Edward R. James Homes to deliver 29 mews townhomes in sought-after downtown location

CHICAGO (October 30, 2014) – Sales have begun for Brighton Mews, a 29-unit luxury townhome development, according to Glenview, Ill.-based homebuilder and developer Edward R. James Homes. The development is located at 303 S. Northwest Hwy in downtown Park Ridge, Ill. Construction is expected to commence later this fall, with deliveries in 2015.

“Park Ridge possesses the rare combination of a thriving urban area that still embodies small-town charm. Residents of Brighton Mews will enjoy the best of both worlds, as it’s advantageously located just a few blocks from the downtown area that’s full of great shops, restaurants, the Metra station and the nostalgic Pickwick Theater,” said Jerry S. James, president of Edward R. James Companies. “We’re excited to offer some of our most popular mews townhome floor plans in this vibrant neighborhood to deliver an exceptional living experience.

Each of the four available floor plans, which range from 2,030 to 2,217 square feet, include three bedrooms and 2½ baths. All plans have 9’ ceilings on the main floor, a two-car garage accessible through the lower level, and a rear private deck on the upper floor that connects to a screened-in porch or optional four-seasons sun room. Some floor plans have an optional fourth bedroom with full bath on the lower level or on the main floor. Additionally, the location of key rooms, including the kitchen, living room and master suite, varies from plan to plan.

High-quality interior finishes include hardwood flooring, Kohler® Coralais kitchen and bathroom fixtures, granite countertops and islands, with energy-efficient utilities. Pricing for the townhomes starts in the upper $400,000s.

“Dozens of prospective buyers have already expressed interest in purchasing a home at Brighton Mews, so we’re excited to formally kick off sales,” said James. “The median price of homes currently listed in Park Ridge is $449,900, so the opportunity to buy new construction at a competitive price is attracting a variety of homebuyers who are seeking a quality home in a quality location.”

Just 14 miles northwest of Chicago, Park Ridge has convenient access to O’Hare Airport, major expressways, such as Interstates 90 and 294, CTA and Metra trains. James added, “Park Ridge draws residents to the beauty of its tree-lined streets, exceptional schools, and ample shopping and recreation. It’s really an ideal place to live, work, shop and play. Having developed Uptown Park Ridge, a mixed-use development we’d delivered in 2010, we’re very proud to have an opportunity to build upon that success for the Park Ridge community.”
