CHICAGOLAND
Bill Kay Ford in Midlothian
Last week, we posited that real estate brokers or developers were behind the term Chicagoland. Bisnow reader and Re/Max broker Michael Lunn suggested another likely culprit: car dealers and their TV commercials. And Foresite Realty Partners Leonard Richards says the drive times on the map in last week's issue are just a dream unless they were referring to the 4am hour. To his understanding, Chicagoland refers to the City and six collar counties: Cook, DuPage, Lake, Will, Kane, and McHenry—roughly where the Metra trains go. On the other hand, those "Your Chicagoland Ford dealer" commercials made it across the airwaves to Michael over in Indiana. So the mystery continues.
