As the owner, developer and construction manager, AvalonBay Communities Inc. believes it can deliver a higher level of quality on projects than competitors, Director of Construction Rick Borowski explains. “It makes a more symbiotic relationship between the owner and developer,” he states. “We’re aligned for all the same goals.”

The latest in a long line of successful apartment developments spearheaded by Mill Creek Residential Trust is expected to open its doors this year. Leasing is under way on the Concord Mews complex, a development of 350 luxury apartments and townhomes in Concord, Mass., with tenants anticipated to move in within the next few months.

Patience and persistence in finding funding for a large apartment development near the University of North Carolina Charlotte is paying off for the project’s developer. Tampa-based Phillips Development & Realty broke ground in September 2011 on the $28 million Phillips Mallard Creek class A+ apartment community at 655 West Mallard Creek Church Road in Charlotte.

Once the mayor of the entire city of Atlanta, Sam Massell is now focusing on one booming section of the city. As president of the Buckhead Coalition, he is charged with helping to guide the development of this southern sub-city that the coalition describes as a “bustling business center . . . [with] serene and stable neighborhoods.” 

The partnership between Western Builders of Amarillo and Sears Methodist Retirement Systems Inc. epitomizes the benefits contractors and project owners enjoy when they maintain long-term relationships. The pair, which have worked together on retirement communities throughout Texas for more than 10 years, came together to enhance the end-result of the Meadow Lake Retirement Community in Tyler, Texas. 

Beginning in 2003, residents of Eagan, Minn., fought against a local developer’s plan to build approximately 480 homes on 121 acres, with 30 acres of open space, on the former site of a golf course. This disagreement continued until 2010, when city officials settled out of court and allowed the construction of a variety of homes on the space. 

According to Joe Hall Roofing President Brett Hall, success in the roofing business has a lot to do with being in the right place at the right time – even if no one else would consider it to be that way. “What makes smaller companies into bigger companies is hailstorms, and massive hailstorms,” Hall says. 

With its newest development located on the north property line of Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla., Epoch Properties Inc. is working to ensure the theme park’s employees and other community members see the value in Landmark at Universal. The property is in an area with A+ rated schools, is close to transportation and is within walking distance of many entertainment options, but that is just a start of what it has to offer. Epoch Properties is working to ensure Landmark at Universal reflects the quality, service and commitment to detail that the developer has become known for.
