Quigley: A downtown dilemma
Like any community wanting to maintain the viability of its downtown, Elmhurst is facing a plethora of redevelopment issues in its Central Business District (CBD), also known as Elmhurst City Centre.
In 1986, the city of Elmhurst established its first tax increment financing district (TIF 1) in hopes of revitalizing a downtown that had no hopes of competing with the Oak Brook Shopping Center a short drive to the south, nearby Yorktown Mall to the west in Lombard and Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. And that’s not to mention the coming soon brand-name outlet malls with highway/tollway accessibility.
The cornerstone of downtown Elmhurst’s redevelopment was York Theatre, which over the past quarter century has been transformed from a single-screen, second-run movie house into a 10-screen cineplex offering Hollywood’s newest releases to thousands of moviegoers every day.
