Inland Bank joining Wheeling Town Center as newest tenant
Inland Bank is the latest business planning to open at the Wheeling Town Center, joining a CMX Cinemas movie theater, City Works Eatery and Pour House, and Starbucks slated for the site.
The Oak Brook-based bank, which has 10 locations in the Chicago area, signed a lease to operate a 2,000-square-foot branch and drive-through within the $110 million development at Dundee Road and Northgate Parkway. The bank is expected to open toward the end of this year.
Though building plans for the Starbucks already won approval from the village board, the Wheeling Town Center developer, Lynmark Group, also announced Wednesday that the coffee chain has formally signed a lease. Starbucks will have a 2,100-square-foot space with a drive-through and patio seating.
"It is exciting to partner with Starbucks and Inland Bank as we create a downtown for Wheeling that will be a destination for surrounding neighbors and surrounding suburban visitors alike," Joshua Goldstein, president of Lynmark Group, said in a news release. "This historically underutilized part of Wheeling will be completely transformed by these tenants and the comprehensive community-focused space to come."
Meanwhile, the village also has approved building plans for the CMX movie theater. Plans for the theater have changed since they were first introduced. Now there will be eight screens instead of 10 and a total of 760 seats instead of 796.
In addition to about 100,000 square feet of commercial space, the Town Center development also includes a five-story, 300-unit apartment building, which is under construction.
