JDL Development was founded in 1994 by president Jim Letchinger—with a vision of redefining a homeowner's experience in purchasing a new residence. Jim felt that the relationship homebuyers had with their developers was too often wrought with stress and frustration: "buying a home is the most important purchase someone will ever make—I want it to be a fun, enjoyable experience, from start to finish." As a result, customer satisfaction and happiness is the number one priority at JDL: "We spend a lot of time with our clients, allowing them to make important choices in their design and their finishes. We want to help transform the houses they buy into the homes they will live in."
JDL's first projects were smaller residential ones: custom homes and condominium redevelopment, each distinguished by their attention to detail, and their unique sense of materials, lighting and space. As JDL's reputation grew, larger projects became possible: rowhomes, townhomes and commercial properties as well as luxury high rises. JDL has responded to the current trend in housing and is currently developing high end rental properties in Chicago's Old Town, River North and Lakeview neighborhoods. These new upscale apartments feature condo-quality finishes and maintain classic JDL craftsmanship and comfort.
With a dedicated staff, JDL works to consistently deliver on its promise of exceptional design, quality and customer service. The JDL experience remains constant, memorable and committed to your vision of home.
