The developer for a proposed six-story, 48-unit condominium building at 4000 DuBois Blvd. in Brookfield said he hopes to break ground on the development by Sept. 1. and that the former Brookfield Moose Lodge currently on the site will be demolished in June or July.
In the meantime, Michael Beckerman of Triumph Real Estate said that the ParcCongress Station development’s sales office, 9425 Ogden Ave., will host a grand opening April 8 and 9, offering pre-construction price breaks and other special offers.
Potential buyers will be able to examine floor plans for the one- and two-bedroom units, which are being offered at prices ranging between $224,900 and $329,900.
Last week, Beckerman said he met with Village Manager Riccardo Ginex, providing copies of the exterior rendering and proposed floor plans. In two months, Beckerman said he expects to be able to present full architectural drawings to the village.
The development’s architect is Cordogan Clark & Associates of Aurora. The site for the condo building is 33,350 square feet of land in Brookfield C-2 commercial district, which is bounded by Ogden Avenue on the south, the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe railroad tracks on the north, Eberly Avenue on the west and DuBois Boulevard on the east.
The plan calls for 48 condo units (36 two-bedroom and 12 one-bedroom units) on floors two through six, with enclosed ground level parking. The plan calls for 1.75 parking spaces for each residential unit.
Those architectural plans will then be reviewed by B&F Technical, the village’s code services consultant.
“We will try to keep a close eye on that process, so it can get turned around,” said Assistant Village Manager Keith Sbiral. “My intent is to get these moving pretty quickly.”
Unless the architect’s drawings would require additional zoning variations, the development will not need to go through any further review by the Zoning Board of Appeals, Plan Commission or village board.
In December 2004, the village board voted to grant 11 zoning variations for a condo development at the property, which at that time was owned by Steven Campbell. That vote was a rejection of the findings made by the village’s Zoning Board of Appeals, which recommended denial of eight of the 11 variations.
On Jan. 4, 2006, Campbell sold the property to Burr Ridge-based Triumph Real Estate for $1.35 million. He had purchased the property in 1999 for $260,000.
