Channahon Corporate Center

Artistic Rendering of Channahon Corporate Center Building A.

Located at the northeast corner of I-55 and Bluff Rd., the Channahon Corporate Center is an industrial project under construction by IDI Gazeley.  The first building is approximately 750,000 square feet of space for manufacturing, logistics, and/or warehousing.  A total of nearly 2-million square feet of building space may eventually occupy the site.  Exchange Blvd. is being constructed as a new north-south road, which will eventually link Amoco Rd. with Bluff Rd. to serve the developments and alleviate frontage road traffic.  Along with the site, offsite work will be conducted to improve the interchange at I-55 and Bluff Rd.  This will include the addition of turn-lanes, improved turning radii, and signalization of the entrance/exit ramps.  A new water-main was extended from the water tower on Bluff Rd., under I-55, to serve the Channahon Corporate Center as well as future developments.  Anticipated completion time for the interchange improvement is late 2017.

Little Learner Children’s Academy – Expansion


Little Learner Children’s Academy is expanding this time once again. Due to the love and support we have received from the Minooka/Channahon area, we have decided once again to expand our facility to offer more spots available to students and also welcome more jobs for the community. We will now have classrooms tailored specifically to the child’s age, for example, an infant room, a toddler room, 2 year old room, 3 year old room, and a Pre-Kindergarten classroom. With our in-house curriculum, Little Learner’s strives to produce the best learning environment in the community. We offer several different options for enrolling in our facility to try and accommodate all families needs when it comes to their families. We offer full-day preschool, AM/PM preschool, before and after school, summer camp for ages 2-12 year olds. Little Learner’s is excited about this expansion and cannot wait to see what the future may hold. (Text provided by LLCA)

St. Elizabeth Residences: A Senior Community

Apartment Building in Frankfort Square

A similar, but not identical, building to what will be built in Channahon Town Center.

Currently under construction in the Channahon Town Center, the St. Elizabeth Residences are a project by Catholic Charities Diocese of Joliet.  When complete, 48 apartments will be available for independent living for those aged 62 and over.  The apartments are a mix of one and two bedroom units, with accessible units and adaptable units also available. Each apartment comes with its own attached garage space. The development will also feature a community clubhouse with on-site, live-in staff to oversee the facility.  Along with the apartment and clubhouse facilities, St. Elizabeth Drive is being completed to connect the traffic circle near the Channahon Municipal Center with the western side of Town Center. Walking paths, green features, and open space are all integral parts which make the St. Elizabeth Residences conform to the Town Center Design Guidelines.

Additional information, including leasing pre-application may be found here.
