City Properties was incorporated
in the State of Illinois in 1970, and since its inception has pioneered
in the re-development of older, mixed use properties, primarily
located in the River North area of Chicago.
Under the direction of Ken Pearl, President of City Properties,
these grand old buildings that had formerly given employment
to many of Chicagos factory workers, smaller manufacturing
companies and retail-type stores, have been transformed into viable,
customized individual environments for use as commercial office
suites, retailing, gallery space, entertainment and restaurant facilities
for the small to mid-sized user. As the corporation progressed in
its re-development ventures and slowly increased its portfolio of
real estate holdings, Mr. Pearl and City Properties soon
had the moniker of The Original Developer of River North
attached to all its endeavors. The City of Chicago and other Real
Estate businesses doing the same type of re-development soon realized
that to some degree they were following the lead of Ken Pearl and
City Properties. Numerous articles have been written by the
Chicago Sun-Times and the Tribune newspapers real estate staff
writers, which have previously referenced Ken Pearl as, The
Original Developer of River North.

has been and still is to balance the needs of its Tenants with the
