Magellan Development Group LLC has earned a reputation as a successful developer, judged not only by the financial performance of its projects, but in the esteem of its international investors, joint venture partners, lenders, renters, buyers, consultants, contractors, as well as government officials. Magellan is managed by experienced professionals - a team offering years of experience in every facet of property development, construction, management and marketing.

Since its inception in 1996, Magellan has developed 26 mostly mixed-use communities encompassing over 8,000 residential units, that in aggregate have generated over $5 billion in value. Magellan is perhaps best known for its Lakeshore East mixed-use development in downtown Chicago, Illinois.

Magellan’s success is a result of the company’s vision, the insistence on quality design, construction, and materials, and the choice of renowned architects, landscape designers and construction companies. Magellan continues to set new standards for neighborhoods, environmentally-sensitive residential buildings and individual unit design for the 21st century. It is a stunning new reality that has captured the imagination of residents.
