Development & Project Updates
Hanover Park is a dynamic community of over 38,000 with a strong business environment, encompassing over 430 businesses, five million square feet of industrial and one million square feet of commercial retail. Our central location in Chicago’s northwest suburbs ensures retail expenditures of over $500 million a year. The Village’s significant TIF incentives and AA bond rating make Hanover Park a smart place to do develop and open a business. Many business owners, property owners, and developers have taken advantage of the development opportunities in Hanover Park. This map shows some of those opportunities.
The following are just some of the many projects that are taking place within our thriving community. These are just some of the great projects going on around our community, but there are still other great parcels of land and properties that contain available real estate to help fit your business or development needs.
