NEW Spark Montessori school joins Horner Park neighborhood boom

I stopped by Horner Park to check out recent development adjacent to the park.  I ended up learning about the new Montessori school opening soon at 4326 North California Avenue, Chicago IL 60618.
I visited the development action around Horner Park Park District on Monday after showings.  I ran into the owner / developer of Spark Montessori school located right across the street from the Horner Park play lot.  Pretty good location!  Val noticed me taking photos and showed me around the property.  We also enjoyed discussing the local real estate market.

Horner Park play lot and field house are located directly across the street from Spark Montessori.  Lots of parkland for outdoor activities.
You can check out more about Spark Montessori HERE.  They would like to be open for classes by January 2019. With four kids of my own and many young families as clients on the North Side I understand there is strong demand for early childhood education. Several improved CPS schools with swelling enrollments have had to discontinue their PRE-K and gifted magnet programs to adsorb neighborhood kids.

Horner Park, located in the Irving Park community area of Chicago, has seen it's share of booming single family home and condo development over the past five years.  The median price for a single family home in the neighborhood is over $625,000 while the median price of a condo is an affordable $240,000 (however new construction condo median price is double that).

I'll have more on recent Horner Park neighborhood sales later today!
