Whittaker Homes has opened a new sales center at The New Town at St. Charles, a new urbanism development off Hwy. 370 and New Town Blvd. The new sales office is located at 3312 Rue Royale in the heart of the neighborhood center next to Marsala’s Market.

New Town’s first neighborhood center is the hub of activity with an outdoor amphitheater, Town Hall, Mail Room, Marsala’s Market, Prancing Pony Books & CafĂ©, Rudy’s Ribs, Torta Della’s Pizza and neighborhood stores. The first of over 40 sold live work units are expected to be completed this Fall/Winter.

“While we have five row houses and five single-family homes on display, we thought that the sales and information center should be moved to the heart of the development. People typically buy here because they are ready to drive less and walk more with their daily needs in a true town setting. Our first neighborhood center represents this quality of life – families can be seen walking to and from Marsala’s Market while friends enjoy a glass of wine in the Jazz Courtyard at the Prancing Pony. Now interested buyers can see and experience this firsthand with the new location of our sales center,” says Greg Whittaker, president of Whittaker Homes.

Ultimately, New Town, a $1.5 billion project, will be a thriving town with approximately 5,700 residences in ten phases, with a carefully planned mix of homes in addition to a proposed large town center and four neighborhood centers.

To reach The New Town at St. Charles, take Hwy. 370 to north on New Town Blvd., 1 ? miles to New Town on the right. Follow the signs to the new sales center. Hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily. For information, call 636-949-2700 or visit
