The Village of Hanover Park (the “Village”) is seeking Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) from developers interested in redeveloping a 6.3-acre commuter parking lot located directly south of the Hanover Park Metra Station (the “Site”). The Site is located in Hanover Park, DuPage County, Illinois and is bounded by County Farm Road on the east, Ontarioville Road on the south, the Hanover Park Animal Hospital property on the west, and the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks to the north (see image below).

The Site presents a unique opportunity for mixed-use transit-oriented development (TOD) within the Village Center area of Hanover Park, a suburb of Chicago. The Site is adjacent to the Metra Station and provides easy access to the Chicago Loop via the Milwaukee District/West Metra line. Commuters can arrive in downtown Chicago in as quickly as 48 minutes on express trains. The Site also benefits from frontage and good visibility along County Farm Road (which becomes Barrington Road north of the Site) and connects the Site with several suburban employment centers. See Section 2 of the full RFQ for additional Site information.

The Village Center area is a priority redevelopment area in the Village. The Village is seeking to diversify the mix of land uses to include a variety of new housing types, as well as enhanced retail and entertainment uses. The Village recently invested in an award-winning public project that includes a new streetscape along Ontarioville Road and Devon Avenue, as well as a new community gathering space at Ontarioville Plaza, which is located just west of the Site. See Section 3 of the full RFQ for additional information regarding the Village’s vision for the Village Center area.

The Village is undertaking a two-stage developer solicitation process to facilitate mixed-use residential development on the Site. The Village envisions that the project would align with TOD principles, including:

  • Higher level of density relative to existing development (up to 5.5 stories);
  • Active ground floor uses in appropriate areas;
  • Strong street presence and urban form; and
  • Rear or enclosed vehicle and bike parking. See Section 4 of the full RFQ for additional development guidelines.

Through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ), the Village is seeking to prequalify a limited number of respondents (with a goal of three) based on their demonstrated ability and financial capacity to complete a development of similar scale and scope. Shortlisted respondents will be invited to participate in a subsequent Request for Proposals (RFP) process that will require respondents to present a vision to implement comprehensive redevelopment of the Site.

This solicitation document is only available electronically. Those who would like to respond to this solicitation/bid opportunity must register through this page. Notifications of addenda will be sent to those registered to receive this electronic solicitation. The Village is not responsible for sending addenda or updates to this solicitation to individuals who have not registered.
