Prairie Town Center | Winter Easy Challenge to Face at Prairie Town Center

OAK LAWN, IL –  Braving the elements to complete the simplest errands can be daunting in a Chicago winter. It can be depressing to get into a cold car and travel miles to complete a series of errands while dealing with frigid temperatures, snow and ice.

However, residents living at the Arbor Court and Prairie Town Center developments in Oak Lawn, just off 95th Street, face the Chicago winter without batting an eye. That’s because everything they need is practically right outside their door.

“Everything a person needs is available within a few blocks of our developments,” says Barbara Morris, Director of Sales. “It’s a huge plus for our buyers to have everything in such close proximity to their homes.”

Residents can walk or drive two blocks to the Freshline Grocery Store. Residents who work downtown walk a block-and-a-half to the Metra train station. Thirsty respites from the winter blues can be found at Deja Brew, Goal Post, and the Vino Tinto wine bar.

Other neighborhood amenities within a two-block radius include Starbucks, Potbelly Sandwich Works, Cold Stone Creamer, Harris Bank, Citibank and Dunkin’ Donuts. Those who feel like watching a movie on a cold winter night can choose from a wide variety of titles at the Hollywood Video rental store. Those who prefer to position themselves next to a roaring fire immersed in a good book don’t have to go far either, with the Oak Lawn Public Library conveniently located right across the street.

Holiday gatherings for the Village are also easily accessible at the Village Green, located adjacent to the library.

There’s also no need to worry about car engines not starting in the morning, thanks to indoor heated parking offered to all buyers at Prairie Town Center and Arbor Court. Residents pull right into the garage and take an elevator to their spacious condo without going outside.

In addition to being centrally located in downtown Oak Lawn, these developments are located only two miles east of Chicago Ridge Mall, while a Target and Home Depot can be found to the west.

In case of emergencies, the police and fire stations are located a block away, while Advocate Christ Medical Center is located a short distance away on 95th Street.

Since launching sales in late-2006, phase one of Prairie Town Center is more than 80 percent sold, with occupancy set for spring 2008. The second phase of Prairie Town Center recently held its grand opening weekend and is slated for occupancy in spring 2009.

At Prairie Town Center, homes range in size from 844 square feet to 1,461 square feet and are one bedroom and one-and-half-baths, two bedroom and two baths, or three bedrooms and two baths. Prices range from $185,900 to $327,900 (prices subject to change without notice). The price includes one heated, indoor parking space and an individual storage locker.  Exterior parking is also available.

Only eight homes remain at Arbor Court and are available for immediate move-in. These are all two-bedroom, two-bath homes (one with a study) and are priced from $265,900 to $315,900.

Prairie Town Center and Arbor Court are joint ventures of Chicago-based builder and developer Morningside Group and Oakbrook Terrace, IL-based Mid-America Development Partners.
