Our Location

With a population of 5,722 residents, Lake Bluff sits at the top of the string of communities that comprise Chicago’s North Shore. Located only 35 miles north from downtown Chicago and in Lake County, employees of Wood Burditt enjoy access to major interstate highways, accessible airports (O’Hare International Airport and Waukegan Executive Airport) and the Metra passenger rail system. The office is located on the second floor of the Village Commons building, developed in 2008.

Lake Bluff is well known in and around the area for its creative and well attended Fourth of July Parade which is coordinated by a group of local volunteers. In addition to the annual parade, each summer (June through October) the Village hosts a Farmers’ Market on the Village Green on Friday mornings from 7:00 to 12:00 p.m., across the street from the Wood Burditt Group offices. This event showcases some of the very best fresh produce, cut flowers and baked goods in the County. In addition to these favorites, the Village supports a wide array of special events from art festivals to concerts and community barbeques. The special events that are hosted by local non-profit groups help maintain a vibrant business district, as well as promote strong community interaction.
