Longford Glen Builder in Des Plaines Makes Divine Contribution


Kennedy Community Development, one of The Kennedy Group of Companies, is taking a different, more divine path in the design of two homes near its Longford Glen community in northwest suburban Des Plaines.

"At every Kennedy community, we're involved in some way with the surrounding neighborhoods," said Tom Gillespie, president of Kennedy Community Development (KCD). "In this case, the neighborhood has come to join us."

Together with the St. Paul Chong Ha Sang Catholic Mission, the home builder's neighbor at Longford Glen, plans are in the works for KCD to build a convent and a rectory on the church's property that adjoins the new community of 74 luxury single-family homes.

The rectory will be built first, from a modified version of Kennedy's 2,733-square-foot Canterbury plan. Work on the second home, to be used as a convent, will begin while the rectory is still under construction. The convent will be adapted from the 1,664-square-foot Covington ranch plan offered only by Kennedy Residential, another of the Kennedy Companies, at Farmington Fields in Belvidere.

"When they told us of their needs, we knew we had to find something that matched, and we knew the ranch plan we had wouldn't be it," said Gillespie. "Because of The Kennedy Group's diversity, however, we were able to reach out to our sister company in Belvidere and solve the problem." He says KCD may offer the Covington to the general public at Longford Glen in the near future.

The seven floor plans offered at Longford Glen range in size from 2,283 to 3,272 square feet, with base prices from $311,900 to $365,900 (subject to change without notice). Six of the plans have four bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and three-car garages; the seventh is a three-bedroom, two-bath, 2 1/2-car garage ranch. Approximately half of the homes already have been purchased.

Longford Glen is being built on 55 acres on the Des Plaines-Mount Prospect border, just north of the Kylemore Greens development launched by Kennedy four years ago. While building that community, Kennedy joined with nearby Maryville Academy in the builder's ongoing program of including students in the construction process.

"In this case, however, the project presented itself, and the entire congregation got behind the idea of joining the new community to the new church," Gillespie said. …
