Village Purchases Land for Apartment Complex for $1.2 Million

The Village of Greendale completed a $1.2 million purchase of 8 acres of property for the development of a 160-unit, high-end apartment complex on land just east of Southridge Mall. The village purchased the land from J.C. Penney Corp.

Previously, the Village Board approved a proposal by General Capital and Robert Joseph Properties for a 160 unit apartment complex at Southridge Mall at their meeting on June 7. The complex will be located on the east side of the JC Penney property at on mall property.

The residential complex includes three buildings with underground parking. The buildings will have a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom units, and three-bedroom units. The complex includes 64 one-bedroom units, 92 two-bedroom units and 4 three-bedroom units, 182 underground parking spaces and 86 surface lot parking spaces. The complex will include a clubhouse between the two buildings on the west side of the development. A courtyard will link the north and south buildings.

Two of the buildings will access the Southridge Mall ring road, and one 46 unit building will access 68th Street.

General Capital previously constructed the 90 unit Berkshire Greendale Senior Housing complex, also adjacent to Southridge Mall.

  1. Trud!

    Why won’t the Village and School System use their TIF Authority to rebuild some of thiese apartments.

    Do not get me wrong. I am not against apartments and those who live in them. I am against a School System and Village that is living in LA LA Land about the realities Greendale faces.

    We might have a wonderful 4th of July and Village Days. The Deciders get to march in a parade that had more stops than goes.

    We may have a great band program that requires the parents and everyone to drink the cool aid of worshiping band director that those who know, know.

    We need better housing, a revitalized industrial park and a school system that looks ahead, not backwards.

    Come on Greendale. We can do better than this.

      This is good for 99% of the village. Just because there is a group of noisy and obnoxious thugs that are attempting to thwart the progress of the village doesn’t mean the board should back down from doing the right thing.. You all made the right decision and the rest of the village stands behind you!!!

        Dear Curt,
        I attended both trustee meetings and both open houses at the Hose Tower listening and talking with the “M” section residents. Based on my observations, they behaved appropriately and spoke in a conversational tone. Referring to our fellow residents as “noisy and obnoxious thugs” is a gross exaggeration of their presentations. Respectfully I suggest that you owe them an apology for such a negative reference to their methods of presentation. I would be proud to have any of the “M” sections residents as my neighbors.
        Regards – Bill Kewan

          I’ve been unable to attend the meetings so I apologize in advance if a question I am asking has already been answered. Were traffic pattern studies done in the M section as I live there and saw nothing? Were the M section residents actually individually canvassed for their opinions since they are most impacted by the potential traffic increase through their subdivision? How much money will be contributed to our tax base since Greendale will not own the apartments? Take a look at the Greenway Apartments. They are most definitely not something for Greendale to hang their hats on.
