About Baker Development

Baker Development Corporation is an experienced, well capitalized, privately owned real estate development company based in Chicago that has built a reputation for getting politically sensitive deals approved and complicated development projects constructed.


Since its formation in 1985, BDC and its partners have been involved in the acquisition, development and construction of virtually every class of real estate, including high-rise residential, big-box retail, office, hotel, multi-family (rental and for-sale), mixed-use, loft conversions, townhomes, retail, adaptive reuse properties, fractured condominiums and brownfield redevelopment projects.

No matter the category or class of project we’re working on, BDC is consistently known for one thing:  appealing, high-quality properties that people want to own, use or visit.
