The Chicago-based group will provide a variety of services, including land acquisition, feasibility analysis, site planning, cost and schedule analysis, entitlements, planning and design management, project financing, leasing, as well as asset management.

Led by Managing Director Chad Broderick, LCI Development Partners will partner with trusted developer clients and institutional equity partners across the country, providing development expertise and joint venture equity, while adding value through credit enhancement, development, and construction expertise.
