In addition to current and completed projects, the St. HOPE Development Company strategically purchased several properties in Oak Park to ensure they would maintain the historic culture of Oak Park.
These buildings were sold to developers who believe in maintaining the cultural integrity of the neighborhood.
One of these building include the 5,200 square foot mixed-use project located across from the original St. HOPE Headquarters office. With two commercial spaces and two residential units on the second floor have become the Grounded Offices and Arthur Henry’s.
A second building acquired by Oak Park Developer Ron Vrilakas is located caddy-corner from 40 Acres on 35th Street & Broadway. The former Urban League building has been newly renovated to become the popular La Venadita’s restaurant.
