PRAIRIE CROSSING PHASE II
The community of Prairie Crossing located outside of Chicago, IL is known as the original master planned community in North America to create a dense New Urban community anchored by a 100-acre Organic Farm and Farm Entrepreneur Center. This innovative development included an unrealized Phase II parcel which was designed by KIRLEY+ and its founder Keith Kirley, AIA to further develop the concept of master planned communities with integrated agriculture and public markets. Located at the intersection of 2 regional commuter rails, the Phase II development creates a mixed-use community anchored by a large public market and market square. It's direct adjacency to the commuter rail and a mixture of commercial and residential uses create a vibrant, mixed-use transit-oriented development for the 21st Century.
