Winfield Moves Forward with First Project along Roosevelt Road Commercial Corridor
The Village of Winfield is pleased to announce a milestone, closing on the property sale for the proposed Bucky’s station along Winfield’s newly rezoned Roosevelt Road commercial corridor. Located at the southwest corner of Winfield and Roosevelt Roads, the development will include nine fuel pump islands, a 6,000 square foot full-service convenience store with attached car wash, and a second complementary 5,500 square foot retail store to be built by a third party.
“Winfield has been actively involved to make this project work, assembling properties and updating our policies to encourage quality development that is appropriate for the space,” said Village President Erik Spande. The environmental friendly design of the development has approximately one third of the land being set aside for wetland and green space, preserving numerous significant trees on the site while providing large setbacks and buffers to neighboring residential properties.
The Village rezoned this route for large-scale commercial in 2015 and has taken innovative steps since to acquire purchase options on over 90% of the frontages along its Roosevelt Corridor, extending from Winfield Road over a quarter mile to the Village’s current western boundary. This assemblage is now being marketed by Peter J. Poulos Real Estate for commercial use at a minimum lot size of 7 acres per development.
Bucky’s chain began in the Omaha area, expanding into northern Illinois with the purchase of 80 Mobil stations in 2010. Their successful growth has continued and the Winfield location along high-traffic Roosevelt Road will be the fourth new Bucky’s station built in the western suburbs. Buck’s is completing final engineering to secure approvals and permits for construction expected to begin later this year. The Village welcomes them to Winfield.
