Thorndale Corridor

Wood Dale, Illinois

In order to capitalize on extensive roadway and transit changes that are planned for O’Hare International Airport which include a Western Terminal, an extension of the Elgin-O’Hare Expressway, and two interchanges, Lakota developed a strategic master plan for the Thorndale Corridor, located in Wood Dale, Illinois. The Plan defines a sustainable “Corporate Main Street” organized around a walkable, mixed-used corridor. This one-of-a-kind environment can accommodate 4 million square feet of office, hotel, retail, restaurant, and light industrial space, as well as apartments, condominiums, transit nodes, and plazas. It includes 16 key corner locations for development along 1.5 miles of expressway frontage, as well as a shared stormwater management system.
