According to a recent study, The New Town at St. Charles, a new urbanism development off Hwy. 370 and New Town Blvd., was the best-selling development out of 18,600 communities in 16 states for the second year in a row!

The study was conducted by MarketGraphics. The independent study included data from the last twelve months for MarketGraphics markets in 16 states. Edsel Charles began MarketGraphics in the late 1980’s to respond to the needs of builders and developers for factual information to make good business decisions. Over 15 years later, MarketGraphics, and its affiliates are in sixteen states and have a client list that includes most of the country’s top builders.

In 2005, New Town was named the best-selling community out of 17,280 communities in 16 states. This most recent study showed New Town on top once again in 2006, comparing the development to over 18,600 communities in 16 Central and Midwestern states.

Developer Greg Whittaker, president of Whittaker Homes, is proud of New Town’s success and considers it a great honor to be the best-selling development two years in a row. Whittaker contributes the success to two key factors.

"This is one of the only new-home developments in the entire Midwest that adheres to the new urbanism (otherwise known as a traditional neighborhood development) architectural design principles and guidelines. If you want to live in a new home in a true traditional neighborhood development, New Town is the place to buy," says Whittaker.

The New Town at St. Charles also is one of the most affordable new urbanism projects in the entire country. In fact, new urbanism experts agree that New Town is one of the most important new urbanism projects in the country because of the mix of housing types and price ranges. Prices start from the mid-$100’s and range to $800’s+. Housing types include townhome mansions, row houses, cottages, single-family homes, custom homes, live work units and senior courtyards.

Ultimately, this $1.5 billion project will be a thriving town with approximately 5,700 residences in ten phases, with a carefully planned mix of homes in addition to a large town center and four neighborhood centers.
