With rolling hills and bluffs, Cedar Lake could have very upscale residential areas. Is there not a market for expansive development in this area?

I believe it is one of the fastest growing towns in the Midwest at the moment. Census bureau estimates 10% growth in just the last two years. I live quite far away on the Lake so not very acquainted with Cedar Lake, but it is apparently seeing plenty of development

I’ll a keep watch on Cedar Lake. Seemingly a lot of development is happening in nearby St. John.

The main reason it has not developed much faster in the past was because most of the growth was in the Center township side due to the allure of being in CP schools but a Cedar Lake address (which meant a little greater affordability). Also, the Hanover Schools were not really highly regarded until more recent years and being able to offer more especially when they split the Jr/Sr high school into a separate middle school and high school. The area of St. John that is in Hanover township has grown because you still have the perceived allure of having a St. John address despite Hanover schools and there is still a premium for that. As new housing gets more expensive in general, Cedar Lake has grown and there is now more development west of 41 and in the next 20 years will likely reach very well to the state line. As long as the schools stay in good ratings and buildings stay upkept/expanded/renovated, growth will still occur. In my opinion, if the South Shore was extended to Lowell years ago, growth would have exploded for sure. Cedar Lake reputation has gotten better as a more..."sophisticated"..populace continues to move in lol.

As one that had jumped on the bandwagon in 2014, I built with Olthof in the Centennial Neighborhood when it was about a third of the size it ended up at now.

The main draw was the fact that the Illiana Expressway was slotted for construction to connect I-55 in Illinois and I-65 (with another phase to extend all the way to LaPorte). I saw the potential of connecting a lot more infrastructure and that the Lake would draw even higher than it has already found in the past 10 years.

The fact that Illinois squashed the plan hindered progress at the lightning speed, but it also allowed for a more responsible infrastructural change that all these larger subdivisions cause problems with. I'm sure there's still a lot more to put in place, but without the Major Transit adds, it still continues to bust at the seams.

We moved up to Dyer for an easier commute, but we still visit often!
