Abstract

This study examines suburban real estate developments in the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors for metropolitan Chicago that were completed in 1990-1996. Industrial and commercial developments follow expected patterns in that, for example, they were attracted to locations nearer to O'Hare Airport and highway interchanges. Residential development was attracted to O'Hare Airport and formed some clusters of its own in between major highways.
