After more than four hours of discussion, the Glenview Village Board signaled its support Tuesday, Feb. 18, for a plan to redevelop the former Bess Hardware property. 

Trustees voted 4-2 in favor of approving the Drake Group’s proposal for a five-story mixed-use complex with 68 housing units — four studio apartments, 6 three-bedroom apartments and the remainder split between one- and two-bedroom apartments — and a retail establishment on the ground floor.
