Diane Cullinan Oberhelman Inducted Into Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame


(Peoria, IL – May 10, 2019) – Cullinan Properties, Ltd. announces Diane Oberhelman’s induction into the Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame, while continuing to grow with new projects in its portfolio and investment in its hometown community of Peoria.


The Cullinan Properties team is proud to announce that Midwest Real Estate News magazine recently named Cullinan Properties Founding Partner and Chairman, Diane Cullinan Oberhelman, to its 2018 Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame.  Oberhelman was recognized for her career as one of the Midwest’s most successful commercial real estate professionals.  Oberhelman credits her personal and company success to her team’s dedication, and her drive to being able to develop projects that create jobs, fuel local economies and contribute to communities’ quality of place.


“As a company, we strive to make positive economic and life-changing business differences in the communities we serve. Diane with her vision, leadership and perseverance, is the driving force for what we as a company have successfully accomplished over more than 30 years,” Christopher M. West, Partner and CEO of Cullinan Properties, stated.


Cullinan Properties has strong roots in Peoria, having developed the Shoppes at Grand Prairie and much of the surrounding development, as well as Weaver Ridge Golf Course and community; One Technology Plaza and Hamilton Square in downtown Peoria; East Peoria’s Levee District and East Court Village in Pekin; and Quincy Mall, among others.  Diane Oberhelman and her husband, Doug Oberhelman, continue to be committed to Peoria, recently making a capital investment into First Ascent Peoria, a new indoor climbing, yoga and fitness center in Peoria’s Warehouse District.  This project is expected to be a catalyst for future redevelopment, downtown activity and economic growth.


Cullinan Properties continues to expand its operations beyond Peoria, with offices in Chicago and St. Louis.  Cullinan is developing Rock Run Crossings, a 265-acre mixed-use project in Southwest Suburban Chicago.  This up and coming development, located in Joliet near the intersection Interstates 55 and 80, will be a super-regional destination with entertainment, retail, restaurant, hospitality, office and medical uses, recently having announced Regal as an entertainment anchor to the project.  Adding to its list of current projects, Cullinan Properties has also been selected by Saint Louis University to acquire the rights to purchase and develop a 14-acre site near the university. A new 850,000 square foot urban mixed-use development is planned for the site to include multi-family, retail, restaurant, hotel and office components.  Cullinan Properties is developing the new McLean County Veterans Affairs Clinic located in Bloomington, IL opening this fall.
