Controlled, continued development and improvement maintains the integrity of the neighborhoods of the northwest suburbs and preserves the unique identity of each.
Older neighborhoods are marked with historic homes from the 18th and 19th centuries, and new subdivisions provide modern and executive housing.
More than a third of the housing is dedicated to single family living, with prices ranging from $175,000 to well over $1,000,000.
Housing trends in the 1980s saw a large increase in the number of multi-family units, including townhomes and condominiums. Now, most of the new construction is upper end single-family homes that range from $700,000 to $1,000,000.
