On February 14, CMX CinéBistro Wheeling is set to open in the Wheeling Town Center as the retail anchor for the space which opened in Spring 2019. This newest addition to the Wheeling, Illinois development is the largest tenant and will occupy 40,000 square feet and bring the Wheeling Town Center to 97 percent capacity.
“With the completion of CMX CinéBistro Wheeling, Wheeling Town Center has officially become a community unlike anything else in northwest suburban living,” said Joshua Goldstein, President of The Lynmark Group, Wheeling Town Center’s developer. “It’s an unrivaled location to live with a luxury movie viewing experience steps from your door. And it’s truly a one-stop retail and entertainment family destination for all those in the surrounding communities.”
CMX CinéBistro Wheeling will feature a bar and lounge area equipped for 183 patrons and offering amenities such as large screen TVs, pool and shuffle board tables, as well as a complete game area. The theater has seven screens with a total seating capacity of 624. After 8 p.m., the facility will be a 21 and over theater for all movies.
“Wheeling Town Center is a prime example of a highly successful mixed-use development for today’s ever-changing retail environment,” said Newmark Knight Frank senior managing director James Schutter. “The project is already becoming the heart of the community with its variety of restaurants and entertainment and a metro station within walking distance.”
“CMX Cinemas is thrilled to open our fourth location in Illinois and bring an elevated dinner-and-a-movie experience and a new sports-watching experience to Wheeling and the surrounding communities,” said Javier Ezquerro, COO of CMX Cinemas. “We hope to become Wheeling’s preferred entertainment destination with something for everyone—from the chef-crafted menu and cocktails, to the ultimate sports-watching experience at CMX Stone Sports Bar.”
The theater joins other key tenants already open at Wheeling Town Center, including Starbucks, Inland Bank, AT&T and City Works. Wheeling Town Center contains a total of over 100,000 square feet of commercial space across its 16-acre site. Additional retail tenants opening in Spring 2020 include Mia’s Cantina, 312 Nails, The Learning Experience and Artic Spoon.
The property also includes a luxury residence, One Wheeling Town Center, with more than 300 suites. The five-story complex features unique floor plans that offer private terraces, balconies, dens and other high end amenities. The One Wheeling Town Center luxe apartments opened in Spring 2019 and are more than 70 percent leased.
