Luxury Amenities, Restaurant Planned for Marq on Main Apartment Complex in Downtown Lisle

Development in Downtown Lisle

Proximity to the Lisle commuter station is not the only attraction of Marq on Main, the mixed use residential community currently under development on the site what once was the Old Village Hall in Downtown Lisle. The project has a host of luxury amenities to offer residents seeking the vibrancy and convenience of downtown living coupled with the small-town ambience and natural surroundings of the “Arboretum Village.”

 

The mixed-use development includes 202  1- and 2-bedroom apartments in five stories on Burlington Avenue and three stories along Main Street, with indoor parking for residents and tenants, as well as 35 new on-street parking spaces. Some 15,000 square-feet of new commercial space will add restaurant and retail uses that will strengthen the commercial district, build foot traffic and enhance the downtown as an attractive dining destination. The development will feature a new public plaza offering outdoor dining at Main and Burlington, as well an additional public plaza at Spencer and Burlington, and two rooftop courtyards providing along Burlington Avenue. An upscale restaurant and craft beer tap room is planned.

 

“We are pleased to be adding to the vitality of Downtown Lisle,” says Marquette President and CEO Nick Ryan. “Mayor Broda and the Village have remained committed to economic development and this transit-oriented development is the type of development that has seen great success in surrounding communities. We expect to see the same energy and interest in downtown Lisle.”

 

Amenities residents can enjoy include a resort-style pool with cabanas and sun deck, as well as a pergola lounge, fire table and grilling stations. Indoors, residents will have access to a tech lounge and a chill lounge with coffee available 24-hours. An onsite health club is also planned. The development brings an investment of $45M to downtown Lisle, and is now leasing for an expected Fall 2017 opening.

Spotlight on Carol Stream

Carol Stream, Illinois

In the last year, Carol Stream economic development has been booming. Several projects (listed below) have resulted in over 1 million square-feet of new or expanded industrial building space. These projects have either been completed, are currently under construction, or under review.

 

Mercedes Benz Parts Distribution Center

Construction has been completed in October 2016 on an 84,000 square-foot addition to the company’s existing 210,000 square-foot Parts Distribution Center. Future plans call for further expansion of the Parts Distribution Center, and possible construction of a Central-US Technical Learning and Performance Training Center. 

 

DCT Industrial/CoreCentric Solutions

In October 2016, DCT Industrial completed the teardown and redevelopment of a 20-acre property on North Avenue (IL-64) with a new 350,000 square-foot build-to-suit for CoreCentric Solutions. The reverse logistics supply chain company, serving the appliance and other industries, consolidated its three previous locations in Carol Stream, Glendale Heights and Hanover Park into this single, modern building.
