    Developers could break ground on at least three multifamily housing complexes this year in and around Lombard, village officials say. Bill Heniff, director of community development, said numerous apartment ideas have been brought to the village in recent months — including the possibility of a 120-unit building being constructed on the site of the old DuPage Theatre — but only three have completed, or are close to completing, the entitlement process.

  • New home’s ‘noises’ won’t be easy to silence Mar 29, 2015 1:00 AM
    Q. We live in a 16-month-old house. There are noises coming from pipes in two areas: the water heater — a few thumps happen each time water starts to flow; and the furnace — two pipes go from the furnace up through the ceiling, and there is a lot of creaking going on when the furnace is on, which is most of the winter here in the Chicago area.
