Proposed Mixed Use Neighborhood in East Peoria's Levee District
Center Street Commons is a proposed infill mixed-use neighborhood in the burgeoning Levee District of East Peoria. Farnsworth Group provided a plan for the property that incorporates the thoughtful use of open space and ‘complete streets’ to soften the overall density, promote walkability, and to create strong pedestrian connections to existing uses within the Levee District.
The project, which utilizes traditional neighborhood design principles, will be a mixture of residential, office, retail, and commercial uses which align with ongoing redevelopment initiatives throughout the district. In addition to site design and preliminary engineering, Farnsworth Group also prepared preliminary architectural designs for the various buildings for the proposed neighborhood. These designs utilize traditional massings and materials which are in harmony with the overall placemaking vision for the site.
