The Village of Westmont is truly “In the Middle of it All”, conveniently located within 20 minutes of both O’Hare and Midway Airports, with easy access to 7 major highways, and the BNSF/Metra commuter rail line serving 1,150 travelers per day. Westmont offers a unique blend of hometown appeal and a thriving business community. With an annual business economy of over $632 million, the Village of Westmont works actively with businesses to insure their success. This pro business stance has prompted a number of prestigious and international companies to locate within the Village.
Much of the northern portion of Westmont is devoted to office-research business parks. These beautifully landscaped areas enhance the setting and provide an exceptional work environment for employees, clients, and visitors. Permitted business park uses also include day care centers, extended stay motels, and restaurants.
Ogden Avenue is the location of a “world class auto dealership cluster” which generates over $392 million per year in auto sales. This economic engine affords further opportunities for growth as land assemblage efforts for additional dealerships are actively promoted by the Village. The Central Business District in downtown Westmont represents a “Transit Oriented Design” development strategy focused on restaurants, retail, and increased residential mixed use to “build in” a clientele for targeted businesses, and encourage the use of public transit facilities.
The quality of life in Westmont is exemplified by excellence and small class size in schools, an outstanding business community, award winning park district facilities, a variety of housing options, spectacular special events, and a superior municipal government with a commitment to all facets of the town.
