Case Study

Flying high over an inheritance

After inheriting 325 acres of land at O’Hare International Airport from the U.S. Air Force, the City of Chicago’s Department of Aviation turned to JLL for assistance in identifying end-use opportunities, conducting cost/benefit analyses for various development scenarios, preparing detailed development strategies and implementing those strategies. To accomplish these tasks, JLL assembled a team of land planners, civil engineers, architects and accountants to address the many challenges associated with the property.

To date, a variety of projects identified by the plan have been implemented, and JLL continues to serve as the City’s development, marketing and financial advisor for city-owned airport real estate. As a result of our success in working with its Department of Aviation, the City of Chicago asked us to serve as its real estate advisor for the O’Hare Modernization Program.
