Large, estate-sized properties; lush, ornamental landscapes; and bucolic, quiet subdivisions distinguish the Village of Burr Ridge as “a very special place” for residents. Yet the Village’s convenient location to Interstate 55 and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) beckons a diverse business community of more than 400 corporations, retailers and manufacturers. Incorporated in 1956 with a population of less than 300 people, the Village of Burr Ridge continues to grow from its current population that exceeds 10,000 residents. Municipal leaders and residents prioritize the natural habitat of the community, doing everything possible to improve, protect and preserve the beautiful trees, landscaping and natural resources that define the Village. Burr Ridge also takes pride in being recognized as one of the top 300 wealthiest communities in America. For residents and businesses considering new construction, prime vacant property is still available in several Burr Ridge areas of both Cook and DuPage counties. Because of its large commercial tax base, Burr Ridge maintains one of the lowest overall municipal tax rates in the region.

Burr Ridge welcomed the Burr Ridge Village Center in the fall of 2007. The Village Center is an upscale shopping venue coupled with a multi-unit residential community. In addition to the many diverse retail tenants, the Center features several gourmet restaurants, one of which includes a wine tasting room and gift shop and a spa. The Center will offer a variety of entertainment and outdoor events during the warm weather months in a courtyard setting.For commuters and Chicago-bound students or shoppers, PACE provides a Park-n-Ride service that enables motorists to leave their cars in a convenient lot near the County Line Square and Burr Ridge Village Shopping Centers. Commuters can then take the bus to Chicago’s loop or head to the Hinsdale train station for a direct Burlington Northern train ride downtown.

Lodging options are plentiful for area business travelers or out-of-town guests who use the services of Extended Stay of America, Chicago Marriott Southwest at Burr Ridge, Springhill Suites at Burr Ridge and The Oaks Hotel.
