The Geneva City Council has approved the zoning map amendments and preliminary Planned Unit Development plan for the former Cetron property.
According to the city’s website, Cetron Place is a dramatic downtown-area project that will include 16 single-family homes with a shared courtyard area, six townhouses, a three-story mixed-use building containing 5,450 square feet of retail space and 20 apartments and a bike path connecting West State Street to Peyton Street.
The property — which includes the former Cetron business side as well as parcels on State Street — represents and expansion of the downtown business district as well as creating downtown residential-housing opportunities. The site at one time was slated as the location of a new Geneva library. It was later considered as a site for a large-scale multi-family development.
According to the city’s website, the request includes demolition of existing structures.
The Geneva Public Library will be moving to a new building at the former Sixth Street School site, which was the home of the Kane County Regional Office of Education prior to the library’s purchase of the property.
