We develop projects for our own account and offer development management services to third parties. We excel at securing entitlements for complex, controversial projects, and managing development risk from conception to completion.

Real Estate Development

Our projects include new rental and for-sale housing, mixed-use projects, conversions of historic buildings, and rehabilitation of existing buildings. Curtis Development has an impressive track record developing both market rate and affordable housing. 



Curtis Development's real world perspective on land use and development issues is critical to the successful management of many controversial entitlement and re-entitlement processes. We have a thorough understanding of complex entitlement environments and regulatory requirements as well as the many, often competing, forces that inform and shape land use and public policies.



Curtis Development offers third party development management services for all phases of project development including site acquisition, entitlements, scheduling, budgeting, consultant and contractor selection and oversight, design management, permitting, and construction management.
