This study built off an initial downtown strategic plan completed by the Village in 1998. The Village was successful in implementing much of that plan; this plan focused on the remaining redevelopment opportunity sites and provides recommendations to improve multi-modal access to the Metra station and the Village's downtown.
|Project Type(s):||Transit-Oriented Development Plan|
|Grantee:||Village of Mount Prospect|
|Current Activities:||The final plan is complete and was accepted by the Village Board in December 2013. Construction on the Founders Row rowhomes, at Central and Emerson, was completed in 2013. For more information please visit: http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20130321/business/703219803/.|
In fall of 2015 the Village was awarded CMAQ funding for covered bicycle parking at the Mount Prospect Station via the RTA's Access to Transit Improvement Program. Work has also begun on an extensive renovation of the station, which is expected to be complete in early 2017.
In March 2018 Mount Prospect took a major step towards implementation when the Village Board approved a six-story, mixed-use development on a key opportunity site identified in the plan. The '20 West' project, located at the intersection of Northwest Highway and Busse Avenue, will include 73 apartments and a two-story restaurant with 78 parking spaces on-site. It will be constructed on a parcel currently occupied by a surface parking lot, across the street from the Mount Prospect Metra station.
