6: The Daily “Save Main” – Apex 400 Myth Busters

Aerial Apex

MYTH:

There are taller buildings all around downtown Glen Ellyn.

REALITY:

At five stories, with zero setback off Main Street or Hillside Avenue, and sitting atop one of the highest points in the Village, this will be—by far—the tallest building in the C5A core retail area, and the tallest building along Main Street between Pennsylvania Avenue and Hillside Avenue, setting an unwanted precedent and permanently changing the face of Glen Ellyn. No other buildings of this height or mass are situated within the central business district; nor do any other buildings of this height abut a National Historic District within the Village limits as Apex 400 would.
