Get back to living at Whittaker’s New Town at St. Charles because when you buy here, you not only get a home but a whole town. In these trying times, doesn’t it make sense to live in a small town setting with daily needs, entertainment and amenities within walking and biking distance? Whittaker is offering discounts like everyone else so don’t settle for a regular subdivision when you can live in a true new urbanism town.

Whittaker has Hiram Street Condos, with prices starting from the $120’s! “With old-world charm on the outside yet all the conveniences of modern living inside, these condos have been selling quickly,” says President Greg Whittaker. “The exteriors radiate a European feel with a u-shaped pass-through, a stucco front and quaint outdoor living areas. The interiors come standard with dramatic 9’ ceilings, 42” cabinets, quality Kolbe & Kolbe windows and more.” For those looking to rent Whittaker presents an exciting new option! The Hiram Street Apartments are nearing completion and boast all the refinement of the Hiram Street Condos. Fountains, trellises and hand laid pavers create a 'Woonerf' or livable street that places the emphasis on the pedestrian rather than the automobile. Covered parking is available but discreetly located. Inside, one bedroom studio apartments offer 10' ceilings, cork or stained concrete floors, all your major appliances and start at just $610.00 a month. The two bedroom garden units offer full carpet or stained concrete floors and walk-in showers. Town homes boast 10' ceilings on both the first and second floor with stained concrete on the lower level and carpet on the upper. Two bedroom units range from $950.00 to $1150.00. 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 Whittaker. 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 – we have a dry cleaner, two hair salons, an interior design shop, insurance agencies and more. Residents also have New Town Fitness, a 24-hour gym with the latest cardiovascular and circuit training machines.” Pumpkins are selling like hot cakes in New Town! A bumper crop of pumpkins make up the first harvest of the long anticipated New Town Organic Farm and represent just the beginning of the good things to come out of this beautiful compound located right in the heart of the community. The New Town Organic Farm will soon be the place to go for Christmas trees, bedding plants and fresh vegetables and is a welcome addition to the New Town landscape and lifestyle.

For buyers interested in single-family homes, inquire about the new Traditional Neighborhood Collection. “This particular series of homes offers 10 spacious plans from the $170’s. Ask about the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath two-story home from $199,500!” says Whittaker.

Ultimately, New Town, a $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 proposed town center and four neighborhood centers.
