Inland Real Estate Brokerage & Consulting, Inc. Closes on Chicago Retail Assemblage for Redevelopment

Oak Brook, Ill. – Inland Real Estate Brokerage & Consulting, Inc. (“Inland Brokerage & Consulting”) announced today the successful sale and closing of four parcels, comprised of two retail properties, one single-family home and one land parcel, located near the signaled corner intersection of Archer Avenue and Harlem Avenue in Chicago’s southwest Garfield Ridge community.

All of the properties sold will be redeveloped to make way for an Aldi-anchored retail center. The assemblage will provide the requisite area for Aldi and the new retailers. In addition, the approval process included a beautification component in order to provide an inviting look for the influx in pedestrian traffic.

“The vision for this project began in early 2015, and due to the complexity of this assemblage, it took well over a year to complete,” said William Dozier, Jr., broker associate for Inland Brokerage & Consulting. “The development group, JAMA LLC, Alderman Michael Zalewski, the local community chamber of commerce and our clients, the property owners and tenants, all worked diligently together to make this possible for the Garfield Ridge community.”

“This is truly a win-win for the sellers, buyer, City of Chicago and the Garfield Ridge community,” said Paul Rogers, president of Inland Brokerage & Consulting. “Our engagement started with a single parcel offering and we added additional neighboring parcels to create a large enough footprint for an exciting retail development. Bottom line, the Garfield Ridge neighborhood gets a grocery-anchored retail development for the betterment of the community while creating significant value for all parties involved.”
