The president and founder of MK Equity Corporation, Matt Kihnke, has spent much of his life involved in different facets of real estate. Beginning in 1996, real estate development became his focus, passion, and career evolving from a small business rehabbing single-family homes to developing large multi-unit condominium buildings in Chicago. Kihnke’s projects exhibit a certain flair for design and style emphasizing an architecturally forward bias and an undeniable practicality.
The inspiration for each project emanates from two words: simple perfection. This mentality is the driving force for creating buildings that offer the epitome of luxury without superfluity. Every wall, beam, window, and façade is intentional, contributing to the beauty of the entire structure. The result is a cohesive whole—a building which is perfect in its simplicity, and simple in its perfection.
With a mind not to conform to overdone architecturally bland designs, Kihnke continues testing the industry’s boundaries, always seeking to outperform his own standards. Each building enhances components of its predecessor, echoing the motif, “the best is yet to come.” Practically speaking, each project brings greater efficiency, as there is always room for growth. It is largely due to this vision coupled with his tenacious work ethic that Kihnke has been able to produce many award-winning projects since the beginning of his career.
After completing many successful buildings in Chicago, Michigan, Florida, and the Caribbean, Kihnke continues to set his sights on unique projects that allow for a continual push towards excellence and unique design.
