A lot has changed over the course of the past two years at Mellody Farm. It seems like yesterday when the Village of Vernon Hills captured construction from above, offering everyone a mere glimpse of what they had to look forward to.
It has since evolved into a thriving neighborhood where urban sensibility, modern finishes, and diverse dining and shopping options converge.
Visitors to the multi-use development have taken to social media and various other web sites to applaud the unique design and overall feel of the community.
“The mix of stores and restaurants at Mellody Farm help to bring some additional upscale dining to this area of Vernon Hills,” writes a Yelp reviewer. “I really like the public art and aesthetics of Mellody Farm…it’s worth a visit due to the options available.”
Another Yelp reviewer pointed to the high-quality music produced by outdoor Bose speakers, saying it made her feel really festive and got her in the holiday spirit.
Throughout the summer, Mellody Farm has hosted a variety of free, family-friendly events to build upon an already strong sense of community and invite newcomers to enjoy the neighborhood, all leading to the pinnacle grand opening event.
