Development Opportunities


Though Wheeling corporate borders allow for modest municipal expansion through annexation, there continues to be a considerable amount of property available for infill commercial and industrial development and redevelopment.  The Village continues to promote such opportunities for the right types of business and development.

Wheeling is home to Chicago Executive Airport, the Westin Chicago North Shore Hotel and Convention Center, famous Restaurant Row, and 14 million square feet of manufacturing facilities.  The $110 million Wheeling Town Center is now under construction with 100,000 square feet of retail space and 300 residential apartment units.

Wheeling is currently in the midst of over $200 million in new development projects.
