Founded in 1985 by Michael Lerner, MCZ Development has become one of America’s premier real estate developers. MCZ leverages its extensive experience in construction and general contracting to specialize in high-density infill development projects all over the country.
To this day MCZ excels in taking existing buildings and infill parcels and re-purposes them to create great value for their investors and the cities they improve.
MCZ targets architecturally superb, vintage office and manufacturing buildings in concentrated, non-traditional residential areas. In doing so MCZ had been able to create vibrant neighborhoods all over Chicago, as well as other cities.

Today these projects are considered the linchpins of the development that followed. Through MCZ’s trailblazing Chicago was able to experience an urban renaissance unparalleled since the Great Fire. To this day MCZ excels in taking existing buildings and infill parcels and re-purposes them to create great value for their investors and the cities they improve.
In recent years, MCZ has exponentially increased the number of developments outside of the Midwest market by moving into areas throughout Miami-Date county in Florida and other flourishing cities. The progress has been a natural progression for the company, as it continues to offer a full range of developments including condo conversions, new construction high-rise condominiums, and mixed use projects.
While we are certainly proud of our history, we are definitely not ones to rest on our laurels. Watch as we continue to bring innovation to city developments around the nation.
