Greg Whittaker, president of Whittaker Builders, says he won't stop building houses in New Town during the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process. He expects to finish the project between 2017 and 2020. Much of his faith stems from the uniqueness of the new urbanism approach.

The philosophy, employed to a lesser degree in some other St. Louis area projects, offers homeowners the appeal of modern construction without the look and feel of a conventional suburban subdivision. Smaller lots are emphasized, punctuated by a mix of styles and prices, as well as easy walking to shops, restaurants and recreation.
Despite Whittaker's financial setback, real estate experts predict that new urbanist communities will continue to have long-term appeal for a niche of home buyers. Local analysts say they don't believe Whittaker ran into trouble because of New Town's new urbanism slant, citing the recession's drag on the U.S. housing market.

New Town's cheapest units now go for $87,500, down from the $93,000 low when the development got started on the northern edge of St. Charles in 2005.
Pat Pashia, who sells homes for Whittaker and lives there as well, says most buyers are looking for a lifestyle change with easily accessible activities.

Paying a buyer's mortgage on their current home isn't necessarily the answer either, Whittaker explains. "You either take money off the price or pay toward the mortgage," he says. "It all works out the same.

"St. Charles has been one of the leading counties in the nation for 20-plus years," says Greg Whittaker, president of Whitaker Homes in St. Louis.

""I've read a little about the bill, and I think anything will help out at this point,"" says Greg Whittaker, president of Whittaker Builders in St. Charles, Mo. ""But in the back of my mind, there is a concern that we're making it too easy for people to buy homes.""

...
According to Whittaker, the runup in housing over the last five years certainly caused many builders to over-build, but the feeding frenzy also cleared the way for cheap loans to people who could not really afford to buy homes. ""Sometimes, it's best to let the market determine who should buy a home,"" he says.
