Lexington Club (Former Applied Composites Site)
The Lexington Club Project is a residential redevelopment of the former Applied Composites Company industrial site located northwest of Downtown St. Charles. The property is generally bounded by Dean Street and Street Street on the south, 5th Street on the east, railroad tracks on the north, and 12th Street on the west. The overall site area is approximately 28 acres.
The Applied Composites Company ceased operation at the site in 2005. In 2008, the City Council adopted a Comprehensive Plan Amendment with future land use and development recommendations for the site and the surrounding neighborhood. The City Council approved the Planned Unit Development (PUD) for the project on January 7, 2013 and approved the Final Plat of Subdivision on April 15, 2013.
Update to Planning and Development Committee - November 11, 2013:
Lexington Homes has hired Huff and Huff as their environmental consultant. Huff and Huff has installed monitoring wells on the site, performed necessary sampling, and completed and submitted the necessary documentation required for enrollment into the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency's (IEPA) Site Remediation Program (SRP). On October 4, 2013, the project site was officially accepted into the IEPA's Site Remediation program. Currently, Huff and Huff is in the process of drafting up the Site Investigation Work Plan and intends to submit this to the IEPA by the end of the year.
Lexington's Engineer, WBK Associates, is completing revisions to the Final Engineering Plans and anticipates submitting the revised on-site and off-site plans in the near future for review and approval by City staff. Pending approval, WBK will then submit permit applications to the IEPA for the construction of the sanitary sewer and water main.
Lexington Homes has indicated that they intend to commence tree and foundation removal on site in the 1st Quarter of 2014.
