Village Approves Agreement to Sell Lot Next to Sendik’s
At the Village Board meeting on April 4, 2023, a purchase and sale agreement with Via Real Estate was approved to build a Champion Xpress car wash at 6190 W. Loomis Rd. (next to the Sendik’s Fresh-to-Go). The sale is contingent upon the developer obtaining necessary zoning approvals.
The 0.8-acre parcel is a remnant from the lot that once contained the fire station before it moved to its current location on Grange Ave. The property was developed into the Sendik’s and gas station with a driveway on Loomis Rd. that was designed to serve both the Sendik’s and a future user on the north side of the former fire department property. The north parcel is 0.8 acres and with dead trees affected by emerald ash borer that should be removed. The surrounding creek and wooded area will remain undeveloped.
In October 2022, the Village issued a request for proposals to realtors and developers for the purchase and development of 6190 W. Loomis Rd. and received one proposal for a tunnel-style car wash. The proposal was subsequently approved by the Village Board on November 1. The project will require approvals of detailed plans for the car wash, including a site plan, and things like traffic flow and safety will be reviewed by our village engineer, planner and plan commission. Upon recommendation from the staff and Plan Commission, the Village Board would need to grant approval, at a future meeting date, of the site and building plans.
The parcel will be sold for $300,000 and will have an estimated assessed value between $1.5-$2.0 million.
