Within the 2016 calendar year, Bradleyans will be able to enjoy Chipotle Mexican Grill, Five Guys and Firehouse Subs without having to leave town.
When Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon at 1605 Illinois Route 50, Bradley, in front of Target closed for business on Sept. 12, plans for a new development in the same location were underway.
Vice President of Chicago’s Suburban Retail Agency Les Kristof confirmed that the former Lonestar building in addition to a new building being built directly adjacent will house Chipotle Mexican Grill, Firehouse Subs, Five Guys, Mattress Firm and one more business that is yet to be determined, as the space is still available for rent.
“We’ve been working on the project for over a year,” Kristof said. “When Lonestar closed, the property got put under contract.”
Kristof said the official opening date has yet to be determined, as well. “It depends on construction,” he said. “I would say a ballpark estimate would be the second quarter of next year, 2016.”
