Armed with excellence, Vilas Development Corporation, based in Oakbrook Terrace, was founded in 1982 by
Dr. Ganesan Visvabharathy (pictured top right). He has built Vilas from a small real estate investment firm
into a company recognized and respected in the Chicago-area building and development industry for its commitment
to rebuilding Chicago's neighborhoods.
In doing so, Vilas Development has become one of the area's most successful builder/developers. Perhaps more significantly,
Visvabharathy (known as "Dr. Vish" in the building community) has revitalized many of the city's residential areas which have
been largely ignored by other developers - both recognizing their potential as well as providing quality housing for the Chicago families.
His success, made up of a few basic elements, can be attributed to the kind of forward-thinking that is typical of Vilas: maintain
a thorough understanding of the development business, including staying abreast of current issues and trends; seek out underdeveloped
properties that can significantly benefit from value-added construction; and preserve the client-developer relationship throughout the
duration of a project to ensure our client's best interests. Smart management strategies, created by a team of engineers and business
leaders, is just one of the components that has earned Vilas it's reputable name.
