Mill Street Station is a 63-unit new construction two-story townhome development for families located in Oswego, Illinois. The fourteen buildings include 2, 3, and 4 BR homes in a family-friendly environment. The project replicates the style and materials of the existing units that surround the rental community.Mill Street Station was originally intended as a home ownership community but was only partially sold when the construction lender took ownership of the site in 2009. Iceberg completed the roads, sidewalks and infrastructure that benefited the entire Mill Street community. The rental units blend seamlessly into the fabric of the neighborhood. Residents enjoy access to the adjacent Metra shuttle as well as to Oswego's excellent schools and recreational opportunities.
