Bess Plans Move Forward

On Feb. 18, the Glenview Village Board voted 4-2 to approve The Drake Group’s plans to develop the former Bess Hardware site which features a five-story building with 68 apartments and one retail location.

FDG Leader Greg Goodsitt, pictured above, made a final presentation to the Board urging consideration of a larger setback for more community interaction and green space.

Since it was not a unanimous vote, the Board will cast a second consideration vote at its next meeting on Tuesday, March 3. The Drake Group plans will continue to receive feedback from the Village Appearance Commission. The next Appearance Commission meeting is March 11 at which public comments can be made.
