Trace on the Parkway
Edwardsville, Illinois is a thriving, vibrant community located in the Metro East — situated across the Mississippi River from the city of St. Louis. Edwardsville brings together history and progress with its 200-year-old downtown, growing subdivisions, flourishing small business culture, and lively community areas.
An incredible plot of land opened right in the heart of Edwardsville. The land is close to downtown, on the edge of the Madison County Transit Trails, and easily accessible to everything happening in the city. Our developers saw an opportunity to build something exciting and new that offers an enhanced, all-inclusive living experience. They envisioned a place with easy access to work and play. A space where you can enjoy living and be able to walk to on-site shopping, dining, recreation, working, and social spaces.
Trace provides a living experience with substance. Residents will find true community and vibrant living with all-inclusive access to amenities, social spaces, and so much more. Monthly rent includes all utilities, Wi-Fi, in-unit washer/dryer, access to workout facilities, the heated pool and hot tub, business center, and all other community amenities! There’s privacy when you need it and community when you want it. View our floor plans and social living pages to learn more about all-inclusive living on the Parkway.
Tracing our History
Edwardsville is rich with history, and we want our community to honor its past. We named our “settlement” after The Edwards Trace, a historic trail that led from Kaskaskia to what is now Peoria. The trail was heavily traveled and vital to trade in our town. The Edwards Trace and city of Edwardsville are both named after Ninian Edwards, the Illinois territory’s only governor from 1809 to 1818 who went on to serve as our first U.S. Senator and the third Governor of Illinois.
