Over the past four decades, Kogen Friedman Development has grown from a small custom home builder and remodeler into one of the North Shore’s foremost residential developers. We’ve built a considerable set of core competencies along the way, from custom building and remodeling to project management and community planning — forming the basis for the real estate services Kogen Friedman Development offers on a project-by-project basis.


Our first venture into non-residential development began in 2006, when we were selected to design and build 52,500 square feet of single story, Class A office space in Northbrook’s River Park in the prestigious Techny area. The subsequent success of this project, which comprises elegant office suites ranging from 1,500 to 9,000 square feet, finds Kogen Friedman poised to take on new and exciting challenges in the commercial development arena.


Our record of excellence in superior custom home building and remodeling in Northbrook, Deerfield, Highland Park and other communities has established a reputation that keeps Kogen Friedman in demand as the contractor of choice for North Shore homeowners and developers alike. We welcome the challenges involved in this work— and continue to invite the opportunity to bid construction projects ranging from kitchen remodeling and room additions to upper bracket custom homes and subdivisions.


The success of developments from 10 units to 164 units showcase Kogen Friedman Development’s unique capabilities in the area of zoning and development, paving the way for our emergence to the forefront of the field among North Shore developers. Our command of zoning intricacies and compliance, as well as our demonstrated ability to work effectively with zoning boards and regulatory agencies, make Kogen Friedman a favorite of North Shore communities and private investors alike. This is an increasingly important part of our business.
