Through years of dedication to excellence in execution, customer service, and commitment to delivering genuine value, Kogen Friedman Development has become one of the most respected residential developers serving Chicago’s prestigious North Shore suburbs. This is a position we’ve worked hard for and take great pride in.

Established in the 1980s as one of the area’s premier builders of high-end custom single-family homes, we expanded our focus to include small subdivisions of exclusive single family and multi-family homes. Then in 1996, Kogen Friedman was selected to participate in the long-anticipated residential development of Northbrook’s Techny property, introducing the innovative long-term ground lease model in upscale multi-family housing. The resulting communities of Royal Ridge (1996) and Northbrook Greens (2000) proved enormously successful, firmly establishing Kogen Friedman among the area’s top builder/developers. Our stature was further enhanced in 2006, when we were tapped to contribute 52,500 square feet of luxury single-story office space to the important Northbrook River Park commercial development.

Our drive to excel continues today. Under the direction of principals Susan Kogen-Friedman, Joel Kogen and Steven Friedman, Kogen Friedman Development continues to take on challenging projects that run the gamut of our skill set, from individual custom homes and redesign/remodeling work to stand-alone residential communities and mixed-use developments. We remain determined to build upon our well-earned reputation for producing the high caliber developments the communities of the North Shore demand and deserve.

This is what we do.
