Inland Marketing Development Pods at Master-Planned Resort

Inland Real Estate Commercial Brokerage has been named the exclusive representative to sell development pods at Heritage Harbor in Ottawa, IL, 80 miles southwest of Chicago. The Heritage Harbor development is a master-planned resort community that surrounds a marina on the Illinois Waterway.

The property consists of 142 acres, including a 32-acre protected harbor marina with deep water access to the Illinois River. The development is approved for nearly 600 residential units, which include a mix of detached and attached homes. The current property owner has completed 102 residential units, with eight units currently under construction and 72 shovel-ready sites.

“Phased development is ongoing in multiple locations within the community, and ownership is continuing to expand,” said Eric Spiess, SVP with Inland Commercial Brokerage. “Heritage Harbor has experienced year-over-year growth and continues to show increased signs of strength, signaled by 21 home sales in 2018.”
