The eagerly anticipated Wheeling Town Center is becoming a reality in 2018.
In May, ground broke on the Town Center’s expansive 100,000 square feet of commercial space, which is anchored by CMX Cinemas. This high-end, luxury theater offers a lounge and bar, a dine-in restaurant, and 10 cinema viewing screens.
The 40,000-square-foot cinema is joined by City Works Eatery and Pour House featuring made-from-scratch classic American cuisine and over 90 craft and local beers on tap. In addition, the locally owned Mia’s Cantina offers an authentic Mexican dining experience that can be enjoyed
on the outdoor patio.
A drive-through Starbucks offers outdoor seating as well and is a neighbor to Inland Bank, which is conveniently located with a drive-through on site. 312 Nails & Spa will offer extensive luxury services and a self-serve bar.
“The growing collection of entertainment, restaurant and specialty retail in Wheeling’s new downtown has been years in the making,” said John Melaniphy, Wheeling’s director of economic development. “The pedestrian plaza and residential space complement the ongoing park district renovations, our iconic restaurant row, and the activities at Heritage Park that already attract thousands of visitors to Wheeling.”
Next door to the Town Center, the Wheeling Park District is currently undergoing a $16.9 million renovation. The investment will modernize the space which provides indoor pools, an outdoor water park, baseball fields, walking paths, and the performance pavilion, which features concerts and movies in the park.
This commercial activity is further bolstered by the residential growth that’s building in the evolving downtown district. ONE Wheeling Town Center, the development’s luxury residential component, offers 300 luxury apartments at the center of the 16-acre development. The five-story, living experience offers a mix of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom layouts with private terraces, balconies, dens, and personal parking spaces.
Built-in ONE conveniences include on-demand spin classes with Peloton bikes, dog washing stations and a heated pool and cabana.
“From the inception of this project, we’ve worked to build a unique community at the center of Wheeling,” said Joshua Goldstein, president of the third generation, family-owned Lynmark Group. “ONE is a luxury rental experience unlike anything on the North Shore, where residents can enjoy high-end finishes and amenities, and direct access to the best town center on the North Shore with CMX Cinemas, City Works, Starbucks and so much more.”
