Real Estate Development


Real Estate Development builds affordable housing for working-class families and community spaces that promote education and economic development. Our achievements help stabilize neighborhoods and positively impact communities.

Our department manages our real estate development functions from concept to construction. This approach includes the acquisition of vacant lots and properties for rehabilitation, the planning of new constructions such as La Casa, and the procurement of the grant and investment dollars necessary for such projects.

casaQ-CORNER VIEW-SILLS2Our goal of creating safe and healthy communities has led to the development of nearly 600 units of affordable housing (for rent and for sale), ranging from single-family homes to multi-unit apartment housing for families, seniors, and college students. Our educational stance is reflected in La Casa, an affordable, multi-university student dormitory, and in the Instituto Health Science Career Academy, a high school designed to educate future healthcare professionals. TRP has also developed childcare centers like Guadalupano Family Center in Pilsen, and Paolo Freire Child Care Center in Back of the Yards.

We designed a new residential building, Casa Querétaro (pictured above), which offers 45 units of affordable housing. The design and construction follows Green Home standards, reducing environmental impact with features such as green roofs, and permeable parking. You can download a Casa Querétaro information sheet here. In addition, TRP Real Estate Development is working to develop Aspira Technical High School, a charter school that focuses on increasing Latino achievement.
