A DuPage County judge has granted multiple motions to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Schoub Properties and Citizens for Glen Ellyn Preservation seeking to halt the development of Apex 400, a mixed-use development to be located at the northwest corner of Main Street and Hillside Avenue in Glen Ellyn, Illinois’ CBD.
In April 2019, the Glen Ellyn Village Board approved GSP Development’s plans for the $40 million project that features 8,844 square feet of first floor commercial space and 107 luxury apartment units on the second through fifth floors. Additionally, as part of the project, a two-story parking garage will incorporate public parking on the first floor and residential parking on the second floor.
In July 2019, the Citizens for Glen Ellyn Preservation filed an emergency motion for a temporary restraining order to stop the demolition of the former Giesche Shoe site. The motion was denied and consequently demolition of the site took place in August 2019. Construction of the Apex 400 development remains on hold pending the outcome of the lawsuit. The plaintiffs were ordered to file a second amended complaint on or before November 4, 2019, when the parties will next return to court.
