The diversity of our experience includes the development of large scale residential condominiums, including the award winning 800,000 square foot Skybridge, rehabilitation and conversion of 100 year old buildings, mixed-use developments and private single-family residences.


For us, it is never about building the biggest building, but about building the best building.  

Every site is designed in context with the neighborhood in which it will reside.  We examine and explore the highest and best use for each property.  The most important questions we ask are  "Who is is the market", "What is the demand", "What is the best design" and "How does it fit within its community.



Chicago Development Partners has successfully completed over 500 residential units, land development projects and hundreds of thousands square feet of retail and commercial space in and outside of Chicago.

A successful development doesn't just fill a plot of land, it fulfills a community.  

At Chicago Development Partners,  we identify the stakeholders, understand how each will be effected and work closely with residents, investors and government agencies to create consensus with reasonable and fair results that are beneficial to all.
