Introduction

The maps below of the Chicago metro area and suburbs are provided for the convenience of executives and business advisors who may be unfamiliar with this region for business location selection.  Additional maps may be found on the websites of county and local area economic development organizations, such as custom maps to illustrate data about key topics.  Some community websites may make GIS mapping tools available to map data about their area.

   

There are also links below these maps for Google Local maps and satellite images which can be dragged or zoomed to see any level of detail in the communities down to specific sites.

We welcome suggestions for improvement.

       

Contact us for free project assistance if you may be interested in expanding your business into the Chicago area of Illinois or any other region.

We provide personal introductory referrals to our contacts, market research work, and other assistance as an independent service according to the capital investment project interests of the corporate executives and business advisors we serve.

We are independent advisors doing global work in the northwest Chicago suburbs - not a government or non-profit economic development organization or investment promotion agency.

 

We are developing a new directory of professional service providers relevant to this market in Illinois, including site selection consultants, corporate real estate services, commercial real estate property developers, architects, engineers, construction firms, tax advisors, bankers, lawyers, and other specialists who are known to support Illinois business investment projects.  This may include executive summary presentations of their capabilities for search purposes - Service Profiles - similar to our Area Survey and Area Profile.
