General RV OK’d for Chicago Suburb Site
The village board in Huntley, Ill., has given final approval for a new General RV store in the northwest Chicago suburb, The Courier News, Elgin, reported.
Owners of Horizon Group Properties have secured an 8.28-acre site in the auto mall along Route 47 south of the Northwest Tollway and just west of the Prime Outlet Mall.
The development allows for a 1.2-acre parcel to be set aside for the village’s planned interchange at Route 47 and Interstate 90, according to Village Manager David Johnson.
The building will be constructed of beige brick with red awnings and details and offer 33,000 square feet of showroom space. There will be parking for 58 employees plus customers, with 150 parking spots for recreational vehicles.
General RV is headquartered in Michigan and has similar store locations in Ohio, Florida and Utah. This will be the company’s first venture in Illinois.
The board voted unanimously to approve the plat for development.
