Charles River Development focuses its activities in McHenry County and the adjoining Chicago-land area. The company is committed to building relationships as well as projects, and attributes much of its success to effectively utilizing an established network of subcontractors, customers and lenders.

Charles River Development is active in the development of office, commercial, industrial, and retail projects. Each project is carefully designed to meet the client’s specific criteria, to fulfill a particular market need, or to attract a certain type of tenant or customer.
