The Hawthorne Group
Founded by Dr. Ganesan Visvabharathy, a noted developer for nearly 30 years, the Hawthorne Group of Companies started out with a small investment firm in Burr Ridge, Illinois.
From the beginning, the Hawthorne vision has been to achieve and maintain a reputation as the premier, “Best Value” builder in the nation. In over 28 years, we’ve earned that reputation by building thousands of beautiful residential developments, and now we are extending the same ‘quality tentacles’ around the globe by creating footprints in India, and Africa.
Additionally, as part of its commitment to ‘greentech’, Hawthorne builds residential developments using 100% green technology called RIST HOMES, where each home is also equipped with solar power. RIST HOMES also boast of numerous green features that are unparalleled in the industry.
Also, as part of its commitment to green energy, Hawthorne Energy, the energy subsidiary, now manufactures several energy-efficient products, starting from simple solar lanterns to LED streetlights that use proprietary thermal management systems for improved efficiency.. Hawthorne Energy also develops power projects in the solar, wind, geothermal, and plasma areas, utilizing the most advanced US technologies.
