The St Charles business center is in the heart of the historic downtown area of St Charles. The attractively located business center is very near to the Fox River and next to a plaza with fountains. Part of Chicago’s Metropolitan area, St Charles has more than 2,000 businesses employing over 30,000 people in a broad mix of sectors. Governmental surveys reveal the vast majority of businesses operating in the area say it is a good place to do business. On the expanding, more industrialized eastern side of the area, are two key commercial sites: the 715-acre Business St Charles Business Park; and the ultra-modern 800-acre DuPage National Technology Park, the largest corporate research and development park in DuPage County. Neighboring DuPage Regional Airport is home to a number of aviation-related organizations. The business center is also within an hour’s drive of O’Hare International Airport.
