ROSEMONT, IL-Danny Queenan will take over as president and CEO of Opus North Corp. and O.R.E. Development Corp. The promotion comes following four years of work with Opus North, most recently as EVP overseeing all real estate and construction for the firm, and previously as vice president and general manager of Chicago metro area operations. Queenan has been responsible for some of the firm’s largest developments in the Chicago region in recent years.

“Since joining the Opus team in 2005, Danny has quickly worked his way through the ranks, showcasing his strong leadership capabilities and in-depth knowledge of the regional real estate market,” says Mark Rauenhorst, chairman and CEO of Opus. Queenan will manage the offices in Chicago, Milwaukee, Indianapolis and Columbus, OH and oversee all area development, design and construction in his new position. Queenan was out of town and unavailable for comment by publication time.

Locally, Queenan has been involved in the development of the 552,000-square-foot Burr Ridge Village Center mixed-use development in Burr Ridge, IL; the 251,000-square-foot Highland Landmark V office building in Downers Grove, IL; and the two-building Briarwood Business Center, which offers more than 400,000 square feet of industrial in Mount Prospect, IL.

Most recently, two retailers signed leases for 7,000 square feet at Burr Ridge Village Center late last year, bringing the retail component of the $150-million project to 75% occupied. Meanwhile, the development’s 196 condominiums are around 80% sold and 36,000 square feet of office condos are 85% sold. Last week, Opus announced DeVry Inc. had signed on for 145,000 square feet at the firm’s Highland Landmark V, which remains only 60% leased.

Previous to his current employment with Opus, Queenan served as VP of development for the Ryan Cos. for four years and director of real estate development for Opus Northwest out of Minneapolis for five years.
