LG Construction + Development

Opening our doors in 2005, LG Development Group was founded by Brian Goldberg as a real estate development company focused on producing luxury residential and commercial properties. We quickly realized we had an opportunity to more effectively serve our clients and partners, and in 2008, we started LG Construction Group, offering general contracting services independent from LG Development Group, then LG Advantage, a fully staffed small projects and service division, and our most recent venture, LG Design, a modern interior design division. Each team offers a powerful combination of different skills and abilities, and being under one roof, we’re able to provide those high-quality services in a collaborative, cohesive environment.

Over the past 14 years, our hard work and dedication to perfection has established us as a premier full-service general contracting and development firm. Our portfolio ranges from ultra-luxurious single-family homes to top-rated restaurants and retail to multi-family adaptive reuse apartments and new construction condominiums. Our knowledge of Chicagoland combined with an aptitude to adjust to market needs is unlike any other; we’re nimble enough to take on what others can’t and turn it into a thriving successful project.

While we focus on high-style design and craftsmanship, we know that the process of completing a project well, while paying attention to the clients’ input, is what the market needs and what we’re able to provide. Our process during the project is just as important as the completed product; many companies can get the job done, but few can get it done in a way that also makes the journey enjoyable.

LG Development Team


We're dedicated to strengthening the communities we serve. Our commitment to bringing positive, lasting change to Chicagoland is demonstrated by donating our time, skills, knowledge, and money. We encourage our employees to participate in philanthropic causes as well, whether it be supporting one another within the LG family, or giving back in their own way to the causes they're passionate about. We also want the contributions to extend outside the doors of LG, which is why we started our Love to Give charity initiative. Here are a few of the charities we’re grateful to be a part of:

Camp Out For Kids

COFK was founded by LG Construction + Development and Core Partners to give underprivileged kids the opportunity to attend a summer camp in line with their interests. In their first summer in 2008, they were able to send 22 Chicagoland kids to camp. As of today, Camp Out for Kids has sent over 2,000 kids to summer camps around the country, for everything from outdoor adventure to computer programming.
