Developers Collaborative

is an association of like-minded independent real estate developers interested in projects that build community.

While this can mean different things, core themes like smart growth, environmental sustainability, affordable housing, and innovative design are central in our work.

We’re not like most developers

We make an extra effort to listen to neighbors and employ creative solutions in order to create successful places.

We employ a community-based approach to planning and building our projects, and we frequently participate in public-private partnerships to achieve public goals.

We value highly our reputation for creating developments that enhance their surrounding neighborhoods and address community needs. Take a look at our work and imagine what we could do for your own community.

Smart Growth

The core of our “smart growth” philosophy is really based on a simple concept: common sense applied to land use.

This means creating developments that revitalize town centers and cities, not only by providing new space for new residents and businesses, but also by guiding private investment into communities where people already live. Smart growth should also reduce the surrounding community’s tax burden by using existing public infrastructure as effectively as possible.

And our focus on mixed use and compact development also helps reduce traffic by keeping trips short and offering residents options other than driving. Finally, by focusing development in our town, village, and city centers, we can help preserve rural areas and open space nearby from unattractive sprawl-style developments.

Values

At Developers Collaborative we believe a developer has great responsibility.

The ways that we intervene in the build environment will affect peoples’ lives for a long time. We feel all developers owe it their respective communities to do more than just make a piece of land or building generate the highest short term financial return possible.

Serving the community while creating a financially viable development is what we do best, and we see smart growth as a primary vehicle to achieve it.
