Two New Businesses to Open in Schaumburg

The community of Schaumburg outside of Chicago is gearing up to welcome two new businesses; Bottle and Bottega, an art studio with food and wine available; and Noodle Lounge, an Asian restaurant.

The trustees of the Village of Schaumburg approved both enterprises and categorized them both as restaurnts although Bottega classifies itself not primarily as a restaurant.

Bottle and Bottega will open in Town Square at the southwest corner of Schaumburg and Roselle roads. The owner, Karen Hautzinger said she expects to open the business in April. This unique business, which will fill a 1,790 square-foot space zt 51 W. Schaumburg Road, offers its customers, who usually book in groups, the chance to paint and/or create art works while also plying them with food and wine, not to mentions socializing.

There are other Bottle and Bottega studios in Arlington, Glen Ellyn, Chicago, Evanston and laGrange.

Noodle Lounge was also approved by the trustees on the board. The Asian restaurant will take up 1,542 square-feet at 22 E. Golf Road in the Schaumburg Corners Shopping Center. The Lounge can seat up to 30 people, but the restaurant expects take-out meals to provide about 20 percent of its revenue.

Motorola Solutions Moving to Chicago

motorolaAfter 50 years in Schaumburg, Motorola Solutions Inc will be moving its global headquarters to Chicago. Schaumburg, which is about a 40 minute drive outside of Chicago, has been an example of how a company can create a sprawling corporate campus in the ‘burbs.

Along with its headquarter operations the giant maker of communications equipment for government and first-responders will be taking about 800 jobs to Chicago.
There will remain behind in Schaumburg a cadre of mostly software and hardware engineers numbering about 1,600. They will be grouped into two buildings, the twelve-story corporate tower, and the 2-floor IT building.

The entire campus, all 277 acres, will be sold and redeveloped. Then Motorola will lease back the two buildings back from the new owners, said spokeswoman Tama McWhinney.

“People come, people go,” Schaumburg Mayor Al Larson said. “Motorola has been going for quite some time.”
