Creating a new gateway and energetic destination through integrated mixed-use design.

Mixed-use Development
MaeCliff Development
Warrenville, IL

Wight & Company was selected to design the MaeCliff Development, a 15-acre mixed-use commercial development that creates a new eastern gateway to Warrenville, Illinois. The development features two Hyatt hotels and includes five out-lots to be developed into a combination of office and retail space, with one lot designated for an upscale restaurant. The site topography presented a challenge to our design team due to its previous use as a quarry. A large retaining wall was designed to celebrate the history of the site and surrounding area. Unique stormwater design was needed because no overland flood route was available to the regional detention facility. We also included bioswales to encourage stormwater infiltration and reduce the need for storm sewers.
