While summer is winding down, things are gearing up in Downtown Lombard. The Village of Lombard has various construction projects and activities that will be occurring in the coming months, including:

Business Relocations

  • Salem True Medical Care is moving into a tenant space at 10 West St. Charles Road.

Building Permits and Business Expansions

Building permits have been issued for tenant buildouts at the following locations:

  • 126 W. St. Charles Road – Future home of Bone & Blossom Tattoo.
  • 132 W. St. Charles Road – Plans for an expanded restaurant preparation area and ice cream establishment.

Permits Under Review

Currently, we are reviewing permits for:

    101-109 S. Main Street (Lilac Station) – In addition to welcoming the new residents moving into the Lilac Station building, a lease has been signed and permits are under review for the MOTW Coffee Shop to be located within the western space and outside seating area at 2109 S. Main Street.  Holladay Properties continues to market the remaining commercial tenant spaces.

Upcoming Grant Considerations

The Village has received grant applications for two highly visible properties: 

  • 2-8 West St. Charles Road (proposed Grove Tavern Restaurant):  The site of the former Ash Tray Smoke Shop, and before that Buona Pizza, will be expanded and converted into a new evening dining opportunity.  The restaurant will be operated by the operators of the adjacent Egg House restaurant and the two establishments will be physically connected.  Plans also include an outside dining area.2-8 W St Charles Rd Rendering
  • 10-12 S.
