Urban Design  :  Lakeview Area Master Plan

Lakeview Area Master PlanChicago, IL

LAMP (Lakeview Area Master Plan) was commissioned by the the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce to proactively plan for business, economic development, and sustainability initiatives in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. The plan creates a hub for urban scale sustainable design innovation and improvements while enhancing the pedestrian environment, strengthening business opportunities, and mending the urban ecosystem. The design is centered around the LowLine, a new walking path beneath the existing Brown Line El tracks, reconfiguration of the LAB intersection, promoting ground water recharge throughout the district, a plan to increase urban wildlife, reduce light pollution, and improve bicycle infrastructure, including opportunities for bike sharing.
