PRESS RELEASE: The Missner Group Begins Construction on Glenview Retail Development

(Skokie, Illinois) - The Missner Group is pleased to announce that the firm has begun construction on the extensive infrastructure for a multi-phase retail development on behalf of GlenStar Properties. The 22-acre property is located near the interchange of Willow Road and I-294 near the new Headquarters of the Americas for Astellas Pharma US in Glenview, Illinois.
The substantial development of the well-traversed intersection and surrounding area has been underway for the past five years. Within the past year, the Missner Group teamed with GlenStar, with whom they have worked on multiple projects throughout the region, to assist with the pre-construction permitting and due diligence for the site infrastructure. 
“This highly visible project has required a great deal of collaboration between the construction team, developer, civil engineers and the villages of both Northbrook and Glenview,” said Glen Missner, executive vice president for The Missner Group. “From the pre-construction through the duration of the project, we draw from our vast experience working with villages and project team members to create an open communication process which promotes efficiency and accountability.”
The Missner Group is currently underway on Phase 1 of the development which includes the construction of roads, sidewalks and multiple large-scale parking lots as well as both above and below ground detention areas. The project will also consist of extensive and lush landscaping, implementation of site lighting and utilities, and the construction of site pads for a multi-story senior living facility and a number of national retail tenants. The Missner Group is also contracted to construct two, multi-tenant retail buildings as part of Phase 2 of the development. 
The construction team for The Missner Group is led by Glen Missner, Project Manager Jack Sbertoli, Project Engineer Patrick Ennes and Project Superintendent Angelo Christopher. Manhard Consulting is the civil engineer for the first phase of the project. Phase 1 of the development is scheduled for completion at the end of this year.
