An Aldi's Food Market and a new restaurant soon may be coming to Huntley.

Village officials this week reviewed Elgin-based developer Interstate Partners' plans for the grocery store and a multi-tenant commercial building in Regency Square commercial and business park, west of Route 47 and south of Kreutzer Road.

The property is immediately south of the developer's previous project, which includes Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches, Little Caesars Pizza, Rookies All-American Pub and Grill and Starbucks, all of which opened last year.

Plans call for a 6,560-square-foot building with two tenant spaces, of which one would be occupied by Brunch Café, and another 17,014-square-foot building to house Aldi's.

Brunch Café, which has restaurants in Roselle, Fox River Grove and McHenry, serves breakfast and lunch only. The proposed eatery would include an outdoor patio on the north end. A second tenant has not yet been identified.

Huntley Village Manager David Johnson said Friday officials have wanted to add some new restaurants to the village's menu.

"To have the Brunch Café is something we believe will be a good fit for the community," he said. "The Aldi presents a different shopping alternative to what we have in town."

Huntley currently has a selection of grocery choices, including a Walmart Supercenter just east of Route 47, a Jewel-Osco, and the local Wisted's Supermarket.

After a July review, the village board requested changes to the proposed restaurant building. This week, board members instructed the developer to further tweak the design for the Aldi's to break up the monotony of the large, brick-faced building with windows and awnings, Johnson said.

The developer already changed exterior elevations and columns. Yet, some board members felt the building's east and south elevations could use additional work to add more depth, Johnson said.

The village board is expected to give the proposed development final approval next Thursday. Construction could begin later this fall.

Even with this project, there are still a number of development opportunities available in the mixed-use Regency Square, where 123 of 160 acres remain vacant, Johnson said.
