Building for the Future

We currently own land on Irving Park Road in beautiful Itasca. We have successfully achieved all the variations and permission to build a unique Performing Arts space on this land, which will cost approximately $1.7 million dollars to build. At present, getting a loan from a financial institution is not possible.

We are currently seeking to raise the money independently. We also have an Overshadowed Opportunity Fund in place. For more information about this fund, please email Reba Hervas.
