North East corner of Harlem and Cermak to see redevelopment

On Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2010 at Berwyn’s Committee of the Whole Meeting, the council came to a unanimous decision to approve a proposal for redevelopment on the North East Corner of Harlem and Cermak.

The proposal, made by Timothy Hague of Keystone Ventures, Drew Krisco and Sherree Krisco of Bern Reality will receive its official redevelopment agreement on Sept. 28.

If all goes according to plan, the area will see 4 new buildings. It is too early in planning to specify exactly what business will be coming in, but Hague says that he and his team are currently in talks with different vendors. The corner will include a center pedestrian plaza, an outdoor seating cafe and a gateway feature identifying Berwyn. They estimate that it will take about a year to complete.

Besides keeping the community well fed, Hague is glad to help provide new job opportunities, more tax revenue and encouragement for private investment. When asked if he anticipates any opposition, Hague joked, “Only if they don’t like to eat.”
