New Development Blooming in Lombard: Community Development Update

construction building small

Lombard’s Community Development Department issued more than 2,600 building permits in 2017. These permits translated to more than $233 million in value. Here are a few other interesting facts and updates about the state of development in Lombard:

Downtown Lombard Area:

  • Lombard Pharmacy Relocating: Lombard Pharmacy is moving from 805 S. Main to the former site of Carlson Paint Glass and Art Store at 211 S. Main Street. This project includes the demolition of the former art store, and the building of a new pharmacy location, including a drive through window. This new location is anticipated to open in late summer.

  • 101 S. Main Street: The Village is accepting proposals from qualified developers for the lot located on Main Street, just south of the train tracks. This prime location has drawn interest from developers. The Request for Proposals (RFP) closes on April 16, 2018, after which thwe Village will begin the proposal review process.

  • New Homes in Downtown Lombard: Airhart Construction is constructing several new single family homes at the intersection of Grove and N. Park Ave. in downtown Lombard.

  • Windsor Place Subdivision: Emerald Homes is constructing twelve new single family homes at the site that was once home to Allied Drywall Material, 222 E. Windsor Ave., just west of the Lombard Post Office.

  • Oakview Estates Townhomes:  Construction on 10 new townhome units in three building will start this spring at 400 E. St. Charles Road.

  • Downtown Restaurants:  Construction work on the new Bonfils Black Restaurant, located at the former Slick & BJ’s retail space, is continuing with an anticipated opening this summer.  Additionally interior work is progressing for Charred, a restaurant to be located at 105 W. St. Charles Road.

  • Downtown Lombard Recap: The Village continues to invest in our downtown. While it’s not the Village’s role to open businesses, we do serve as a facilitator and we help assist interested business owners in their personal decision to open their business, in downtown Lombard and throughout the Village. We are happy to say that in just the past the years the Village has seen the expansion of Shannon’s Deli and their new rooftop seating area, the opening of Babcock Grove House, renovation and occupancy of the historic hotel building at Park and St. Charles, the new Marquette Kitchen and Tap, Paradiso boutique at 5 S. Park Ave, Ruff Life dog store at 22 W. St. Charles, Balkan Bakery and Café at 14 W. St. Charles Rd., Schiller Real Estate store front at 9 S. Park Ave., Clark Orthodontics at 23 N. Main, and Sky Centers expansion at 112 W. St. Charles, and more to come! Through these efforts, residents and businesses will recognize that there are fewer vacancies in the downtown than at any point in the last decade.

  • The Village granted more than $370,000 and countless hours of staff time to downtown Lombard businesses, in the past three years alone and additional grant dollars are available for qualifying businesses.

Yorktown Area

  • Yorktown Commons: The firth two phases of the new Yorktown Commons planned development, located on the north side of Yorktown Shopping Center, is currently under construction. The area will soon have two new high-end rental properties, with occupancy expected to start in early 2019. The Elan development will consist of 295 luxury apartments while the Overture development will have 175 residences marketed toward active senior living.

  • New Holiday Inn Express: The new 96 room Holiday Inn Express is approved for St. Regis Drive, just north of 22nd Ave., behind Greek Islands Restaurant. This development is anticipated to open in 2019.

  • Butterfield TIF: Previously owned by the Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, the 27-acre site located on Butterfield Road, just east of Yorktown Shopping Center, is currently for sale. A new Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District has been approved by the Village Board, meaning that a portion of the future taxes generated by new development activity will be invested back into the designated TIF area for qualified improvement that would benefit both the Butterfield Road Corridor and the Yorktown area.

Other Developments Around Town

  • High Point Shopping Center: Two buildings on the east side of the shopping center will be demolished in order to make room for a new LA Fitness gym location. Plans for this new 35,000 square-foot location include an indoor pool. This location is planned to open in 2019.

  • Finley Subdivision Project: The property west of Finley at Hickory, was sold by the DuPage County Health Department to Oak Creek Capital Partners and the site will be redeveloped with 17 new single family homes.  The petition was a matter of a workshop session on April 18, 2016 and formal public hearings before the Plan Commission on May 16 and August 15, 2016 (PC 16-08 & 16-08A). There was a public notice sign placed on the property during that process, and all notification requirements for the project were met. The project was originally approved by the Village Board on August 18, 2018, and was later granted a one-year time extension in 2017. With Spring finally arriving, construction is now starting on the project. Throughout 2018, the requisite utility and stormwater improvements will be constructed and single family home construction may begin later this year.

  • 777 E. Butterfield Road: In addition to the recently opened Starbucks, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza and Honeygrow Restaurants are under construction, with their opening in 2018.

  • Yard House Restaurant:  Construction is continuing on a new Yard House Restaurant to be located at 2301 Fountain Square Drive.

  • CPSA Upgrades: College Preparatory School of America began upgrades to their campus located at 331 W. Madison St., last Summer. Upgrades include a new 33,000 square-foot high school facility along with a new stormwater detention facility and parking lot.

  • Lombard Park District Recreation Facility:  Construction continues to complete a new indoor recreation facility at Madison Meadows Park, with an anticipated opening in late June, 2018.
