RTA logo Wood Dale Station Area Plan

Study Description

This study provided a station area plan that examined ways to integrate development plans and increase access to the station, taking into account the roadway re-alignment and rail grade separation feasibility studies that are currently underway. A market analysis was conducted to ascertain the commercial, residential, and retail markets in the station area.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2004
Project Type(s):Transit-Oriented Development Plan
Grantee:Village of Wood Dale
Current Activities:The study was completed in June, 2006. The Village is currently exploring technical assistance opportunities to update their village-wide comprehensive plan. Once this is accomplished, rezoning the TOD area is the next step. Wood Dale Station, a mixed-use condo building, was built across from the station in 2006 and additional condos were built along Irving Park Road in the TOD area.

Wood Dale was chosen as part of the 2011 RTA Community Planning Program of Projects for assistance with developer recruitment and solicitation of opportunities in the TOD study area. A panel of development experts met in July 2012 to discuss potential redevelopment opportunities on City-owned land across from the Metra station. A summary of this discussion can be found below under Study Documents.
