Among Bellwood’s strengths are a quality workforce and a willingness to support ambitious redevelopment that may immediately bear fruit or prosper in years to come.

Bellwood maintains an overwhelming advantage as it is minutes from downtown Chicago and just a few minutes away from O’Hare International Airport. Access to and from Bellwood is one of the most convenient of any Chicago suburb.

The village sits at the crossroads of a major interstate highway, a commuter rail line and an extensive bus network. Therefore, land acquisition for development has provided an opportunity to reach a high level of development potential for all types of industry.

Bellwood’s efforts over the past several years have positioned it well for new developments in retail and commercial and residential investment. That preparedness is leading to a higher tax base, good-paying new jobs, more and better shopping alternatives, modern new housing and enhanced community services.
