Buckingham Companies

Since its inception more than 25 years ago, Buckingham Companies says it has strived to create places that are a unique blend of architectural distinction, outstanding value and superior service. “As one of the most active owners and managers of multifamily and mixed-use property, Buckingham Companies is known for its dedication to creating value of properties through effective real estate development, construction and property management,” Buckingham states. “Whether it is a beautifully renovated area in the heart of an urban center or a vibrant mixed-use suburban development, a Buckingham property is always one that cultivates and celebrates … the art of living.”

Buckingham Companies says it acquired its first rental property in 1984. The company originally specialized in residential development of affordable housing, and today it operates as a full-service real estate company with capabilities that include development, acquisition, property management and construction of a wide variety of property types. 

Buckingham boasts a portfolio of nearly $1 billion of real estate assets that it owns or manages for third-party owners and institutional partners. This includes more than 100 properties consisting of nearly 15 million square feet of property and approximately 15,000 rental units, it says. 

Columbus Discovery

One such property is The Cole, which Buckingham Companies describes as a luxury urban and residential retail development in Columbus, Ind. This property boasts brand-new apartments with modern design in a central location in downtown Columbus, close to retail shops, restaurants and ample parking. 

Groundbreaking for this structure took place in October 2011, according to The Republic. The local newspaper also reported the project will cost $18 million, will take 18 months to complete and will house 146 apartments. A parking garage is also part of the project, The Republic reported. 

Buckingham Companies says The Cole will have high-end finishes and a list of proposed amenities, including a workout room, theater, computer lounge and a gourmet group kitchen/dining area. 

“This development is drawing immediate interest from the growing list of people who are looking for more urban living opportunities in Columbus,” Buckingham says. 

Development Delivery

Buckingham Companies specializes in multifamily management, which it manages for its own portfolio as well as institutional clients. The firm says it has acquired and developed high-quality multifamily properties and continues to pursue new developments.

“We constantly explore new multifamily development and renovation opportunities across the country,” the firm says. “Relying on expertise, creativity and a network of industry relationships, Buckingham Companies continues to grow and build toward the future.”

For student housing, Buckingham says it works closely with colleges and universities to develop high-quality housing and mixed-use facilities that help drive student recruitment and support the academic mission.

“Our professional expertise and thorough understanding of the unique needs of each and every student community guide everything we do, from design and construction to marketing and management,” the firm says. 

Even in mixed-use developments, Buckingham Companies has a reputation for successful deliveries. The company says it has experience in historic reuse and urban development, as well as in establishing new mixed-use developments.

“Building from a core expertise in residential development and construction, Buckingham has become a leader in the integration of residential and commercial uses to create distinctive environments in areas including residential, retail, office and hospitality,” the firm says.

Buckingham also offers commercial development, including retail, office and commercial space that can be tailored to clients’ needs. “It’s not just bricks and mortar,” it says. “It’s the experience and the location. At Buckingham Companies, we work with each client to find and create that unique destination.”

Managing Capabilities

As a property management firm, Buckingham says it offers value creation strategies, strong management systems and innovation to a diverse client base. “We have a team of talented professionals who handle regulatory issues, capital and maintenance needs, revenue enhancement, expense management, marketing and more, to ensure [a customer’s] investment property is actively and effectively managed,” the firm says. 

Buckingham has been awarded the Accredited Management Organization designation. The staff works with a client base that includes real estate investment trusts, nonprofits, pension funds, investment advisors and special servicers, and special asset departments of leading financial institutions.
