Tinley Park is home to more than 45,000 people, attesting to its appeal as a great place to live, work and play. Tinley Park schools maintain a reputation for excellence, demanding creativity and top performance from students at every grade level.
In addition to St. Xavier University, which recently opened its south campus in Tinley Park, several other major universities and colleges are nearby to serve the community’s growing academic and educational needs.
Thousands of acres of forest preserve border Tinley Park, enhancing outdoor recreation and family oriented fun. Residents enjoy well-developed and maintained community parks and a comprehensive program of sports, arts, special interest and educational activities for all ages.
A variety of housing offers a number of options, including single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and apartments.
With 28 percent of its area zoned for commercial use, Tinley Park has an aggressive plan for economic growth and employs a number of incentives to attract commercial development.
The extraordinary increase of new business square footage in Tinley Park represents unprecedented growth in the I-80 Corridor. From 1994 to 1997, commercial square footage of new business increased from 366,000 to more than 690,000. Valuation from new construction within Village boundaries (including single- and multi-family residential construction and commercial construction) grew from $74.2 million in 1994 to $115 million in 1996.
With the extension of I-355 to I-80, the south suburbs of Chicago are gearing up for an economic development boom all along the I-80 Corridor – and Tinley Park is already a major player in that development. With over 2.5 million sq. ft. of new business added to the Village’s commercial base since 1994, the extension of I-355 to I-80, as well as the proposed third Chicago-area airport, Tinley Park and the I-80 Corridor become an even more attractive place for companies to build and/or relocate.
The tremendous economic growth occuring in Tinley Park is a direct result of keeping a watchful eye to the future. Long-range planning and infrastructure improvement are integral parts of the economic development strategies of the Village, which carefully balance healthy commercial growth while maintaining an appealing, attractive quality of life for all residents.
