Commercial/Industrial Building Permits

The Building Department would like to make construction of new commercial/industrial, mixed-use or remodeling projects as simple as possible. Plans and a one-page permit application will start the permit process. Listed below is a checklist of plan details for each type of permit the Village may issue, as well as contractor license and bond information.

There are four types of commercial/industrial construction permits the Village may issue:

  • Full
  • Foundation Only (see policy linked below)
  • Shell Only
  • Build-Out/Interior Remodel

Please submit these plans to:

Village of Tinley Park 
Attn: Building Department
16250 S. Oak Park Avenue
Tinley Park, IL 60477

Also required is a Change of Use/Owner permit for businesses acquiring a previously occupied commercial or industrial space, or acquiring an existing business or property. Before a lease or sale is complete, a Change of Use/Owner permit application must be completed and returned to the Building/Planning Department for review to ensure the basic zoning criteria has been met, and an inspection will be performed to make sure the space is up to current code. A certificate of occupancy and business license cannot be issued until this process is completed. The application fee is $50.
