Community proposals for Uptown sites

As part of the Metropolitan Planning Council's three-part workshop process in Uptown, community members developed proposals for the former Stewart School and adjacent parking lot, as well as two strips of land parallelling the Wilson CTA Station.

MPC staff, working with Gensler Architects, U.S. Equities and students from the Illinois Institute of Technology, further developed these proposals both in terms of design and their financing. Please view the PDFs below to learn more about each of the proposals and details about five selected proposals.

Please fill out our public survey to share your thoughts about the proposals, and learn more about the issues through our background materials.
