Case Studies Real Estate Development

Amanda Janzen – Schafer Richardson

If, just a little over three years ago, you had taken a walk to 300 Second Street SE in Minneapolis, Minnesota, you would have been struck by an eyesore not unlike many that pockmark former mill cities. A two-story building of smudged, light-colored brick, drooping on one side with widespread mold and rust, windows boarded […]

BlackRock Construction

Adam Hergenrother respects the privacy of his clients and doesn’t boast about the prominent people who have bought some of the high-end houses that BlackRock Construction, the company he and his brother Tom co-founded in 2012, has built in beautiful, bucolic Vermont and upstate New York. Nevertheless, word gets around, and a couple of years […]

Bradley Jones – Harristown Development Corp.

There’s more than a smattering of early 1970s idealism that’s sustained in Pennsylvania’s capital city of Harrisburg, and it’s a mindset that can cut across all political, ethnic and demographic lines. After all, most any constituency would favor an already desirable downtown becoming an even more livable and exciting place. And that has been the […]

Buzz Oates

Usually, after a piece of property is sold the builder lets go of all responsibility concerning the project, unless of course that property was developed and built by a company such as Buzz Oates, which has a longer-term interest. Based in Sacramento, California, the vertically integrated development and asset management company specializes in building large […]

Center 615

For many professionals, especially the young up-and-comers who so drive the hi-tech, innovative and creative economies, inspiration may not easily spring up among the bland office cubicles where Dilbert is doomed to toil. Co-working spaces may better nurture that all-important start-up feel and foster a sense of community. Then again, traditional offices still serve a […]

Chinburg Properties

In the mid-1800s, seeing a mill in New England was about as common as spotting a Red Sox or Patriots cap is today. There were thousands of mills scattered across the region, and towns depended on these local factories not just for the items produced, but even more so for the jobs. Southern Maine’s cities […]

Community Preservation Partners

Housing authorities do a lot of good in low-income communities by providing affordable apartment options for locals—but these same agencies often catch flak from tenants and the media for neglecting older, deteriorating properties. It’s not necessarily the housing authority’s fault; when tax dollars are limited, they simply can’t handle some of the larger, more complex […]

Crestone Builders Inc.

Many is the young person who, even after college, doesn’t know just what it is he or she wants to do. “I’ve got to find myself,” that new graduate might say. Then there are people like Eric Skott. The founder of Crestone Builders Inc. in Watertown, South Dakota, was just 16 when he found himself […]

Dean Sorenson – Kendal at Hanover

Dean Sorenson is not one of the 400 people living at Kendal at Hanover, a nonprofit mix of residences for independent and assisted living near the banks of the Connecticut River in New Hampshire. But as director of facilities, Sorenson has come to call the 65-acre campus home, embracing its Quaker values of love, respect […]
