Default master planned communities

does anyone know of any master planned communities in which to live if working in downtown chicago? I would like a driving commute of no more than 45 minutes if a train is not possible- thanks.

Budget?

If budget is not a problem, the first thing that comes to my mind is Riverside. From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Riverside is arguably one of the first planned communities in the United States, designed in 1869 by Frederick Law Olmsted. The village was incorporated in 1875. The Riverside Landscape Architecture District, an area bounded by 26th St., Harlem and Ogden Aves., the Des Plaines River, and Forbes Rd., was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970.
Riverside is about 14 miles away from Chicago (About 20-30 mins driving)

Arrow thanks

Has anybody ever heard of Grande Reserve in yorkville, I think this is a newer planned community? I'm just wondering what it's like and if yorkville would be too long of a commute to downtown chicago? thanks
