Study Description

This project created a transit-oriented development plan for an approximate mile radius of the Geneva Metra Station. The plan recommendations focused on the expansion of retail development, increasing housing diversity, mixed-use development, parking expansion and improving access to and around the station. The final report consists of an existing conditions report, market analysis, concept plan, parking and circulation plan, design guidelines and implementation recommendations.
