. City council members took their first public look at an updated proposal for adding a multi-building complex north of West Main Street and Cardinal Drive during a committee meeting Monday night. A brief presentation by representatives associated with the project walked the committee through a concept plan to construct several three-story walk-ups and four-story apartment buildings with as many as 400 units on the Corporate Reserves property. The council members expressed a range of feedback to developer JCF Real Estate, from supporting the concept to expressing serious concerns …

The $40-million project would break ground in April, according to one source.
A St. Charles commission will soon hear a proposal for a new, $40-million luxury apartment project. The concept plan from Schaumburg-based JCF Real Estate for a more than 300-unit project is set to appear on the Nov. 8 St. Charles Plan Commission agenda. Rita Tungare, St. Charles’ director of Community Development, told St. Charles Patch that the property owners want to convert a portion of the Corporate Reserves property, currently zoned for office research space, to apartments. According to a concept plan posted on the city’s website, about 17 acres of the Corporate Reserves site located west of Randall Road and West Main Street would be used for 342 residential units in three- and four-story buildings. About 7,000 square feet of ground …
