Real Estate Developers and Investors

Specializing in Market and Site Selection

At COMVEST Properties, we are proud of our reputation for expertise in market and site selection for commercial real estate development. Founded in 2003, our collaborations with strategic development partners have resulted in a distinguished development history, positioning us as preferred developers with a keen focus on building to suit or innovatively redeveloping existing properties.

Preferred Development Partnerships and Project Highlights

Our development portfolio includes being a preferred developer for renowned brands such as Walgreens in Louisiana and Mississippi. Notably, our development activities extend across various states, exemplifying our versatility and capacity to manage projects of significant scale and complexity, including:

  • Development of retail, single-tenant, and outparcel projects across Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, and Montana,
  • Development of the United States’ first stand-alone Kay Jewelers in Warner Robins, Georgia,
  • Redevelopment of neighborhood shopping centers and vacant big boxes in Mississippi and Georgia,
  • Renovation and historic preservation of a landmark restaurant in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Building to Suit: Tailored Solutions for Every Client

Our approach to development is tenant-focused, prioritizing value creation and risk management. This tenant-centric perspective, combined with our in-house capabilities and robust relationships with national and regional contract partners, ensures the delivery of superior retail properties. Our clients have included Petco, Academy Sports & Outdoors, McAlister’s Deli, and Starbucks, among others.

Expanding Horizons: LifeCare Properties

In 2018, we expanded our portfolio through the establishment of LifeCare Properties, marking our entry into the institutional grade senior housing sector. In partnership with senior living operator, Blake Management Group, LifeCare has developed over $100 Million in The Blake branded senior living communities.

At COMVEST Properties, our dedication to excellence, combined with our comprehensive market knowledge and development expertise, positions us as ideal partners for market and site selection, build-to-suit projects, and redevelopments. Whether retail spaces, restaurants, senior living communities, professional or medical offices, our team is equipped to ensure every project is not just developed but meets and exceeds client expectations.
