Although the community of Markham is still maturing, continued development is
inevitable with the growth trend toward Chicago Southland communities. To attract
quality business and industry and position the city to take the best possible advantage
of these changes, planners have established a tax increment financing district. Residents
enjoy easy access to Interstates 51 and 294 via interchanges with US Highway 6, also
known as 159th Street. Interstate 80 is available a short distance from the city to the
south. The 159th Street corridor is already a favored location for shops and services, and
retail plazas are springing up throughout the community. Newcomers can choose from
a pleasing selection of housing that ranges from older, well-kept homes and modest
bungalows to newer construction.
