A Chicago-area outfit called NBCG Partners has received permission from the Wheeling village board to operate a cannabis cultivation center at 160 W. Hintz Road.

The new business will provide cannabis to dispensaries. Trustees unanimously granted the permit Monday.


The 59,446-square-foot building last was occupied by AGSCO Corp., an industrial mineral and blasting equipment distributor that relocated to Libertyville.

The village board also granted variances from various local building codes for the business.

The business could be operational within six to nine months, a representative told the village's plan commission last month.
