We Meet Every 1st Wednesday Of The Month



The Southside Builders Association is a not-for-profit association of professional builders and real estate professionals dedicated to the rejuvenation of Chicago’s historic south side. In addition to supporting its members' commitment to building superior quality homes, the organization seeks to provide technical and professional input to the City of Chicago on issues affecting housing. Together with the City and our neighbors, the SSBA has long term plans to contribute to the expansive rebirth of Chicago’s great south side neighborhoods.


Currently, our members are rental property owners and managers active in the development of hundreds of new construction townhomes and condos as well as single-family homes and mixed-use developments on the south side of Chicago in neighborhoods such as North Kenwood, Oakland, Hyde Park, Bronzeville, Woodlawn and South Shore and more.
