Eisenberg Foundation’s Real Estate Challenge Focuses on Woodlawn

For the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation’s 11th Annual Real Estate Challenge on April 10, student teams will be tasked with creating and conceptualizing a hypothetical development plan for a South Side site in the Woodlawn neighborhood near Jackson Park. The site is a short walk to the Museum of Science & Industry and the future Obama Presidential Center.

Because this year’s Challenge will be virtual, organizers are encouraging teams from across the country to participate. This is the second year the Challenge is being held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Eisenberg Foundation is partnering with the Chicago Department of Planning and Development and DL3 Realty on this program. Co-chairs for the initiative are associate board members Stefani Gutmann, Brookfield Development, and Jaron Kleiman, Shapack Partners.

“This year’s competition presents an opportunity to capitalize on the excitement and energy of the future Obama Presidential Center, as well as prompt students to heavily consider the impact their strategy will have on the surrounding community,” said Kleiman.
