On behalf of the Skokie Chamber of Commerce & Industry, its 650-plus member businesses and our board of directors, I am very pleased to introduce the 2017-2018 Skokie Community Guide and Business Directory. There is a lot to showcase and be proud of in our community. The village of Skokie is strong and vibrant. We owe this to many factors including the stability of the business community and the vision of our village management and elected officials.

We hope that you find value in this publication and that you look toward our member businesses when you are looking for a product or service. Should you have any questions or comments regarding the Skokie Community Guide or any other member benefits or services, please feel free to contact the Chamber office at (847) 673-0240 or email us at info@skokiechamber.org.

The businesses in Skokie play a vital role in the economic health of our community. The Village of Skokie has a solid industrial, manufacturing and technology presence, along with a retail mix that draws people into the community from throughout the metropolitan area. This strong business presence contributes to the tax base of the village, keeping residential taxes low for our 68,000 residents.

Economic Development

Exciting new developments and continued enhancements of existing commercial areas can be found throughout Skokie. From the thriving Westfield Old Orchard area to booming Touhy Avenue, within iconic Downtown Skokie and the renowned Illinois Science + Technology Park, and along Dempster Street, Skokie Boulevard and other major thoroughfares, highly favorable investments are everywhere, according to Leslie Murphy, economic development specialist. A number of business districts throughout the community are experiencing redevelopment, revitalization and resurgence. Building permit activity in Skokie for 2016 continued its robust trend of recent years, and 2017 is on pace to be another record-breaking year! DOWNTOWN SKOKIE Residents and visitors continue to rediscover and enjoy all that pedestrian-friendly Downtown Skokie offers, with the eclectic mix of colorful street furniture (check out the bright red Downtown Skokie benches), teal “S” bike racks, yellow accents on bus shelters and eyecatching exterior murals. Downtown also offers easy access to public transit via the CTA Yellow Line (Oakton Station), plenty of free parking and recently completed village TIF-funded infrastructure improvements, including new street lighting, sidewalks with paver accents, enhanced landscaping, way-finding signage and more. Downtown Skokie is currently home to over 23 ethnic and traditional restaurants (including several Michelin-rated establishments), thanks in

part to the village’s special incentive program to help attract new and enhance existing restaurants to the area. New Vietnamese, Italian, Latino, European and Indian eateries have recently been added to the already diverse culinary Downtown Skokie scene. Longtime popular restaurants such as Village Inn Sports Bar, Tub Tim Thai, Alexander’s, and El Fuego Mexican Cuisine continue to enjoy great success. Distinctive new retailers have opened up in recent months, including Panino Blitz, Sushi Hanna Café, Law Offices of Demetrius Trivizas, Imperial Realty, Metro PCS Cellular, SAWA and Ignite Gaming, joining the many established businesses in the downtown shopping district, such as Marge’s Flowers, Skokie Ace Hardware, North Branch Yoga, Crafty Beaver, Edward Jones Investments, Print Xpress, and Aw Yeah! Comics. The unique, upscale Floral Avenue housing development has brought new families to the downtown community as eco-friendly and sustainable single-family residences have been added just blocks from the entertainment, dining and retail downtown hub. Phase Two of the 20-home development is almost complete. Additional new housing and mixed-use projects are being considered along Lincoln Avenue, Oakton Street and Skokie Boulevard. Now in its fourth year, the Skokie Theatre continues to bring a wide variety of quality professional entertainment to Downtown Skokie via MadKap Productions. Downtown Skokie is the place to be, so don’t miss the Skokie Farmers Market, Wednesdays on the Green, Fourth of July Parade, Skokie Backlot Bash and, new this year, the Brown Street Block Party in September. For more information on all Downtown Skokie businesses and special events, visit downtownskokie.com.

THE ILLINOIS SCIENCE + TECHNOLOGY PARK The Illinois Science + Technology Park, a 24-acre life-science campus directly adjacent to Downtown Skokie, was recently purchased by Skokie-based American Landmark Properties, the former co-owner of Chicago’s Willis Tower. American Landmark Properties plans to produce an additional 136,000 square feet of office and wet lab space in addition to the already leased 450,000 square feet at the park, which employs approximately 1,500 workers.

Across from the mall, HomeGoods is now open for business at The Shops at Orchard Place, while Burlington Coat Factory, Bob’s Discount Furniture, Culver’s Frozen Custard, Chick fil-A and AAA Travel recently opened their doors along Skokie Boulevard. The Goddard School and Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin Robbins opened in 2016 across the street from Skokie Hospital at the corner of Golf and Gross Point Roads.

The facility boasts convenient access to Northwestern University and the Midwest’s technology and life science business environment. The 25 company tech park serves a wide range of businesses ranging from incubator startups, early commercialization users, European and Asian branches, and large corporations such as NorthShore University HealthSystem. WESTFIELD OLD ORCHARD/ SKOKIE BLVD. AND GOLF ROAD RETAIL DISTRICT Westfield Old Orchard transforms a simple trip to the mall into a seasonal shopping experience. With an inviting park-like atmosphere amid 130 specialty retailers, two soon-to-be-expanded theaters, and multiple dining choices, Westfield Old Orchard is Chicago’s premier destination to experience four seasons of style.

Also known as Illinois Route 58, Dempster Street bisects the village and is a major thoroughfare carrying commuters from the lakefront to the east, past the O’Hare corridor in the far western suburbs. The Illinois Department of Transportation estimates an average of 35,000 vehicles travel through Skokie on Dempster Street on a daily basis. There is a great diversity of economic activity on Dempster Street, including financial institutions, restaurants, office complexes, religious institutions and independently owned retail specialty shops. Skokie will soon welcome a new 33,000-square-foot “flexible-format” Target store at the southwest corner of Dempster and Bronx, just east of the Yellow Line CTA Station and the iconic Starbucks store located in an old train depot.

Skokie is an original Chicago suburb that continues to thrive. With beautiful parks and forest preserves, awardwinning schools and proximity to Chicago, this community combines big-city opportunities with suburban charm. Skokie has been named as one of America’s top 100 best places to live by Livability.com, a website that ranks quality of life and travel amenities of America’s small and mid-sized cities. Cited for its educational opportunities, diversity and high community/civic involvement, Skokie is among only a very few Illinois communities to rank on the list. Skokie was recently included in Crain’s list of the 10 best suburbs in which to buy a home, and the April 2017 edition of Chicago Magazine featured Skokie prominently in the cover article “Where to Buy Now: 22 Neighborhoods and

www.skokiechamber.org

IL-SKO-CW-17 Design.indd 15

Living In Skokie Suburbs Where You Can Still Find a Great Deal.” Skokie is featured in the “Move-Up Buyers” section of the article. The narrative gives Skokie a nod for good schools, proximity to Chicago, great park district and library, the Skokie Farmers Market and more. The March 2017 edition of Chicago Magazine included a field guide to a selection of Skokie’s numerous attractions, shops and restaurants, including the award-winning Libertad that is among four Michelin-rated restaurants in Downtown Skokie. Walkcore.com ranks Skokie a “Walker’s Paradise,” meaning residents can accomplish many errands by foot. In a recent citizen survey, Skokie residents gave the community high marks for its paths and walking trails, ease of travel by walking and also ease of travel by car and bicycle.

Housing

Skokie offers a wide variety of housing options that appeal to every lifestyle. Quiet, tree-lined streets feature affordable colonials, ranches and Chicago-style bungalows as well as upscale new-construction. Condominium buyers also find a wealth of options, including a number of large new-construction developments with luxurious amenities. Are you house hunting? The array of choices in the Chicago area can be perplexing. The Crain’s Chicago Business publication sifted through a mountain of data in 77 different communities to highlight 10 suburban and eight urban locales with good schools, low crime and easy transportation. Cited as a “Suburban Melting Pot,” Skokie was named the eighth “best place to buy a home.” Crain’s highlighted the community’s high quality schools, easy transportation network and “stores from small boutiques in its revitalized downtown to glittering fashion stores in Old Orchard Shopping Mall.” They named Skokie as a “very desirable place to live,” with diverse housing stock ranging from multi-family dwellings, bungalows, tri-level and ranch homes with a distinct mid-century feel.

In the heart of Skokie’s downtown on historic Floral Avenue, Streetscape, LLC, is finishing out its 27 singlefamily homes that were part of a two-phase development project. The first homes were completed in 2015. The Streetscape homes with beautiful front porches, and courtyard-style homes, are a throwback to the old Chicago bungalow and Arts and Crafts style houses that dotted Chicago’s urban landscape in the beginning of the 20th century. The upscale, quality homes are built on small lots, but designed with optimal efficiency. Just blocks from grocery stores, a world-class library, unique specialty shops and restaurants, parks and a public transit station, Floral Avenue’s greatest asset is location. For buyers hoping to call Skokie home, the Village of Skokie offers an enticing mix of big city benefits, cultural diversity and hometown charm. The majority of Skokie homes were constructed in the 1950s, 60s and 70s along with several new projects, teardowns and renovations in the last decade. Property values are recovering at a brisk rate in Skokie since the 2008 economic downturn, and investors and primary homeowners alike continue to purchase homes at steadfast rate. Home buyers looking for that urban feel can choose to live near the exciting downtown district that offers several restaurants, bars, retail, gathering places and a live theater venue.

The two-theater complex designed by architect Graham Gund opened in 1996. “Skokie’s diverse and eclectic entertainment venues appeal to all types of audiences and draw patrons from throughout the Chicagoland area, thanks in part to its prime North Shore location bordering Chicago and immediately adjacent to the Edens Expressway,” Pauken said. “We’re thrilled to be a part of such a vibrant community with such diverse tastes.” The center for performing arts hosts approximately 200,000 annually for hundreds of events including entertainers Chris Isaacs, Mavis Staples, Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Bob Newhardt, Queen Latifah, Bill Maher, the Joffrey Ballet, River North and Hubbard Street dance

companies and a variety of local cultural and civics performances and events including college and high school plays, graduation ceremonies, dance academy recitals and lectures. Among one of Skokie’s favorite entertainment venues is the landmark Skokie Theatre that is under the ownership of MadKap Productions. MadKap is led by partners Wendy Kaplan and Wayne Mell. They both have a wide breadth of experience bringing dynamic and quality entertainment to the northern suburbs over the past decade. The program schedule for the Skokie Theatre features a variety of exciting and eclectic productions, including intimate musical performances, theater, comedy, movie presentations, children’s theater and more.

Meet Community Animal Rescue Effort Community Animal Rescue Effort got its start 30 years ago as a small group of people dedicated to saving homeless cats and dogs in Evanston. Now this allvolunteer, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization will be expanding its mission to the North Shore. By the end of 2017, C.A.R.E. expects to open its own “forever home” at 4927 Main St., Skokie (at Main and Niles Center Road). C.A.R.E.’s Mission C.A.R.E.’s three goals are to rehome companion pets into safe, healthy, lifelong homes; to serve as a pet-focused educational and counseling resource for the community we serve; and to work to reduce pet overpopulation. As a “limited access, unlimited stay” organization, adoptable animals can remain with C.A.R.E. until the right home is found. C.A.R.E. believes every adoptable pet deserves a safe and loving forever home. Our approach balances the needs and expectations of the adopters we serve with the well-being of the animals we place. Special care is taken to match potential adopters with the right pets. C.A.R.E. continues its commitment by being a ready resource even after the pet is in its new home.

Events

The Village of Skokie is known for its many festivals and celebrations – filling the calendar with more fests than any other North Shore community. The community bubbles with excitement and an abundance of special events throughout the entire year! APRIL

Celebrations begin with Skokie’s Spring Greening. The event, which just finished its seventh year, promotes sustainable and green living. Features include a recycling event, an indoor fair featuring green products and services, the sale of repurposed crafts, family activities and music. MAY The Skokie Festival of Cultures celebrates Skokie’s rich diversity. Since its inception in 1991, the event has become one of the premier ethnic festivals in the state, attracting more than 38,000 visitors each year. Guests enjoy two days of ethnic folk music and dance, food, unique arts, children’s games, a merchandise grand bazaar and dozens of cultural booths. JUNE Celebrating its 10th year, the Taste of Skokie Valley features the mouthwatering flavors of Skokie’s finest restaurants and specialty shops. The celebration of gourmet food at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie is a charitable event co-sponsored by the Rotary Club of Skokie Valley and the Chamber of Commerce, benefiting various community causes. Wednesdays on the Green is presented by the Skokie Chamber of Commerce & Industry in cooperation with the Village of Skokie, Skokie Park District, Skokie Public Library and the Downtown Skokie Merchants Alliance to bring another summer of free festivities beginning at 7 p.m. from June to August. Bring a blanket or folding chair to enjoy a variety of musical entertainment and family fun. The sounds of summer come alive in this wonderful open-air venue. In addition, many Downtown Skokie restaurants offer specials and dining discounts on Wednesday nights throughout the summer. For more information, visit www.wednesdaysonthegreen.com. The Village Green is located between the village hall and the Skokie Public Library at 5127 Oakton St. All performances will be presented rain or shine, with rain locations being held in the Petty Auditorium of the Skokie Public Library.

JULY The North Shore Festival of the Arts attracts more than 90,000 art lovers to the Skokie community each July. The annual event features an abundance of fine artwork, live music and more. Situated at the outdoor Westfield Old Orchard shopping mall, the event benefits the Skokie Chamber of Commerce & Industry. This Festival is organized by Amdur Productions and is one of the finest juried Art Festivals in the Chicagoland Metropolitan Area. AUGUST Skokie’s Backlot Bash, closes the summer season, draws 55,000-60,000 people to an action-packed downtown summer street festival. The name “Backlot” pays tribute to downtown Skokie’s heritage as a major silent film industry back lot set between 1907 and 1915. Each year, the Backlot Bash will feature more than 15 hours of free live music – both regional and national acts – on a main stage. The event also features an amusement park/carnival, 5K run, silent movies at the historic Skokie Theatre, classic auto show, business expo and sidewalk sale, teen activities, bingo, food and beer, the Rotary Club pancake breakfast and more.
