HIGH-RISE & URBAN PLANNING

Building the foundation of his Architecture and Design profession, Michael gained some of his most valuable experience during the High-rise boom at the turn of this past century.  There were more High-rise construction cranes frequenting the skylines during this time period than any other decade prior in the past century.

He first worked as a prominent Project Architect at the award-winning and nationally recognized Architectural Firm Loewenberg & Assoc., known for their expertise in High-rise and Mix-use Condominium Developments, and for their decades of strategic work in the Lakefront and Downtown City Urban Planning.  In this role, Mike led and assisted some of the most prestigious High-rise Developments around the City of Chicago, while collaborating with other nationally prominent and recognized Developers, Architects, Designers, Engineers and Construction firms.

Michael later built a reputation through Chicago Design + Construction redefining the level of design in the most up and coming neighborhoods through their own in-fill developments and return client base.
