Magellan Development Team Beneficial Towards Expanding Operations



Sean Linnane is Magellan Development Group’s new Senior Vice President.

Linnane will be responsible for evaluating residential, retail and mixed-use development opportunities for Magellan. He will also manage and coordinate development activities related to financing, government, design and sales strategies at numerous existing projects. These projects will include both land and building development efforts for Lakeshore East, the company’s largest undertaking.



Brian Gordon is Magellan Development Group’s new Senior Vice President.


Gordon is a key advisor in financing, retail and mixed-use development opportunities. He takes the lead in the expansion of out-of Chicago market projects–leading the way is Coast and LPM Apartments, a rental tower in Loring Park in Minneapolis. He is also President of Magellan Project Services, a division specializing in new business as well as workouts.




Kristopher Schwengel is Magellan Development Group’s new Senior Vice President of Construction.

Schewngel is responsible for all construction activities, including project analysis and execution of master-planned communities and large-scale mixed-use projects. He is currently responsible for managing the construction of Coast and LPM Apartments. Prior to this, he worked on the construction for the Chicago Bears’s Halas Hall, the American Queen steamship and the Mississippi Queen steamship in New Orleans.



Jeremy Oremland is Magellan Development Group’s new Vice President of Development.


Oremland is responsible for evaluating residential, retail and mixed-use development opportunities nationwide. He is involved in the financial structuring, design, entitlement, construction, marketing and sales of all Magellan projects, including Lakeshore East.


While Magellan’s extensive portfolio of real estate developments has been centered in and around Chicago’s central business district, President David Carlins explains that the newly promoted employees will be beneficial to expand this.

“Our horizons go well beyond Chicago,” he said. “And with their experiences, we will be instrumental in expanding our scope of operations.”
