Lombard seeking grocery store developers for location in Village’s historic downtown

2ColorLombardLogo (2)

The Village of Lombard will be seeking parties interested in pursuing a retail grocery store redevelopment opportunity for a Village owned property in Downtown Lombard.

As part of this effort, the Village will be releasing a “Request for Proposals” (RFP) document for experienced developers and grocery store operators to submit project proposals.  The RFP document is slated to be released on June 1.

Located at 101-109 South Main Street, the property is 2.19 acres in area and is a part of the Village’s Central Business District. The site has excellent frontage along Main Street and is centrally located with proximity to other retail commercial businesses, offices, and the Lombard Metra station.

The RFP process is intended to both gage private sector interest in a grocery store and to demonstrate that the Village is committed to working with a qualified development team on a project that enhances the downtown. The Village’s goal is to create the “best deal” for the Village and the development team.

Village President Keith Giagnorio is looking forward to the opportunity to see the site redeveloped that enhances the downtown. “In Lombard’s State of the Village in February, we said we hoped we would be able to bring a new business to the site and this is a step to fulfill that goal.”

Lombard District 4 Trustee Bill Johnston, who also Chairs the Village’s Economic and Community Development Committee is also interested in exploring a grocery store development for the property.  “Residents on the north side of Lombard have been seeking a full-service grocery store in the downtown area.  This effort will hopefully facilitate future engagement with a developer who can successfully establish a grocery store that builds upon our downtown business efforts.”

This report and other relative information about the Village can be viewed at www.villageoflombard.org/101SouthMain.   Interested parties should contact William Heniff, Lombard Community Development Director at (630) 620-5750 or heniffw@villageoflombard.org.
