Chicago, IL | June 04, 2018

MB Real Estate (MBRE) announced today the completion of the Chicago Jewish Day School’s (CJDS) new 2.6-acre campus in Irving Park. MBRE’s Project Services team was hired by CJDS to oversee development of the campus, with VP Brian Toenjes as project lead. Reed Construction and Cannon Design were also hired to provide construction and architectural and design services, respectively. Completion of the new campus represents Phase 1 of the 62,000-square-foot development project.

Six years in the making, CJDS’ new campus includes multiple state-of-the-art buildings, an on-site gymnasium and field, as well as ample outdoor space and parking. To enhance CDJS’ progressive educational approach, the new campus was also built out with flexible space specifically designed for science, library and media, fine arts, student services, and other specializations.

“Our team wants to congratulate Chicago Jewish Day School on their wonderful new campus, and we were delighted to work with them over the last six years to fulfill their goal of creating a facility that will support their innovative educational model for years to come,” said EVP and Managing Director of MBRE’s Project Services division, David Graff. “Reed Construction and Cannon Design complemented our team well, and we were able to successfully deliver the project on time and on budget.”

CJDS’ Adam Levine said of the project, “MBRE was a critical partner in making this project a reality. Their team was very knowledgeable and responsive, often anticipating our needs before we expressed them – and they always found helpful solutions.”

CJDS held a community-wide event celebrating the new campus this past Sunday on June 3rd.
