Orren Pickell Designers & Builders Presents The Great Midwest Landrush

Premier Properties at Significantly Reduced Prices

LAKE BLUFF, IL--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) - Orren Pickell Designers & Builders, a nationally recognized leader in the design/build industry, presents The Great Midwest Landrush of Premier Properties. Orren Pickell Designers & Builders has reduced the price of several luxury parcels of land by 25 percent, all of which are located on Chicago's North Shore.

"We respect the fact that people are currently being extremely conservative, but we want to show them that there has never been a more opportune time to buy," says Todd Wilkins, Executive Vice President of Orren Pickell Designers & Builders. "In addition to the incredible values on coveted properties, construction prices are also significantly lower. Today, people who only dreamed of one day owning a Pickell home are finding it possible."

Included in The Great Midwest Landrush are sites in Highland Park, Lake Bluff, Bannockburn, Long Grove and Michigan. The price of the iconic Lansdowne mansion in Lake Bluff has also been significantly lowered. Built for the head of Rand McNally in 1911, the 14,500-square-foot mansion was designed by Benjamin Marshall, the distinguished architect of the Drake Hotel. The home boasts 24 rooms with 11 bedrooms and nine and one half baths. The home, which was restored just last year, is the last estate available for private enjoyment from the acclaimed architect.

The discount is available for the next 60 days and applies to the first two buyers in each of the firm's subdivisions, such as Tarns of the Moor in Bannockburn and Lansdowne in Lake Bluff, and all of the individual lots. These properties range in price from $580,875for a half acre lot to $2,812,500 for two acres.
