Role

Construction Manager

ICI is working concurrently on two significant Chicago-area retail developments for Kensington Development Partners: Sawmill Station in Morton Grove and Market Centre in Westmont.

Sawmill Station, a 26-acre property located at the southeast corner of Dempster Street and Waukegan Road, is being developed by Kensington in partnership with UK-based IM Properties.

Once complete, the lifestyle center is projected to include approximately 240,000-square-feet of retail and entertainment space as well as a six-story multifamily component of approximately 250,000 square feet.

ICI completed demolition of the existing Prairie View Plaza in the summer of 2019. Vertical construction commenced the following fall. Current tenants include LA Fitness and Raising Cane’s; Kensington is in negotiations for leases with Kohl’s, Cooper’s Hawk, Dollar Tree, Starbucks and Aspen Dental.

ICI worked alongside Kensington for months leading up to the acquisition of the site on construction budgeting and scheduling. The first retailers in the site are anticipated to be open in 2020. The multi-family component will be built after the completion of the retail portion.
