DEVELOPMENTS

Every development proposed is subject to Staff review, Plan Commission review, and consideration by the Village Board. Below is a list of entitlement projects in the Village of Plainfield.


Proposed Concepts


15233 S. Joliet Road
The owner of this circa-1870 blue Hall and Parlor structure is considering plans to renovate and expand the original building in lieu of demolition. The new construction would provide for flexibility between residential and business-transition commercial uses. The owner is refining plans prior to seeking a recommendation of approval from the Plan Commission. View project documents.

Vista Pointe South
The Village is working with a developer on a future single-family and townhome development on Ridge Road, south of Renwick and Walker. This new, master-planned community will contain over 300 hundred acres and 700+ homes. The project is already entitled and the Village is working with the developer on a revised land plan that would comply with the Village’s PUD and Single Family Design Standards.  View project documents.
  Warehouse District
The Village is currently considering a rezoning request and proposed planned development for three parcels located between Center Street and Eastern Avenue, south of the Canadian National railroad right-of-way. The rezoning request would allow for construction of a new office building to join the two existing warehouse/light industrial buildings, while the proposed planned development would eliminate certain industrial uses allowed by the current zoning and would allow other uses. The proposed planned development reflects the evolution of the two former industrial buildings, with such notable destination businesses locating there such as Chicago Brew Werks/Werk Force Brewing, Tailwinds Distilling, Ten Drops Coffee, and Warehouse: 109.
