Military Base Becomes Newest Community Along Chicago's North Shore
Since the early 1980s, military bases across the country have been decommissioned, leaving communities in fear of the potential economic impact. After the base was decommissioned in 1993, four developers joined forces to create the first new community along Chicago's North Shore in more than 100 years. As part of the design, Red Seal used vinyl windows in all of the homes. The exterior of the windows on the town homes is a dark forest green while the interior is white; the single-family dwellings' windows have a beige exterior and a white interior.
