Morton Grove new construction lingers on market

20 years on the North Shore without going native.

7446 Foster, Morton Grove, Illinois

Morton Grove is one of those easily-overlooked near north suburbs. It had some notoriety in the 1920s for its slot machines and roadhouses, but that faded with the Depression.

The opening of the Edens Expressway in the 1950s kicked off a wave of development. Relatively small homes sprouted on relatively large lots, attracting city dwellers. In the more recent past the lot sizes and functionally obsolescent homes attracted developers. Teardowns and new construction became the order of the day.

One of those newly-built homes, 7446 Foster, has been languishing on the market for nearly two years. The 4,000-plus square foot home includes 4 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths and a 2 ½ car garage. The price was reduced a month ago to $799,000.
