Lake Ave Cottages

Peoria, Illinois 'Pocket Neighborhood'

Lake Avenue Cottages is the first of its kind 'pocket neighborhood' in the region.  The plan, designed by Farnsworth Group, orients the traditionally inspired homes, and their front porches, towards various 'commons' located throughout the neighborhood.  To enhance the walkability garages are accessed off of rear alleys and are intentionally kept narrow to encourage pedestrians to congregate on the front, or social, side of the homes.
