A river community located 40 miles west of Chicago, Aurora is the second largest city in Illinois with a population of over 200,000. Aurora has long been a transportation hub with easy access to Interstate 88, two Metra stations, a regional airport, 4 Higher Education Institutions,14 business parks, and 130+ mile fiber network. In addition to a rich manufacturing history and strong industrial roots, Aurora has become a commercial and entertainment destination. Emerging from the industrial recession of the 1980’s, Aurora is experiencing an amazing revitalization with expanding commercial and industrial development, riverfront and downtown redevelopment and an eclectic cultural scene.
Today, Aurora is accessible through five interchanges on the East/West Tollway Corridor. Corporate offices and commercial growth on the City's east and west side continues to expand the City's boundaries, now stretching from Route 59 on the east to portions beyond Orchard Road on the west. The far east side of the City includes the regional Westfield Shoppingtown at Fox Valley and residential areas projected to house 60,000 people within the next twenty years. The near east side includes the internationally known Chicago Premium Outlets.
