Uptown 500 is a $90 million, transit-oriented, master-planned, mixed-use development under construction on the northwest corner of Dundee Road and Northgate Parkway across the street from the Wheeling Town Center. Uptown 500 will feature 321 luxury apartment units and 10,500 square feet of retail space within walking distance of the Wheeling Metra Station and the nearly 100-acre Heritage Park operated by the Wheeling Park District. The developer, DAC Development, began construction in November 2018 with completion planned in 2020. On Monday, May 21, 2018 the Board of Trustees approved a Redevelopment Agreement (RDA) with Uptown 500, LLC to build a new mixed-use development in Wheeling’s rapidly growing town center area.
The Village has been working with the developer since last year to produce a project that will be a good fit for this important intersection and will help complete the transformation of Wheeling’s main commuter corridor. “This is the third large development in our newly-established town center area, and we’re very excited to see continued progress here,” Village President Patrick Horcher said. “The Uptown 500 RDA represents many months of hard work, and the Board and I are pleased to see this project take the next step towards fruition.”
