Atwater Development

Atwater Development specializes in self-funded commercial build to suit developments for national retailers, with a focus on single tenant projects. Our primary goal is to provide strategic expansion solutions by streamlining the retail development process for our clients, from site selection to grand opening. We are committed to delivering quality projects on budget and on time.

Our team coordinates each stage of the development from site selection, acquisition and negotiation, architecture and engineering, due diligence and permitting, finance, and construction management through delivery to grand opening. Our national coverage and ability to self-fund enable us to simplify the development and expansion process for our clients.

In addition to standard development projects, we have also successfully structured public-private partnerships with municipalities, paving the way for development projects that would not otherwise occur.
