Metro Landing of Swansea has received the Citizens for Modern Transit’s 2020 New Initiatives Award, honoring its exemplary commitment to championing transit in the St. Louis area and recognizing the project as an example of quality transit-oriented development (TOD), the first in the Metro East region.
Located immediately adjacent to the Swansea MetroLink Station in Swansea, Illinois, the development provides affordable housing for independent seniors and enables residents to have car-free transportation options via MetroLink and MetroBus to conveniently access amenities such as restaurants, retail, entertainment venues, and medical facilities throughout the bi-state region. The MetroBikeLink trail is also accessible from the Swansea Station, providing residents the opportunity to easily utilize the trail for exercise and recreation.
WJW is proud to be a team member on this project, and is honored that Metro Landing of Swansea has received this award!
