North Shore Builders has started construction on Kendall Place, a 19-home development on the former site of Kendall College in northeast Evanston.
Designs for four of the homes were reviewed by the Evanston Preservation Commission Tuesday night.
The homes will range in size from 3,000 to 6,000 square feet with prices beginning in the $1.1 million to $1.2 million range.
The developers say the homes, located in the Northeast Evanston federal historic district, will have traditionally-styled exteriors constructed of brick, stucco and cedar siding.
Interiors will include ten foot ceilings, red oak hardwood floors and granite and marble counters.
“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.”
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.
Completion of the first homes is expected this summer.
