Community Development

At Harrington Brown, we have sought to identify properties in our community suitable for responsible development or renovation. We have been committed to building and renovating high-quality multifamily, retail and mixed-use properties on Chicago's north side and in Evanston.

We have focused on opportunities to provide attractive rental housing and community-supported retail in the neighborhoods of North Center, Ravenswood, Roscoe Village and Lincoln Square.

Current Development Project:

Montrose Green - 1819 West Montrose Avenue, Chicago, IL

A retail, office and residential development planned in the heart of the Ravenswood Arts District near the CTA Brown Line station at Montrose.
