Hinsdale-based Foxford Communities has announced the start of construction of Foxford Station, a four-story condominium building in downtown Western Springs, IL.

A ceremonial groundbreaking was held on July 25 to celebrate the redevelopment of the long-vacant Tischler Finer Foods and Breen’s buildings into the mixed-use development including 28 condominiums and 3,600 sq. ft. of commercial space.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by several village officials, brokers and real estate professionals, as well a number of the Foxford Station buyers.

“This development takes a long under-used piece of property and redevelops it to provide housing and retail that will revitalize a prominent corner of downtown Western Springs,” said Alice Gallagher, village of Western Springs president. “We believe Foxford Station is a perfect complement to our downtown infrastructure, one that will attract residents, both old and new, who are drawn to Western Springs’ home-town charm and also desire a maintenance-free lifestyle.”

Cougar Construction, Ltd. based in Palos Heights, is the project’s contractor. The news release did not outline the project’s building permit value.
