New Lenox is a progressive, dynamic community strategically located in the southwest Chicago Metro area and situatied at a true crossroads of America, with vehicles on I-80 crossing the Midwest from coast to coast, and the new I-355 extension being the central means of access to the populous and affluent suburban north-south corridor of the Chicago Metro Area. Access, from both I-55 reaching to St. Louis and Memphis, as well as I-57 to the south, is only minutes away from the interchange. Our central location and excellent access make New Lenox a natural location for regional shopping, entertainment and hospitality.
Newly opened Silver Cross Hospital (Top 100 hospital for 7 consecutive years) boasting prestigious partnerships with University of Chicago Cancer Treatment Center, Children’s Memorial Hospital Outpatient facility and Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago has already made New Lenox a regional destination. The medical facilities alone are expected to drive 10,000 trips per day to the intersection of North Silver Cross Blvd. and Maple Road, where The Spring Creek Outlets of Chicago share a traffic signal and main entrances with the medical complex.
Strong demographics are supported by schools rated in the top 7% in the State, housing starts for 2011 ranked #3 in Will County and #13 in the Metro area, median household income over $100,000 and low foreclosure rates. Tourist and Entertainment venues in the area attract over 7,000,000 attendees each year. These factors make New Lenox the perfect place to develop, invest, open a business or buy a home.
