Building Since 1871

J. Lawrence Holdings’ building roots go back to 1871, making it one of the nation’s oldest homebuilding companies. Privately owned and locally run, J. Lawrence understands the Chicagoland real estate landscape and has experience working with more than 100 municipalities in both the city and suburbs. The company is adept at responding to the marketplace and implementing the best solution for each piece of property—whether it be single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, apartments, retail, commercial, or mixed-use development.

Quality is at the forefront of everything J. Lawrence does. The company uses state-of-the-art materials and adheres to the highest construction standards to produce homes of lasting value. From affordable multifamily developments to custom-crafted executive properties, each new J. Lawrence community is designed to complement the surrounding neighborhood and enhance the immediate area. Today—in response to market shifts—J. Lawrence is focused on urban and suburban infill properties, specifically transit-oriented developments close to city centers.

After building more than 10,000 homes, office properties, apartments, and retail centers across Chicagoland, J. Lawrence has earned a reputation for client satisfaction and on-time delivery. In addition to multiple design, development and quality awards, the company was named 2012’s Builder of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago.

J. Lawrence’s executive team averages more than 25 years of hands-on real estate experience and are viewed as valued leaders and trusted sources in the real estate industry and business community. They are respected by peers, partners, the public, and media for their financial aptitude, homebuilding expertise, fortitude, and generosity.
