Talamore Looks At Senior Housing With End Of Sun City Buildout
John Carroll, Division President of developer Ryland Homes, said the change, in contrast to a lot of others in the Chicago area, was a reaction to a Huntley real estate strength, rather than a weakness. "With the completion of Del Webb there's a demand for age restricted housing in Huntley," he said.
The resale market in Sun City's sure moving, said Huntley Board Member and Sun City Community Association Board Member Harry Leopold. "In the last two months 58 homes have changed hands," he said.
Switching Talamore Pod Two to single-family homes isn't just a question of pasting on a new label, though, since it was laid out for a denser development. Building setbacks would be from adjacent structures rather than lotlines, for instance. The Huntley Plan Commission will hold a public hearing about the proposed changes at 6:30 pm Monday at Village Hall.
The Huntley Board also jiggered with the lot lines in the Huntley Pointe Corporate Park at Jim Dhamer Drive and Hennig Road so Woodstock's LionHeart Engineering can put a new 24,000 square-foot office/warehouse there.
