Next Generation Development (Wheaton, IL) has developed the first phase of the 460 unit development, Metro 59 in Aurora, IL. The project is within walking distance to the Aurora Metra Stop, one of the busiest stop on the Metra line. Phase 1, financed through HUD, is now completed with 4 – buildings which total 232 apartments as well as a 10,000 square foot clubhouse.
