Dunning Square is anchored by Jewel-Osco and T.J. Maxx, with approximately 25 regional, local, and national retailers and 542 parking spaces. Adjacent to several industrial businesses and office parks as well as Chicago’s Wright College, Dunning Square draws a steady flow of local and visiting traffic.
This 148,600 s.f. retail center is situated at the intersection of Irving Park Rd. and Narragansett Ave. on Chicago’s Northwest Side and serves an extremely dense population of 830,000 residents.
In 1987, Harlem Irving Companies embarked upon a multiyear/multiuse initiative commonly known as Read Dunning Development; located in Chicago, at Irving Park Rd. and Narragansett Ave.
This large-scale project includes Dunning Square shopping center, Glenlake Condominiums (both Harlem Irving owned and developed), and an industrial property component known as the Wright Campus Business Park.
Harlem Irving Companies led the development team in negotiating the acquisition of sites and entitlements, while spearheading the retail and residential components of this unique in-city planned venture.
The Read Dunning undertaking evolved over a 15-year period and was a model public/private effort; as various agencies representing the State of Illinois, City of Chicago, and Village of Norridge all were stakeholders or participants in the project.
