Almost seven years after Kendall College moved from its site bounded by Sherman and Orrington Avenues and Colfax and Lincoln Streets, a new development called “Kendall Place” has officially broken ground at the now vacant site.

Kendall Place will be comprised of 19 single family homes with approximately 3,000 to 6,000 square feet and sales prices beginning in the $1.1 million to $1.2 million range. Of the 19 properties, 14 lots will be 44-feet wide by 164-feet deep, while the additional five lots will be 70-feet wide by 106-feet deep. All homes will include a two-car garage, full finished basement, and fenced yard.

Construction is underway on the model home, and initial homeowners are slated to move in during the summer of 2014, said Winnetka-based North Shore Builders, the developer, in a prepared statement. The new homes will reflect traditional architectural style exteriors constructed of brick, stucco and cedar siding that will blend in with the existing neighborhood, the company added.

“With construction underway, we are one step closer to making our vision for Kendall Place a reality,” said Tony Meyers, vice president of North Shore Builders. “We are already meeting with prospective homeowners and are very pleased with the excellent reception we have received on our floor plans and the variety of available choices at our design center.”
