DEVELOPMENT

Building Community from the Outside In

At Ackermann Group, every development is personal. We take care to preserve and enhance the unique qualities of your community to create a cohesive, purposeful development where people want to live and work. Great communities are built on an authentic understanding of the community itself. We create a one-of-a-kind experience by adapting our development philosophy to integrate into the existing landscape.

Our team collaborates with local leaders to understand the individual and community needs to better serve the markets we enter. Our strategic process allows us to thoughtfully weave residential and urban infill developments into the community culture using a realistic approach that compliments the lifestyle of the surrounding area.

Together We Design Useful Places

Ackermann Group’s development practices are rooted in the fiscally responsible principles of New Urbanism planning. We design stable, walkable and diverse communities that positively contribute to the suburban and urban core and provide a sense of place for residents and visitors.

We facilitate all aspects of the development process from land acquisition and financing to building materials, lighting systems and site amenity selection. We create friendly and inviting spaces by examining market conditions to understand how our development will fit into the marketplace. Each development requires comprehensive pre-planning and due diligence to ensure long-term success and sustainability. For best results, our team reviews the surrounding services and infrastructure to guide the architecture, design and approach for each development.

Together We Leverage Public Finance

With nearly eight decades of experience in real estate development, we’ve refined our processes to become experts in urban infill, Tax Increment Financing (TIF), securing state grants, New Market Tax Credits, and local and state tax abatement. These tools make it possible to build infrastructure and invest in the public space of a community to make development possible.

We have successfully developed office, retail and mixed use projects and residential communities. Informed by our experience, Ackermann Group anticipates a vibrant future of continued success in residential, commercial and mixed use development.
