Developer Seeks City Approval for Former Jewel Property Plan
Developer submits plans to city's zoning board for three-story medical office building in downtown Wheaton.
Mokena-based developer Olympia Investments is requesting planned unit development (PUD) approval to demolish the old Jewel building at 114 E. Willow Ave. to build a three-story, 40,035-square-foot medical office building that will be operated by the DuPage Medical Group, according to a city staff memo.
The proposed re-development of the site includes construction of the new building on the north portion of the property—facing Illinois Street, 116 parking spaces and two full-access drives.
The building design would include a combination of red and tan masonry with tinted glass windows and canopies over the patient entrance.
City staff recommended approval of the PUD with some conditions for the developer. Wheaton City Council will make the final decision with a recommendation from the zoning board.
The zoning board will meet 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26 at City Hall.
