Midtown Crossing Apartments will be the newest addition to the OTR family. Designed as a 33-unit apartment building, it will be located on the east side of Graceland between Thacker Street and Prairie Avenue in downtown Des Plaines.  Its location will allow it to function as a transit-oriented facility located three blocks from Metra and PACE bus transportation.  Its central location in downtown Des Plaines positions it near shopping, schools, and the library.  This downtown location will work extremely well for our residents.
