Tour of apartment complexes ‘homework’ for Johnsburg
JOHNSBURG – One of Johnsburg’s committees is doing its homework.
The Johnsburg Development and Governmental Affairs Committee will tour three apartment complexes Saturday morning as part of its research ahead of deciding whether to recommend a development application.
Developers hope to build an apartment complex that would qualify for low-income housing tax credits, something unusual for the village of Johnsburg, which currently has only one apartment complex.
After meeting in the parking lot of Johnsburg Village Hall, 1515 Channel Beach Ave., at 9 a.m. for roll call, committee members and other attendees will tour three complexes owned by the developer, Banner Apartments.
• Rosewood Apartments, 216 W. Forest Ave., Round Lake, about 9:30 a.m.;
• Emerald Pointe Apartments, 695 Westmoreland Drive, Vernon Hills, about 10:30 a.m.; and
• The Residences At Fountain Square, 3690 Casmir Pulaski Drive, Waukegan, about 11:30 a.m.
The proposed 72-unit apartment complex in Johnsburg would be consistent with other projects Banner has done, Chris Hooker, a senior development associate with Banner, told the village’s Development and Government Affairs Committee at its last meeting.
Banner builds properties it wants to manage, Hooker said, adding that it will be a quality project.
