Morningside Group’s Prairie Town Center is attracting a mixture of first-time homebuyers and young families drawn to the development’s central Oak Lawn location. The Metra train station is just a short walk away for easy access to downtown, as are a variety of stores and restaurants.
Homes at Prairie Town Center that are currently available for immediate delivery range from $213,900 for a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom home to $322,900 for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home. The price includes one heated indoor parking space and an individual storage locker. Exterior parking is also available.
The homes at Prairie Town Center will have oversized windows to maximize daylight and a private balcony with panoramic views. Some home plans feature 9-foot ceilings in all of the living spaces, and walk-in closets or dressing rooms in the master bedrooms.
Standard features at Prairie Town Center include gourmet kitchens with 42-inch upper cabinets. There are handcrafted laminate countertops with integral backsplash and a stainless steel double bowl sink. The appliance package includes a Delux refrigerator with glass shelves, a self-cleaning gas range with sealed burners and a built-in microwave with a recirculation fan and filter.
The bathrooms have cultured-marble countertops in a variety of colors and buyers can choose from a selection of vanity styles and finishes. The master bathroom plans have either a steel bathtub or shower, or a large soaker bathtub and shower. There is ceramic tile flooring and bathtub surround, Kohler elongated-bowl toilets and Moen single-handle faucets.
The large lobby has a cable-TV-monitored intercom to screen visitors, and each unit has a solid-core entry door with a viewer, deadbolt and door knocker. There is individually-controlled, high-efficiency heating and electric central air. The brick and stone façade building has barrier-free common areas with two elevators. There is a trash chute on every floor. The looped hot water supply system provides rapid hot water availability and the fire-resistant structure is protected by a fire sprinkler system in every room. The sound-resistant construction features cork underlayment beneath all hard surface floors, except bathrooms.
Prairie Town Center will also have two single-story retail buildings featuring 18,000 square feet of retail space just steps away from the condominiums with frontage on 95th Street. The downtown location in Oak Lawn’s central business district gives residents immediate access to Village services and the state-of-the-art library. Grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants and banks are located within a three-block radius.
