Other recent or soon-to-occur changes include an Advance Auto Parts store moving into a new building along Northwest Highway, north of the Popeye’s Chicken. A second commercial building also will be constructed on the site. Enterprise Rent-A-Car opened this spring on the site of the former 84 Lumber along Rand Road and the former Idol’s site at Dundee and Rand Roads is to be redeveloped into a strip center with three retail/ restaurant spaces, including a Panera restaurant with a drive-through. “These are all the normal ebbs and flows of commerce. Firms relocate for their own business reasons, looking for the best location, and we are happy when they choose a new location that is still in Palatine,” Jacobs said. “They all have their own formulas and they know exactly where they want to be, right down to which side of the street they want, so if we can provide what they are looking for, they come here.”
As for downtown Palatine, he said it has been quite stable recently with businesses that have found their niche there and almost no open spaces. “The downtown businesses have been holding their own periodic events like ‘Girls on the Town’ and those have been successful so they are looking to build on them,” he said. Not far from the downtown area is the new Palatine Village Hall at 200 E. Wood St., which opened in late June. It replaces a building on the same site which, as Jacobs said, “was never designed to be a village hall.” “The new village hall will benefit everyone because it was designed to meet the needs of the people of Palatine with community rooms for meetings and gatherings and even a space right off the lobby that we can use for early voting,” he said. “It is a huge improvement,” Jacobs added.
