This study is aimed at identifying the parking needs and possible financing opportunities for upgrading the existing park-n-ride facility in the Howard/Paulina (HP) area in Chicago, Illinois in conjunction with a proposed transit center development. The development entails a mixture of retail, office and residential land uses. Specifically, this study is intended to examine whether demand for parking spaces, either on a rental and/or purchase basis justifies a 500 car park and ride facility.
The Lake Calumet Feasibility Study proposes to locate Chicago's third airport in the area bounded by 95th Street on the north, the Calumet Expressway on the west, Interstate-80 on the south, and Indiana Harbor on the east.
The Feasibility Study presents six conclusions in its description of -- and justification for -- a Lake Calumet Airport location, including:
(1) A major air carrier facility is feasible within the ground and airspace of the Lake Calumet site;
This report presents results of an analysis of parking demand and supply in the Taylor Street commercial area from Morgan Street to Racine Avenue. The motivation for this analysis is the interest of the Taylor Street Business and Residents Committee in determining how to maximize the limited parking facilities in the area for the benefit of local businesses and residents.
The purpose of this project is to study the role of a regional airport authority and to determine if such an authority would be an advantageous vehicle for the City of Chicago to expand air transportation capacity. In addition, cities which have annexed land to build airports will also be studied to determine how development was controlled around the airport in order to allow for future expansion and increase in the number of flights.
