McHugh Construction, Brown & Momen Complete South Side Multifamily

 Chicago-based McHugh Construction and its joint venture partner Brown & Momen, a minority-owned business enterprise, have completed the $24.3-million construction of 508 Pershing at Oakwood Shores, a four-story, 53-unit affordable apartment development in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood. Developed by The Community Builders (TCB), the mixed-use, mixed-income building is part of the larger Oakwood Shores revitalization plan.

“This project exemplifies the power of a public-private partnership to complete a much-needed mixed-income community for Bronzeville residents and retailers,” said Mike Meagher, president of McHugh Construction. “It has also been rewarding to be part of a project that will positively impact an entire South Side neighborhood.”

TCB’s partners in the project include Granite Development, Ujima, the Chicago Department of Housing, 4th Ward Alderman Sophia King, the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), and UnitedHealth Group.
