Hoffman Estates was recently named City of the Year by the Illinois Real Estate Journal.
The award recognizes the economic progress in the village over the past year. Major projects include the redevelopment of the Bell Works Metrobourg on the former AT&T campus and the construction of Microsoft’s new 200,000 square foot data center on Lakewood Boulevard.
Other projects included new gas stations and convenience stores at Barrington Square Town Center and Hoffman Village, and the addition of Burlington and Dollar Tree at Prairie Stone Crossing in the 59-90 entertainment district.
The village is also recognized for its participation in local development organizations. Hoffman Estates was selected from a group of four finalist communities by a panel of real estate professionals.
