Preliminary projects are underway in preparation for construction of the Metro 19 apartment development at the southeast corner of Lawrence Avenue and Irving Park Road. A project to widen the Rose Drive East entrance to the Roselle Metra Station North parking lot to create a two-lane entrance and exit to the station is underway. The current exit to the lot, Rose Drive West, will permanently close after Rose Drive East is widened, as it is in the footprint of the new Metro 19 development. Commuters should follow posted detour signs for access to the North commuter parking lot.
The Village Board voted in early 2021 to approve the $80 million transit oriented Metro 19 luxury apartment complex development, which will be located north of the Roselle Metra station and adjacent to the commuter parking lot. The project area includes part of the existing Metra daily-fee parking lot, the former Ray Graham site, and some of the underutilized land near the BMO Harris Bank location on the corner. The development’s 5-story parking garage will include 540 spaces, with 153 spaces dedicated permanently to Metra riders.
This type of development was specifically recommended in the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted in 2016.
