Mr. Kale’s vast experience in the construction industry working with and alongside agency CMs, general contractors, construction managers, owners, developers and asset managers has given him a unique insight into people and project management informing a holistic approach to multifamily development and operations.
Prasan started his professional career in the hotel industry providing engineering management services for The Drake Hotel, assisting in $45MM of renovations in a fully operational hotel. The successful completion of that project transitioned him well into a project engineering position at Turner Construction, providing construction management services for the City of Chicago’s Department of Aviation. During Mr. Kale’s tenure at Turner Construction, he worked on the New North Wing at The Art Institute of Chicago, O’Hare International Airport with Chicago Airports Resources Enterprise, and was also able to apply his electrical engineering background as a Project Manager on the Capital Improvement Program with $350MM of renovation work.
Over the course of his career, Mr. Kale has had the opportunity to perform in Development and Construction Management roles ranging from the iconic 90-story Waterview Tower, 60-story Elysian Hotel and Private Residences, 3,600 unit master-planned Riverline development in the heart of Chicago, to a 2,700 acre master-planned island development in the Caribbean, and several notable urban multifamily high-rise developments. Previously, he managed project and property operations on a 7M square foot portfolio of commercial office, multifamily and retail assets, informing decisions and risk mitigation during the design phase of upcoming developments.
In addition to the satisfaction Mr. Kale receives from building multi-scale development projects, he is also passionate about building a broader sense of purpose in the community. Prasan leverages his professional background and network in helping the USO of Illinois and ReVive Center for Housing and Healing by serving as an active board member. An avid technologist and co-founder of a building concierge platform, Mr. Kale leverages and has an eye for innovation in his ventures.
