Beginning SUMMER 2021
Maple Leaf Crossing will be located at Calumet Ave. and 45th Street, in Munster. The initial phase of the project, expected to begin with demolition of the current site in July 2019, is expected to include several commercial buildings, including space for professional office, retail, medical, restaurant, warehousing and container architecture.
A highly designed and welcomed addition to Munster
Maple Leaf Crossing will create a highly stylized development drawing from our heritage of steel and rail. Incorporating container architecture, Maple Leaf Crossing will offer unique local shops, first-class professional space and an extension of the Monon Trail path through the middle of campus providing bikers, walkers and businesspeople with a fresh place to meet for lunch, shopping or a night on the town.
