In early 2014, D.G.E. acquired over a dozen parcels of land. The private-owned lots under D.G.E.’s name are stretched from the City of Chicago’s West Side to the South Suburbs in Ford Heights, Illinois.
The mixed-used goal of the acquired land is to develop new construction homes that will be used for affordable housing to a diverse group of families, urban farming, and a playground.
“I am really excited about the intended goal for the land usage. We are moving with dedicated intention…as we have in the past, and am pleased with our outside support. I look forward to creating systems that will increase jobs, sustainable & affordable living, and even increase the consciousness of health & wellness through urban farming, especially in minority communities. “ – Founder, Taryn LaRae
