The Prime Group Closes Huntley Land Sale to Del Webb ¦ ,T.*-"^" ^jSSSPSJS Del Webb's Sun City Huntley is scheduled to open a Preview Center at the Huntley Factory Shops Outlet Mall on February 1. It has been occupying temporary quarters at the mall since December 10. Del Webb expects to begin work on the central facilities for Sun City Huntley in March, with first closings on homes anticipated in Spring of 1999. Gary J. Skoien, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of The Prime Group, Inc., recently announced the closing of a 1,562 acre land sale to Del Webb Corp. at the firm's master planned community in Huntley. The Del Webb site is located west of Route 47 and north of the Northwest ToUway (1-90). Del Webb acquired the parcel to develop the first four-seasons Sun City, an age-restricted, active-adult community. This unique development will incorporate more than 5,000 homes as well as two golf courses and various leisure amenities. According to a company spokesman, empty-nesters who want to remain close to family and familiar surroundings are creating the demand for local Sun City communities. "The advent of Sun City will benefit many facets of this growing community," said Skoien, "including the generation of impact fees and an increased tax base for School District #158. We feel that the quality of product developed by Del Webb will complement The Prime Group's visions for Huntley." Skoin noted that Prime, who has already invested over $17million in infrastructure at Huntley, will collaborate with Del Webb to enhance amenities with the widening of Route 47 as well as the construction of a waste water treatment plant and new roads to serve Sun City. According to The Prime Group, their development in Huntley is the largest master-planned community in the Midwest, totaling 2650 acres, including the Sun City parcel. The development will eventually incorporate a 220-acre golf club including an 18-hole championship course and a 9-hole par three executive course, 345 acres of commercial/retail use, a 288-acre corporate office park, an 83-acre business park and 22 acres for municipal functions. Established in 1982, The Prime Group, Inc. is a real estate development and holding company. Three former divisions of Prime are now self-managed and self- administered publicly-traded real estate investment trusts. Prime Retail, Inc. (NYSE:PRT) is the largest developer of upscale factory outlet centers in the United States.
