Get back to living at Whittaker’s New Town at St. Charles! Sure we’re offering discounts like everyone else so why settle for a regular subdivision? At Whittaker’s New Town, when people buy a home they get a whole town. It’s a place that has small town charm with daily needs and entertainment within walking or biking distance. Simply put, New Town changes the way people live their life.

New Town was the best-selling community out of over 18,600 communities in 16 states two years in a row. This new urbanism development also was mentioned under St. Charles, MO for one of the top 100 places in America to raise a family in the book, Best Places to Raise Your Family by Bert Sperling and Peter Sander.

While these recognitions are impressive, it takes a visit to the town to truly appreciate how it can change one’s life. “The ambience and charm here is something everyone should experience” says Greg Whittaker, developer. “T. Alderson’s Cities Service Diner just opened in New Town. This 40’s style diner serves American comfort food. Whether you want breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert, T. Alderson’s is at your service. On any given day, you’ll find families, groups of kids who rode their bikes up for a hot fudge sundae or people on their lunch break sitting at the chrome stools.”

Residents of New Town have a choice to walk to their daily needs and entertainment; a choice that does not present itself in most new home developments. “Visit and you’ll see residents walking to Marsala’s Market for their groceries or to Domain Street Wine Bar or Ruskin O’ Brien’s Irish Pub for happy hour,” says Whittaker. “Many services are offered in New Town as well – we have a dry cleaners, two hair salons, an interior design shop, insurance agencies and more. Residents also enjoy New Town Fitness, a 24-hour neighborhood gym with the latest cardiovascular and circuit training machines.”

In the summer, New Town residents enjoy Shire Lane Pool Club. This elegant urban oasis was designed by Corban & Goode, a world-renowned landscape architectural firm out of Toronto. There is a 700-square foot lazy river, the Junior Olympic lap pool the relaxing leisure pool, the children’s area and splash pad, and this is already known as one of the nicest residential pools in Missouri!
