RTA logo Chicago Washington Park 63rd Street Corridor TOD Study

Study Description

This project created a transit access improvement and transit-oriented development (TOD) plan for the 63rd Street Corridor in Chicago's Washington Park Neighborhood between the Cottage Grove Green Line station on the east and the King Drive Green Line station on the west. The plan outlines land use development concepts, design guidelines, and implementation strategies for access improvements and TOD along the corridor that will help maximize the existing transit investments within the neighborhood, including CTA bus routes (Route 63, which ranks ninth in overall bus ridership for the CTA) and rail services. The plan serves as a guide to enhance development, increase transit ridership and expand housing and economic development opportunities in the neighborhood.
