Uptown Park Ridge Final Phase Opens for Holiday Season


PR Uptown HolidayThe final phase of the Park Ridge Uptown Redevelopment was completed in October of 2008, just in time to celebrate the holiday season. The development includes 270,000 square feet of residential space, 50,000 square feet of retail space, and 455 underground parking stalls, all in a bustling, pedestrian- friendly, mixed-use community that retains the historic character of Park Ridge.  In 2008, the project won two awards. The Illinois Chapter of the American Planning Association chose the redevelopment as a Gold Award winner for its transit-oriented and mixed-use focus. Likewise, the Illinois Chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism selected the project as its winner in the "Neighborhood, District and Corridor" category during the 2008 awards ceremony.
