Welcome to Burr Ridge

Large, estate-size properties; lush, ornamental landscapes; and bucolic, quiet subdivisions distinguish the village of Burr Ridge as “a very special place” for residents. Yet the village’s convenient location to Interstate 55 and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) beckons a diverse business community of more than 400 corporations, retailers and manufacturers. Incorporated in 1956 with a population of less than 300 people, the village of Burr Ridge continues to grow from its current population that exceeds 10,000 residents. Municipal leaders and residents prioritize the natural habitat of the community, doing everything possible to improve, protect and preserve the beautiful trees, landscaping and natural resources that so define the village. Burr Ridge also takes pride in being recognized as one of the top 300 wealthiest communities in America. For residents and businesses considering new construction, prime vacant property is still available in several Burr Ridge areas of both Cook and DuPage counties. Because of its large commercial tax base, Burr Ridge maintains one of the lowest overall municipal tax rates in the region.
