Urban Innovations Aligns with North Wells Capital

Urban in the News

Urban Innovations is pleased to announce its affiliation with the newly launched North Wells Capital, LLC, an endeavor that will expand its nearly 40-year-old mission as one of the innovators in quality commercial space in Chicago.

These two companies will operate as affiliates, but also allow for independence. Co-founded by Howard Conant Jr. and James Fox, North Wells will be able to utilize the resources, knowledge and experience of Urban, but operate separately. The North Wells name is a homage to the first Urban Innovations investment made by the founding family, 444 North Wells, a property they still own today.

Co-Founder and CEO, James Fox is responsible for the North Wells Capital investment strategy, fund-raising and financial operations. He brings with him more than 30 years of real estate and finance experience having most recently served as CFO for Home Partners of America, and prior to that, for Pearlmark Real Estate Partners.

"We are excited about the prospects of growing both North Wells and Urban Innovations," said Mike Scilingo, Asset Manager of North Wells. "We understand the importance of being directly connected to the real estate, our tenants and our local market. Our collective experience in property management, leasing, construction management and financial reporting differentiates us from most other investment managers."
