The Village of Bloomingdale’s nearly 22,000 residents consider themselves fortunate to reside in a community with an abundance of shopping opportunities and eateries, stable commercial districts offering employment opportunities nearby, and excellent schools, all situated amid plenty of open space. In fact, 85% of the Village’s eight square miles consists of residential property and open space.
Five major shopping areas – including the 1.3 million square foot Stratford Square Mall, the 600,000 square foot Bloomingdale Court Shopping Center, and the Stratford Crossing Shopping Center with 360,000 square feet, along with several convenience retail centers offer all the goods and services residents need. Further, the Village offers a full complement of family dining options, many of which are locally owned.
Bloomingdale provides residents with a wide and exciting variety of housing options. Residential developments were planned and built to take full advantage of nature’s existing landscape, most with direct access to Bloomingdale’s award winning recreational trail system.
In addition to numerous parks, replete with active and passive recreation opportunities, the Village is home to Hilton Indian Lakes Resort, hosting vacationers, conferences, and exhibitions attracting visitors throughout Chicagoland.
Residents have almost 30 clubs, organizations and civic groups they can join to become actively involved in various aspects of community life.
The Village continues to balance a reduced reliance on property taxes as a source of operating revenues while still expanding its revenue base with professional office centers and high quality business parks, including the Covington Corporate Center, the Bloomingdale Court Shopping Center, and the Pro-Logis Business Center. Bloomingdale is the corporate home of NOW Foods and Roman Inc., the U.S. distribution hub of Fontanini holiday items and giftware.
While Bloomingdale’s business and residential growth have been prevalent, it has not been at the expense of the Village’s heritage. The two-story frame schoolhouse built in 1891 in the heart of the Old Town District, affectionately referred to as the “Old Village Hall,” is central to the Village’s identity.
As more families and businesses discover all Bloomingdale has to offer, the Village will continue to be recognized as “the best of all worlds.”
