The Village of Orland Park Transit-Oriented Development Planning Study developed a conceptual plan to facilitate mixed-use development in the Metra 143rd Street station area. The plan thematically ties the station area to Orland Park's historic district, south of 143rd Street. Recommendations included a mix of land uses, including housing, shops and offices surrounding a new 143rd Street Metra station. The plan also included a recommendation for the relocation of the commuter rail station to the north and east of its current location to mitigate access and circulation problems at the original station site. The study was completed in November 2000.
|Project Type(s):||Transit-Oriented Development Plan|
|Grantee:||Village of Orland Park|
|Current Activities:||Orland Park constructed and opened a new Metra station at 143rd Street in April, 2007. Service was also doubled on the SW Service line at the same time and saw a 20% increase in ridership. The Village also updated their zoning ordinance to include transit-supportive regulations.|
Ninety 7 Fifty on the Park, a 295-unit luxury apartment complex & commercial development built near the 143rd Street Metra station, broke ground in March 2012 and is now fully occupied.
In October 2014 the Residences of Orland Park Crossing, a 231‐unit rental apartment, rowhome and townhome development broke ground across the street from the 143rd Metra station at 143rd and La Grange Road and the first residential units have been delivered for occupancy. A Mariano's grocery store has also opened in the commercial area adjacent to this site.
In 2014, the University of Chicago announced that they will be developing a 120,000SF outpatient medical facility at the northwest corner of 143rd Street and LaGrange Road which opened in December 2016. In conjunction with this project, the Village constructed a parking structure at the northeast corner of 143rd Street and Ravinia Avenue which opened in October 2016. This project adds 520+ spaces on roughly two acres of currently vacant municipal-owned land and includes a 12,000 square foot restaurant space.
In March 2017 the next development for the station area was announced by the Village for the 1.6-acre, triangle-shaped property it owns just west of the Ninety 7 Fifty on the Park apartment building and south of the 143rd Street Metra station, which is a two story, 80,000 sq. ft. mixed used building. This newest development will be anchored by a luxury cinema on the second floor with first floor specialty retail and restaurant tenants.
