Orland Park TOD Plan
Client: Regional Transportation Authority & Village of Orland Park
Location: Orland Park, Illinois
Farr Associates was hired to prepare a land use plan for the 29-acre site adjacent to the 143rd St. Metra station in Orland Park. The public input process revealed a desire for a town center, a feature of community life missing from the community. The resulting $135 million transit village plan is anchored by a mixed-use rail and bus station facing a traditional town square, now called Crescent Park, with more than 1.1 million square feet of housing, office, restaurants and retail space. In 2014, a developer of one of the largest parcels in the plan opened a mixed use building called Ninety7Fifty on the Park with 295 apartments and ground story commercial.
