COMMUNITY GROWTH | Progress Underway In Sugar Grove

Windsor Pointe Subdivision, Sugar Grove, Illinois - Glancer Magazine


Located west of Orchard Road on the other side of Naperville and Aurora straight down I-88, is beautiful Sugar Grove located in Kane County. The community has experienced steady growth since 2000 and continues to attract young, ambitious families who are living the American dream. Sugar Grove is the perfect community for those who love the small town feel, yet want to be close to popular shopping, dining and area attractions.

Business is booming in the community, as builders, developers and smart marketers put new plans in motion. Recent years included the addition of Ace Hardware, Dunkin Donuts, Culvers, Starbuck's and more. According to the Village of Sugar Grove in a recent news release, plans for new Sugar Grove development are ramping up.

"Village Community Development staff are once again spending considerable time and effort on long term land use planning, working with developers who control sites within Sugar Grove’s village limits and planning area," said Bill Whitmer of the Sugar Grove Economical Development Corporation.

"Discussions about needed infrastructure, subdivision and site plan approvals and transportation / access requirements are being held with manufacturers, commercial and industrial developers for a new project. National Shopping Plazas, Inc. is developing concepts for a 40-acre commercial subdivision, which currently include hotels, retail and restaurant sites. Crown Community Development is planning for a development of mixed uses, north along Illinois Route 47. Industrial companies looking to expand have visited the Sugar Grove Community Development office and are considering available sites for development here. All of this activity is being spurred by the dwindling supply of development sites in communities farther east along the I-88 corridor; the expedition of the I-88/IL Route 47 full interchange project (completion expected in fall of 2019); and, Sugar Grove’s residential development community getting back on track. Not all the activity being done today is for long term planning however," Whitmer noted.



A commercial contractor – MD Contracting Services, formerly of Oswego, recently purchased the 12,000 sq. ft. industrial building at 11 Duffy Lane in Sugar Grove’s Marquette Industrial Park. According to MD’s owner and Sugar Grove resident Mike Cardamone, the company services and builds commercial kitchens for restaurants like Lou Malnati’s, Wendy’s, Portillo’s and Rosati’s.

Mike says the building fits company needs for staging jobs they do, from Wisconsin to Indiana—plus it’s close to home. J.D. Dolan, Dolan & Murphy Real Estate, was the Broker on the sale.

Naperville Construction Fence Rental just leased 7,500 sq. ft. at 1016 Airpark Drive in Sugar Grove’s Aero Industrial Park. Naperville Construction Fence Rental has been in business for 13 years, and as their name indicates, got their start in Naperville. The company rents construction fence for residential and commercial construction sites. Company owner Chris Hoekstra, also a Sugar Grove resident, says they outgrew their warehouse in Big Rock and really liked Sugar Grove. The company covers the Tri-State area with their service. Neil Johnson, SVN Commercial Real Estate, was the Broker on the lease.

The business is leasing 2,500 square feet, at 38 Terry Drive in Sugar Grove. Ron Troutman is the building landlord.
