RTA logo Clarendon Hills Train Station Redevelopment Phase I Implementation

Study Description

This project resulted in a phased implementation plan for advancing the redevelopment of the Clarendon Hills Metra Station area. The Village completed a transit-oriented development study for their Metra Station area in 2006; this project further refined the recommendations from that study, focusing specifically on the train station and commuter lot redevelopment. The implementation plan recommended two redevelopment alternatives. The near-term plan recommended access improvements, including a pedestrian underpass under the tracks, and revitalization of the existing station house. The long-term plan builds on the near-term plans and recommends a full redevelopment of the current commuter lot into a parking deck, commercial space and a new station house. The final report was adopted by the Village Board in March 2012.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2010
Project Type(s):Transit-Oriented Development Plan
Grantee:Village of Clarendon Hills
Current Activities:Within the development area identified in the Clarendon Hills TOD plan, two mixed-use developments are currently being constructed and will be available for occupancy the summer of 2018. A four-story development with 42 apartment units with 900 square feet of street level commercial at the corner of Park and Walker Avenue is nearing completion and will be available for occupancy July 1, 2018. At the corner of Park and Prospect Avenues (88 Park Avenue) a three story 8-unit apartment building is also under construction and is estimated to be completed and available for occupancy by the late summer of 2018. Both of these projects are within a two to three block walk of the Metra station and the adjoining Pace Bus stop in downtown Clarendon Hills. In May of 2018 Clarendon Hills received an Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) grant for new railroad crossings gates at Prospect Avenue; improved pedestrian crossings and corner bump out enhancements at Prospect Avenue, Burlington Avenue, and Eastern Avenue/Anne Streets; installation/enhancement of bicycle lockup areas and shelters north and south of BNSF; development of a defined kiss-and-ride north of BNSF; and other streetscape improvements including plaza development, benches and street landscaping. The Village is also in the planning stages for replacement of its commuter station.
