Taylor Morrison Brings New Take on Urban Living to Des Plaines
National Homebuilder Unveils Colfax Crossing with Food Trucks, Giveaways and Free Metra Cards on July 30

DES PLAINES, Ill., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Taylor Morrison, a leading national homebuilder and developer, is unveiling its first urban living community in Chicago with a grand opening celebration at Colfax Crossing in Des Plaines on July 30.


Inspired by the needs of today's Chicago homebuyer, Colfax Crossing offers a suburban-style neighborhood within an urban setting, giving its residents the chance to own a new home in an area with a distinctive metropolitan lifestyle.

Visitors will get their first look at Colfax Crossing during the July 30 grand opening, which will feature tasty treats from local food trucks, free prizes every hour and chances to win Metra passes and a Weber gas grill. The event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., will feature local food truck favorites Chicago Lunchbox and Sweet Ride Bakery as well as The Local Coffee, Tea & Sweets to kick off the event.

"This is a community that offers homebuyers the best of both worlds," said Bob Meyn, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison's Chicago division. "It's a chance to own a new home in a thriving city that not only has its own character and flavor, but also offers convenient access to downtown Chicago. What could be better?"

The courtyard-style townhome community is just minutes from almost 60 city parks, highly regarded public and private schools, shopping, dining and more. Residents can play golf with Lake Opeka as their backdrop, visit the McDonald's Museum or hike along the Des Plaines River Trail.

"In addition to being walking distance to the Metra, Interstates 90 and 294 are close by as well, meaning no Chicago destination is more than a few minutes away," Meyn said. "It's a great place to call home."

Priced from the upper $200,000s, Colfax Crossing will offer maintenance-free living in a townhome community that boasts two distinct floor plans. The Swarthmore and Bryn Mawr floor plans each offer more than 1,700 square feet of smart living spaces, including three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and two-car garages.

Don't need three bedrooms? Each floor plan also offers an alternate upper level that increases the size of each bedroom, adding walk-in closets and optional coffered ceilings for each room.

"These are truly special homes that will appeal to smart homebuyers looking to maximize their lifestyle and their buying power," Meyn said.
