Regina Stilp
Principal

As a founding partner of Farpoint Development, Regina Stilp brings her knowledge and extensive design successes to transform Chicago’s most forward-thinking properties. Formerly a Principal and Director of Design, she oversaw the strategic transformation of obsolete buildings into highly desirable properties.

Regina’s belief of honoring Chicago’s architectural past by repurposing buildings for future generations is obvious through her extensive resume. She has transformed Chicago’s 400 S. Jefferson from concrete loft barracks into Hillshire Foods corporate headquarters and 1000 W. Fulton, a 100-year old former cold storage warehouse, into Google’s Chicago headquarters. Her dedication to preservation is reflected in the dramatic transformation of 111 N. Canal from a functionally obsolete building into a high-tech hub for Uber, Twitter & Gogo.

She graduated with a BA from University of Iowa and lives in Wilmette with her husband and three kids.
