En route to Marquette Village on Thursday, I stopped by Revere Way, the 90 single-family homes that are being developed in Greater Grand Crossing. Joe had spotted an ad in the Trib a few days prior announcing a developer closeout for Phase 2, so I stopped by to take a few photos of the development.
When I arrived at 7211 S Ellis Ave, I discovered that Revere Way is an infill development of single-family homes that are dispersed throughout the neighborhood instead of being consolidated in a group like Marquette Village.
The homes are being built in a small pocket within Greater Grand Crossing referred to as the Revere neighborhood on the development Web site, which is bordered by the Oak Woods Cemetery, the Illinois Central railroad and South Chicago Avenue. The neighborhood is anchored by the eye-catching Gary Comer Youth Center (below, at left) and Paul Revere Elementary School (below, at right).
According to Tiffany Johnson from Phenom Realty Group, the 90-home development has been broken into three, 30-house phases. All of the 1,600 square-foot three-bedroom / two-bath homes are priced in the $240s, but a $50,000 community investment subsidy from the Comer Science and Education Foundation brings the price down below $200,000.
The first phase has been built and sold out, and Phase 2 is down to the last seven homes. For the developer closeout incentive, Johnson says that fully-furnished 600 square-foot basements will be added to three of the homes, and buyers of the remaining four homes will be offered free computers.
Sales for Phase 3 are currently underway. Those homes will be the same size and price as the first two phases, but Johnson says they will have larger front porches.
