Commercial New Lenox has all of the components that provide for a healthy commercial/retail economy. In 2015, 40 new businesses opened and New Lenox had 162 residential housing permits issued, the highest number in Will County. The rapid population growth in the area is resulting in the location of regional and national retailers along Route 30 and Laraway Road.
The future looks bright for continued growth as the economy improves. The interchange at I-355 and Route 6 near Silver Cross Hospital is positioned to capitalize on the availability of land and increasing traffic in the area. Heightened interest has been received for property at this interchange.
The Village is redeveloping one of its main intersections in the Village at Route 30 and Cedar Road. An 8,400 SF building that will house Durbin’s Restaurant, Fleckenstein’s Bakery, and Zembar Jewelers is expected to be completed in 2017. A CVS will also be built on property west of the 8,400 SF building. Plans put in place pro-actively by the Village form the framework for such projects and others along Route 30.
Industrial New Lenox has a strong industrial foundation anchored by Cherry Hill Business Park. Located only 35 miles from downtown Chicago and within 5 miles of the CenterPoint Intermodal facility, New Lenox is the perfect choice for industrial users. Transportation access is key to any successful project in this market and New Lenox offers direct interstate access to I-80 and is only 11 miles from both I-55 and I-57, affording ease of travel in any direction. Rail access is another advantage to New Lenox when being considered for industrial sites.
