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 Chicago’s 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 newspaper’s real estate staff writers, which have previously referenced Ken Pearl as, “The Original Developer of River North.”

Turn around time from initial showing of the property to review of a lease is often less than 72 hours and an in house design staff is available to meet your design or re-construction requirements.

Through it all, the primary focus of the corporation and its owner has been and still is to balance the needs of its Tenants with the needs of the particular location and building in which they have chosen to operate their businesses. Each property is made distinctive because of the “hands-on” style of management. For us at City Properties, it's personal care, and it shows in everything we do! The buildings we own, we manage. There is no middleman or agent between Landlord and Tenant. As an existing Tenant’s business needs change so does our management style, so we can help. We’ll even move you to another location or building owned and managed by City Properties.

Instead we offer much more attractive rates, made even more so by the service you’ll receive. For over thirty years City Properties Corporation has been providing extraordinary rental space for entrepreneurial professionals.
