Wagner Farms is a 113 acre parcel located at the northwest corner of Route 59 and 103rd Street in the City of Naperville. The property has been owned by the Wagner family since 1961, when the family relocated its vegetable farm from Elk Grove Village. The family ultimately farmed acreage from 95th Street to 103rd Street and Route 59 to Book Road. At that time, the Wagner family was selling produce at wholesale to Campbell Soup.
As Naperville grew the family consistently lost land and transformed its business from a wholesale operation to a retail farmstand and nursery. Nearly 60 years later, development now surrounds Wagner Farms and practical difficulties associated with the farming operations have dictated the very difficult decision to cease farming operations and sell the property.
Pulte Home Company LLC is the contract purchaser of Wagner Farms. Pulte originally submitted development plans to the City of Naperville on August 10, 2018 seeking annexation of the property to the City of Naperville and approval of plans for a 346 unit single family development.
On October 30th, 2018, Pulte submitted updated development plans to the City of Naperville. In addition to addressing a number of technical issues, Pulte revised the plans to: i) reduce lot count from 346 to 312 units; and ii) create a separate 8 acre parcel at the corner of 103rd Street and Route 59. The 8 acre parcel is proposed to facilitate the separate sale and development of that parcel by Compass Church. Compass Church would then build a new 2-story Church with a 600 seat worship center on the property.
Copies of the updated plans, include a copy of the Compass Church site plan, have been posted to this website for the convenience of residents interested in the project.
