Why Dixon?

A Cultural & Economic Hub for Northern Illinois

Centrally located between several metro areas, Dixon is a prime location that pulls traffic from across Northern Illinois.

Servicing the Under-Serviced

Rural communities are often overlooked, but with a population size of 60,000 within our trade area, there is plenty of untapped potential.

High Traffic & Visibility

With more than 13,000 vehicles passing through our I-88 development every day, you can be assured your project will have prime visibility.

Upcoming Developments

As a part of the I-88 Gateway project, we have several new developments underway, including two new hotels, four restaurants, a travel station, and a bank. We hope we can count you in too!

Let’s Connect!

We’re looking for partners to build Dixon for the next 50 years.
