The Golden Corridor in the Chicago metropolitan area

The Golden Corridor is a term used to describe the area around the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (Interstate 90) in the Chicago metropolitan area.[1] It is coined as such since the corridor generates a "gold" mine of economic profit for communities in the area. Several Fortune 500 companies, office buildings, industrial buildings, exhibition and entertainment centers, hotels, shopping centers, and restaurants are located along the Golden Corridor.
