Brinshore Development collaborated with the City of Evanston's Neighborhood Stabilization Program, Northwestern University, Evanston Hospital and other local employers to provide fully refurbished, energy-efficient, quality housing for their workers as well as families in the larger community. The response has been gratifying, with the first home sold in early January 2012 to a family of four who transitioned from Evanston renters to proud homeowners. Download Pdf
