Metro 19 Apartment Development Approved by Village Board

Metro 19 Development

Message from Mayor Maglio

I am happy to announce that during our January 11 meeting, the Village Board voted to approve to the Metro 19 luxury apartment complex development, which will be located north of the Roselle Metra station off of Lawrence Avenue. The entire process for the approval of this transit oriented development project took over a year-and-a-half and involved land exchange agreements, right-of-way approval from outside agencies (Metra and IDOT), recommendations for approval by the East Irving Park TIF Advisory Commission and the Planning and Zoning Commission, and ultimately approval from the Village Board. The developer hopes to break ground on this project later this spring.

The conception of this project is actually closer to 5 years in the making, as this type of development was specifically recommended in the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted back in 2016 following a thorough public input process. This strategic land use plan calls for higher density projects in the downtown area of Roselle, and to better align the Metra Station with the Village’s existing town center. This project will help accomplish both of these goals. We support the higher density because it brings more residents into our downtown area who will support our existing local businesses, and  provides an environment that we hope will attract additional successful businesses to our town center, further building the commercial tax base in Roselle.


Learn more about this project, including renderings and a site plan, on the Metro 19 Apartment Development webpage.
