Podmajersky, Inc.’s Pilsen holdings
Podmajersky, a multigenerational Chicago developer, holds a variety of historic buildings in Pilsen including repurposed banks, factories and warehouses. The portfolio exudes diversity and charm due to their diverse origins and the lack of significant renovation from their original conversion decades ago. Just west of Halsted, their holdings of entire city blocks of rental properties has allowed them to transform what were once backyards into communal courtyard oases away from the grit and noise of the street. Take a stroll through Pilsen and if you see a glimpse of green beyond a weathered façade, investigate—you are likely to be standing in a gem of a courtyard.
