Here’s what we believe and how we’ve built our business ….

     Where some see old neglected buildings and wrecking ball fodder, we see new hope.  This is why we continue to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in the revitalization of architecturally significant buildings and neighborhoods and thriving communities.  Promise through repurposing…

     We’re investing in the future of and support the present through various real estate development programs and partnerships with both city-based and minority-owned businesses.  Once neglected husks of great monuments from a by-gone era live again with exciting new uses ranging from loft apartments and restaurants to movie theatres and bowling alleys.

     When revitalizing neighborhoods, it’s about what we term, “urban husbandry.”

     To nurture and care for these neighborhoods from re-birth to sustainability – we must create a shared vision and mission. This requires funding, community support, engagement and constant vigilance – along with a buy-in from those who visit.  Our projects are much more than just a collection of rehabbed buildings; it’s about building a neighborhood block by block. These “building blocks” are the foundation upon which great cities thrive.
