Aerial Apex

MYTH:

Apex 400 will bring more residents to Glen Ellyn, which will boost pedestrian traffic and bring untold benefits to retail and other businesses in the Village.

REALITY:

The developer claims Apex 400 will bring about 150 new Glen Ellyn residents, but research suggests that dense residential buildings like this do not move the needle on economic development. Indeed, approving a development that risks the historic character and unique charm of the central business district actually puts the Village’s economic engine at risk. We risk more than we gain with this development.
