PROSPECT HEIGHTS MAYOR’S WELCOME

W

Welcome to the 2016 Community Guide & Business Directory! Prospect Heights continues to evolve and grow, with exciting economic and retail developments in the works. Currently, Prospect Heights has more than $100 million in development currently under construction. The city scored some big wins starting in late 2015 in terms of economic retail developments. Here are just a few that represent $100 million in investments. Ruffolo Fresh Market recently opened near the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue and Palatine Road in a 17,000-square-foot space that caters to the more than 2,000 area residents. In order to encourage Ruffolo’s investment in Prospect Heights and help the store get off the ground, the Prospect Heights city council approved a sales tax rebate program to help him get started. He brings 22 new jobs to the community. At the other end of town, in an 87,000-square-foot space at 1241 N. Rand Rd., Tony’s Finer Foods has opened its 13th store in our city, adding 200 jobs. Two other sales-tax generators are the recently completed Player’s Pub and Grill at 1250 S. River Rd. and the soon-to-be-completed renovation at the Ramada Inn Plaza at the midway point of the Chicago Executive Airport on Milwaukee Avenue. Player’s Pub is an off-trackbetting facility owned by Hawthorne Race Course. Other ongoing projects in Prospect Heights include the construction of

a 700-unit, $20 million Uncle Bob’s indoor storage facility on Rand Road. Also, Chase Bank will relocate to our city from Randhurst, building a new home and hiring more employees. In March, Greenbrier Senior Living started construction on Greenbrier of Prospect Heights. This $30 million project is a 101-unit assisted living and memory care community that will be located near the intersection of Elmhurst and Palatine Roads. It will include a three-story, 69-unit assisted living facility, as well as a one-story, 32 unit building for memory care patients. As 2016 progresses, city aldermen will continue to call on existing businesses in their wards to act as trouble-shooters and ombudsmen when needed in order to keep businesses happy in Prospect Heights. In addition, city staff will continue to seek opportunities to sell or develop the open 12-acre industrially-zoned parcel between Piper Lane and Palatine Road, across from the Chicago Executive Airport. During the next 12 months we will continue our focus; progress with new development and the beautification of our city will be our most important products.
