Metra Auburn Park Breaks Ground
June 22, 2022
|Last week, our design for Metra Auburn Park broke ground. Located in Auburn Gresham, the project was designed as an urban parkway, with a tree-lined plaza serving as an entryway to the new station. Sitting between a quiet neighborhood and a heavily trafficked corridor, the site is designed to provide a thoughtful green space with strong ties to the community.
“Today’s announcement is about redressing historical imbalances and doing right by an underserved community in an untapped market,” Collins [Sen. Jacqueline Collins] said. “…The people of Auburn Gresham and adjoining communities deserve this opportunity, and the people of Chicago deserve a public transit network that knits our city together, enables movement and growth and leaves no one behind.”
Within blocks of this new station will be our housing developments along 79th Street as part of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s INVEST South/West.
