The Cascade Plan covers the area west of the Illinois River, north of I-74, and east of OSF. It is a logical expansion of the River Trail Drive Plan, which creates new housing overlooking the Illinois River and Lake. The name "Cascade" refers to the concept of opening up vistas of the Lake from streets leading down to the River.
Several buildings in the past have blocked River views - this plan calls for opening up and preserving or restoring the vistas where possible. The development of the River Trail Drive Development should improve market demand for housing in this great neighborhood. The area will be conserved and promoted as a great urban infill community.
