Looks pretty good. Rare good decision on the part of the county (to sell the property).

I think it certainly looks great, but I also want to see the proposed site plan. Personally, I'd like to see them plan out the open space between the county complex and Main in a way that is integrated with the county complex...not just trying to obscure it. In an ideal world, we'd get something that blends Centennial Village with the downtown CP court house square, that is both more urban, creates a destination, and uses the county center as a major centerpiece and landmark (both as the primary destination and the primary source of patrons for whatever retail could located there. Even if it has to be thought of as a phased approach over several decades.

Exclamation New Hotel Development & Subdivision Development Close to I-65 & 109th

Just northwest of I-65 and 109th in the Beacon Hill area, Crown Point will be getting its first hotel:

Hampton Inn moving into Crown Point

Still no more word on the Crown Point Galleria project. Seems like more attention will eventually be towards the Fountains of Crown Point project off I-65 & 231 (northwest corner) especially since Olthof’s Brighton development and Hamilton Square have really been filling in. If the Diocese of Gary proceeds with building a new Andrean in the proposed development just southeast of I-65 & 231, that would be a game changer and would definitely be a boon for the Fountains project. But we shall see.

In other news, another subdivision is likely going to go up just southeast of I-65 & 109th:

New subdivision on 109th Avenue gets Crown Point BZA's nod

If the subdivision is ultimately approved, then this will leave the southwestern and northwestern quadrants of the I-65 & 109th corridor to be developed.

I read a quote by a resident that Crown Point's decision to approve yet more subdivisions is partially based on Andrean potentially coming to 231/I-65. I'm unsure the source and/or credibility. Apparently they're 'banking' on the idea that more residents will send their children to Andrean when it's in a better location (new facility) which will free up the overcrowding that's already felt in the Crown Point Schools.

While I don't find it responsible to approve on assumptions (I mean, the Diocese hasn't even pulled the official trigger yet...) it does correspond with Trump's recent push to pull money from the public school sector and develop the new budget putting more emphasis on the private school sector.

I wouldn't be surprised if I heard expansion ideas for Crown Point Christian and other private schools in the near future should all this turn out to be correct.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...e4f_story.html

Being the election year, there's a lot of things up in the air on all these grand ideas. Makes for some fingers crossed scenarios.

The other alternative is the obvious Winfield Middle School and High School projects to actually come to be drawing a hard line using I-65 to round out the new boundary.

They wouldn't use I-65 as the boundary. Colorado Street is the boundary between Center and Winfield Township and that would be the line most likely. Down the road I could see Winfield Middle School and Winfield High School. The Winfield Tigers sounds good to me. Of course Winfield Warriors would make sense, but with the movement away from Native names, Tigers flows well.

CPHS will be over 3000 kids pretty soon and I just don't see them continuing to keep adding on. A Winfield HS of 1200-1800 kids down the road would make sense to me.

It's still really desirable. I love driving through Crown Point and Winfield to look at the new subdivisions being built. Tons of young families with kids, both school age and those not even school age yet. A lot of Illinois demand of course, plus demand from places further north in Lake County, and I would imagine many completely new to the area pick Crown Point/Winfield.
