Eagerly Awaited Glen of Mukwonago Condominium Neighborhood Grand Opening Celebration Set for May 15-18

April 30, 2014

Dignitaries to Join Future Home Owners for Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Model Tours

For the past year, people in and around Waukesha County have been waiting to see a new lifestyle condominium neighborhood become a reality on the northern edge of the Village of Mukwonago. What would the new ranch-style condominiums look like? How would they take advantage of the beautiful location overlooking the Vernon Marsh?

On Thursday May 15th at 11:30 a.m., the wait will officially be over. Public dignitaries will join home owners and future homeowners for a ribbon cutting ceremony and celebratory lunch to officially open The Glen of Mukwonago at 1165 Black Bear Drive, just off Highway 83 on the northern edge of the Village.

The celebration will be followed by the official public Grand Opening weekend, Friday through Sunday May 16-18, with free food and tours of the model homes. The new neighborhood is the latest success story for Cornerstone Development of S.E.WI after similar developments in Menomonee Falls, Brookfield and Sussex.

“There have been a lot of people who have been waiting to see The Glen of Mukwonago’ models and clubhouse,” said John Wahlen, owner of Cornerstone Development. “These are new floor plans specifically designed to take advantage of this location with all of the beautiful views of the Vernon Marsh and the Fox River. We’re expecting a packed house to see how our models are finished.”

Previously, a different developer had started a condominium neighborhood at this same location but the project was not completed. Cornerstone was able to turn things around by using a different approach.

“We bring a real advantage with the clubhouse, as that sets the stage for the neighborhood with a gathering spot,” said Wahlen. “We also think our floor plans take much better advantage of the entire location. Pricing is presented at a great value. People can live here starting at $229,000, where similar units had previous been in the high $200,000’s. It’s a chance for people from around the Mukwonago area to live in a new home, in a beautiful location that’s incredibly convenient, but without having to spend their lives’ fortunes. We will appeal to those who want to change how they live, but not where they live. That is, a new, low-maintenance condominium neighborhood.”

The neighborhood will feature homes with standard basements, lookout basements and walk-out basements with decks and patios. Some of the new homes do not have basements but will still have a big two-and-a-half-car garage with storage above the garage.

“There’s a lot to offer in terms of outdoor living space in conjunction with the home,” said Wahlen. “The homes are split-ranch, ranging from 1,300 square feet to about1,600 square feet. Some of our homes also have sun rooms, which are four-season rooms with lots of windows to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The homes are located very high, in a setting surrounded by trees, so you feel like you’re in the north woods. Yet, you are right off Highway 83 at the edge of Mukwonago, so you can literally walk to a hardware store, grocery store, garden center, the park, and several restaurants.”

In addition to the great floor plans, flexible pricing options and excellent location, Citizens Bank of Mukwonago is working with potential buyers to make this lifestyle change a reality.

“Citizens Bank is working aggressively with potential home buyers to look at the amount of money they might need to purchase a home from us and they will work very closely with them and do their best to make that happen,” said Wahlen. “The bank has really been a great partner in this endeavor.”
