Mariano's, Apartments Coming To Skokie and Dundee

Construction to the North Shore 770 apartment and retail complex is expected to start in Spring 2014.

The corner of Skokie Boulevard and Dundee Road is going to look quite different in the next couple years. 

Last week, Northbrook's village board unanimously approved the development of North Shore 770 on the 101,000 square foot lot on Northbrook's east side, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

The development is expected to bring a Mariano's grocery store, apartments and several other retail options to the siteChicago Tribune reports.

Where are all the comments and protests about traffic and other concerns raised with the Walmart proposal?

Right here! My house is going on the market in the spring. Sunset Ridge Rd will be hell!

This is something to look forward to. While I agree that the traffic in the area will increase, I am looking forward to having some development on that property. There are no houses that back up to that property. That was a major issue with the Walmart building. We cannot escape traffic. If you want no traffic, go live in the country. I do not have a problem turning onto Sunset Ridge Road now. Will the traffic increase, of course it will. I refuse to be all gloom and doom about this project. Let's try to see that positives that this development will bring to the entire village and surrounding area. Happy Holidays everyone!

Sounds like a good plan.

Hmm with a Mariano's going in about a mile away where the Northfield Dominick's is currently, I'm taking bets on which location will close first....

This pretty much was the country when I moved here 22 yrs ago and although I'm not against expansion, something needs to be done about Sunset Ridge Rd. I only have one way off my street. I can sit there for 20 mins at rush hour trying to escape. It's 30mph. People zoom down Sunset Ridge going in excess of 45 most of the time. There is a forest preserve at the end of it. What are you talking about "move to the country?' If you like traffic so much move to the city!

Right, Mesh-Isn't a Mariano's going to take over the Northfield Dominick's spot? Kind of like all the subways we have here...

I don't "love" traffic. No one does. And believe me, if I wanted to live in the city I would. I live here because I want to live here. No one does the speed limit anywhere. Sunset Ridge Road is no exception. Have you seen how fast people speed down Voltz Road? I'm sure the people who live there aren't thrilled. Or Waukegan Road, or Dundee Road or Midway or Dell...I could go on and on. And yes, 22 years ago this was country. But things change. I'm sorry you feel trapped on your street. I have exited onto Sunset Ridge going either direction at various times a day and I don't feel trapped. Although I have another way out of my neighborhood I rarely go that way. What exactly do you want done with Sunset Ridge Road? Widening it will encroach on peoples property. Having a Forest Preserve at the end of your street does not make it the "country". All I was saying is that if you want less traffic, a suburb of a big city is not the ideal place to live. So sorry I don't see things your way. That land will not stay vacant forever. Time marches on. I am surprised that with Mariano's taking the Northfield Dominicks they are even building the one at Dundee and Skokie. We will see if this project even breaks ground!

If you aren't prepared to drive in traffic you may want to consider selling your car and stop driving completely.

Gateway to Northbrook? Are you kidding me? Just like the doomed Center for the North Shore, North Shore 770 is another overdeveloped plan. Congratulations to the Village Board on their hideous legacy!

Frankly, (I"m a Glencoe resident, but live very near to where the proposed Walmart was to be) I don't care what is built on that lot as long as Walmart isn't there. If you don't understand already why Walmart is bad for the community and America in general, than I can't help you understand. No to Walmart!
