Ron Benach founded Lexington Homes in 1973 with Lexington Green in Schaumburg. From there, Lexington went on to build a large portion of Schaumburg’s new residential housing over the next decade. Many of these early communities brought a new townhouse product to the market, introduced by Lexington called the “Coach Home.” As Lexington grows, they expand into many other Northwest Suburban locations with townhomes and single family homes, even introducing the first “Zero Lot Line” single family concept to the area at New England Village in Streamwood.

Lexington executives continue their legacy as Concord Homes, branching out well beyond the Northwest Suburbs, creating communities in high-growth areas such as Aurora, Plainfield, Yorkville, Gurnee, and Glendale Heights. In Lake in the Hills, Concord sparks over a decade of explosive growth by developing Meadowbrook, a Master Planned Community stretching from Randall Rd. all the way to Rt. 47. Over the next ten plus years, numerous homebuilders, including Concord develop over 4000 single family and townhomes on the Meadowbrook property. Late in the 90s, Concord opens a city division, building mid- and high-rise Condos via adapted reuse and new construction, including the Sexton in River North, Concord City Centre at Washington and Wells, and 933 W. Van Buren and 1000 W. Adams in the newly emerging “West Loop” Neighborhood, as well as a Master Planned Community in Hyde Park called Renaissance Place consisting of condos, townhouses and single family.
