New Business Update: Cohab & Company Coming to Elmhurst

Posted on December 4, 2017 at 8:39 AM by Erin Jason

The City is pleased to announce Cohab, a "community coworking space with sophisticated offerings and comfty amenities" will open their doors at 107 Adell Place in Winter 2018. Cohab & Company (Cohab for short) began out of a need for co-founder Michelle Steber. As a remote employee for an eCommerce site, Michelle began looking for coworking spaces in the western suburbs. She was shocked that only a handful existed in the suburbs, and none in the local vicinity. Upon touring the Elmhurst space at 107 Adell Place, she and her husband Bill, knew that was the ideal spot to create a coworking community. Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2018, Cohab will have private offices, monthly and daily membership offerings, along with various amenities to make this an ideal spot for entrepreneurs, start-ups, and solo ventures.

For more information, contact Michelle at Cohab & Company (331)209-0290.

New BMW Rendering
Expansion of Elmhurst Auto Group's Elmhurst BMW is currently underway at 500 W. Lake St. where BMW will relocate in 2018. Current operations of Elmhurst BMW (466 W. Lake) will not be affected during construction. The improvements and expansion of the BMW dealership will double the allotment of BMW vehicles to the Elmhurst location and will also allow the expansion of the Toyota and Jaguar dealership's new and used sales as well as parts and service.

The Elmhurst City Council recently approved a redevelopment agreement with Elmhurst Auto Group to assist the dealership with expansion and retain the business in Elmhurst. The Elmhurst Auto Group is one of the City's largest sales tax producing businesses with over $1million in sales tax each year.
