Mellody Farm is the long-awaited multi-use development featuring 285,000 sf of retail, including 12 buildings and a luxury multi-family residential apartment building with 260 units, internal parking structure and outdoor amenities courtyard and a 1,400 space parking lot.

The project was designed on ±50-acre (±35-acre developable due to wetlands and floodplain) located on the northeast corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Townline Road in Vernon Hills.

The services Manhard provided for this project include preliminary engineering design, surveying, stormwater management design, final engineering design, entitlement assistance, offsite roadway design and construction staking. Due to the size and scale of the project, permits were required from multiple agencies which required thorough coordination and communication with the development team, consultants and permitting agencies.
