THE PROPOSAL:

Four Seasons at Indian Lakes

The longtime owners of Indian Lakes have filed an updated plan to repurpose, reinvest in and reconnect Indian Lakes to the broader community. The Village of Bloomingdale stands to benefit through the transformation of the property from a resort, to a resort-at-home community offering residents an active lifestyle in a scenic and social environment.

To reconnect the property to the existing neighborhoods, nearly 1/3 of the property is proposed to be retained as open space with extensive landscaping and public walking trails. This will reconnect all of the neighborhoods that were built after Indian Lakes was built in the 1960’s, create a tranquil setting, provide a buffer between the neighborhood and existing homes and result in new public parkland that the entire community can access and utilize.

Our Commitment To Bloomingdale

“When it became necessary to close the golf course at Indian lakes, we committed to finding a new use that would retain property value, preserve the character of the neighborhood and provide the community with substantial economic benefit,” said Stephen Schwartz, Manager of First ILR, LLC owners of Indian Lakes. “It’s fitting that after more than a half century, Indian Lakes’ future is a resort-at-home neighborhood, where residents can live an active lifestyle rather than just visit for a round of golf or stay the weekend.”

Highlights

The design for Bloomingdale has specifically incorporated extensive walking trails, landscaping and buffers to maintain the transition between the new neighborhood and existing residences that border the former golf course.

Centrally located in the neighborhood will be a clubhouse that serves as the social hub of the community. The clubhouse will feature a pool deck and patio for outdoor social recreation, as well as courts for tennis, bocce ball and pickle ball.

INDIAN LAKES:

Designed for Bloomingdale

Extensive planning has already occurred to maintain the character of the neighborhood, including perimeter landscaping, water features and walking paths. This not only creates the scenic resort-at-home atmosphere in the neighborhood, it allows for a substantial separation between property lines.
The proposed open space buffer is more extensive than most  neighborhoods in Bloomingdale. In several locations landscaped berms will be installed to create a scenic natural buffer. At other points, water features, vegetation and walking paths create a substantial separation between existing and new residences.
