Looking for an extraordinary community?

New Lenox, located southwest of Chicago, is a progressive, village located near Interstates 55, 57, 80, and 355.

The village offers extraordinary greenfield opportunities for development in the heart of the southwest suburbs.  From corporate headquarters to healthcare to entrepreneurial ventures to retail and restaurants, New Lenox blends a pro-growth approach with a personal touch.

New Lenox is a leader in Illinois in:

-  Education.  Our schools are ranked not only near the top in Illinois, but the nation, according to Newsweek.

-  Healthcare.  Silver Cross Hospital, a hospital which has received an "A" for patient safety ten consecutive times, provides access to world-class healthcare in New Lenox.

-  Safety.  We were the first community and are still the only community in Chicagoland that is designated as a Safe Community by the World Health Organization.

In New Lenox, you will find plenty of opportunity.  We're here to help with:
