95th Street Corridor Plan

About

Initiated in early 2023, the 95th Street Corridor Plan is seeking to foster equitable Transit-Oriented Development (eTOD) along 95th between Halsted Street and Cottage Grove Avenue. The study is moving forward through a community-driven process that will result in recommendations and goals to guide corridor growth. Topic areas will include land uses, urban design, and policies to foster vibrant and transit-oriented mixed-use improvements. Once finalized in late 2024, the plan could be presented to the Chicago Plan Commission for formal adoption.

Anchored by the CTA Red Line station at its center and a Metra Electric Line station on the east, the two-mile long study area is characterized by low-scale commercial and residential buildings and Chicago State University, which includes multiple institutional facilities and open spaces. Most blocks adjacent to the corridor are comprised of owner-occupied, single-family homes.

In helping to foster equitable access to new development projects served by trains and buses, the plan will build upon previous community efforts to improve Washington Heights and Roseland, as well as nearby portions of Chatham, Burnside and Pullman.

The $1 million study is being funded primarily through a federal transit grant and City of Chicago funds. The planning process is being administered by the Chicago Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) in conjunction with AECOM, an infrastructure consulting firm.
