Housing Development

Demand for new housing investment is growing across Racine County. The local population is expected to grow due to recent business growth and other local development. A variety of housing types are needed to attract and retain talent working at Racine County businesses. Our local municipalities actively work with qualified developers and investors to facilitate single family, multi-family and redevelopment projects.
