Conor Commercial Real Estate

Oversees firm's development projects in Chicago and U.S.

Led Conor's exit from Hoffman Estate, IL's 70-acre Huntington 90 Business Park

Helped Conor enter the Savannah, GA market with the acquisition and development of Southeast Gateway

As a Development Manager at Conor Commercial Real Estate, Fausone oversees the firm’s development projects in the greater Chicago area and southeastern United States. He monitors economic and industry trends and identifies new ground-up and adaptive reuse development opportunities. Additionally, Fausone leads the development team through all steps from land acquisition to entitlements, design, construction, lease-up and disposition.

As a registered professional engineer with a background in construction Fausone offers a comprehensive understanding of design and construction process that many development professionals might lack. Fausone is also the only development professional at Conor working in both the multi-family and industrial business units, and he has been an integral part of the company’s re-entry into the multi-family development space.  Currently, he is sourcing and evaluating Conor’s first residential development project since 2015, and is developing new, custom-built underwriting models for the national multi-family development team.

In 2021, Fausone activities included Conor’s successful exit from the 70-acre Huntington 90 Business Park (Hoffman Estates, IL) and the 265,550-square-foot North Avenue Commerce Center (in Winfield, IL). He also helped spearhead Conor’s entry into the Savannah, GA industrial market, with the acquisition and development of the $100-million, 1.2-million-square-foot Southeast Gateway, a speculative development.

Outside of Conor, Fausone is an active Developing Leaders member of NAIOP’s Chicago chapter, as well as the Urban Land Institute’s Young Leaders Group and Chicago Product Council.

These are just a few reasons we chose Fausone as one of Chicago/Midwest’s 2022 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s sixth annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
