[ARCHIVED] Community Development Update

Social Image Community Development

The Village continues working in partnership with Holladay Properties on their building permit submittal of the Lilac Station project at 101-109 S. Main Street, in downtown Lombard.  We are pleased that construction on the property is scheduled to start this Spring.

As a key component of this project, the Village has been notified that Holladay Properties and the Prairie Food Co-op have entered into a lease for a 11,000 square foot grocery store on the site. The Village has long believed that this redevelopment may serve as a catalyst for other such projects in the future.  Furthermore, the placement of a grocery store at that location will meet an identified need and desire of the community. 

The property redevelopment was a goal in the Village’s Strategic Plan in 2016 as well as the Downtown Lombard Revitalization Guidebook.   A 2018 Request for Proposals (RFP) effort by the Village sought qualified developers to submit proposals with a preference for plans with a local grocery store.  The approved site development will also include a 116 unit residential project and a restaurant space.

We are excited and look forward to assisting both parties as the project becomes a reality.
