For 40 years, Pat FitzGerald has made numerous innovations in urban infill housing, contributing more than 20,000 units to Chicago’s housing stock including affordable, public, student, market-rate, and luxury housing; loft conversions and mixed-use buildings in low-, mid-, and high-rise formats.
As both an architect and developer, he has built many units that have shown the viability of some long-neglected formats including townhomes, rowhouses and courtyard apartment buildings.
Pat’s work focuses on how projects contribute to the dynamic of existing neighborhoods and help to create positive environments where they don’t currently exist while acting as a pioneer and champion for sustainable design and sophisticated urban planning concepts.
