What We Love Most

Des Plains offers a lovely suburban feel while maintaining a good mix of hidden gems and places to eat, just like a city. Downtown Des Plaines is the Metropolitan Square, a new, mixed-use lifestyle center one block away from the Metra station. The Square hosts 135 condos and lofts built around car-friendly and pedestrian-friendly streets. The main street features local eateries and shops. A new 40,000-square-foot grocery store anchors the downtown area. The Cook County Forest Preserve features miles and miles of multi-use trails if you prefer to get away from the hustle and bustle. There's also unrestricted open space for family dogs to run and play.
