The Hoffmann family, through their well established company, Hoffmann Commercial Real Estate, has signed a letter of intent to purchase the North Shore properties once slated for the “One Winnetka” project.
Known for its main street charm, Lincoln Avenue in the high end community of Winnetka, Illinois has long awaited the start of the “One Winnetka” project on the Southeast corner of Elm Street and Lincoln Avenue for years, a promised high end multi-use complex. This is where the Hoffmanns come in.
Owning over 95 properties from California to Florida, the Hoffmanns are known for their success in revitalizing the downtown areas of Winnetka, Illinois, Naples, Florida and the Beaver Creek ski-base town of Avon, Colorado, in all of which they are the largest private owners of commercial real estate. The Hoffmanns now look forward to once again bringing new charm to Lincoln Avenue and giving back to the community.
“We love the Village of Winnetka and the community. The downtown area reminds me of growing up in the Midwest, the downtown street lined with small businesses, families walking together with their children while enjoying an ice cream cone as their parents window shop.” – David Hoffmann, Chairman of Hoffmann Commercial Real Estate and founder of Osprey Capital, LLC.
While current plans are still underway, the Hoffmanns look forward to working closely with the Village of Winnetka to create new opportunities for growth, businesses and housing while also working closely with the existing local businesses. “We have great relationships with the businesses along Lincoln Avenue and look forward to making this a win-win for everyone.” – Greg Hoffmann, Principal and CEO of Hoffmann Commercial Real Estate.
