Connecting Sound Economics With Experience in Real Estate


From single-family fix & flips to shopping center de-malling and lots of projects in between, Concordia Realty has implemented hundreds of projects that have increased revenues, added curb appeal and revitalized communities.  

Concordia Realty has turned many underperforming shopping centers into profit centers, in addition to taking apartment buildings and converting them to highly profitable sold out condominium projects.  

We have also completed adaptive reuse projects, converting commercial properties to residential.  From smaller scale condominium conversions to subdividing a retail property and selling off portions to national apartment developers such as Wood Partners and Lincoln Properties.

Concordia Realty has performed teardowns and then completed build-to-suits for net-lease single-tenant investments.

With redevelopment you can capitalize on a property’s location to create a new product.  In other situations we have implemented upgrades as tenants roll over, so you can increasing rents as new tenants enjoy the benefits of remodeled units.

Concordia Realty is well positioned to maximize the value of Mixed Use Properties because of our familiarity with retail real estate, multifamily and office properties.

Concordia Realty Corporation then actively researches each area’s demographics to determine the correct design for the most profitable tenants.

With a strong practical knowledge of the retail and residential real estate shopping center business, we provide the full range of services needed to turn stale properties into vibrant active community centers.  

Revitalization and/or redevelopment enhances your property’s marketability and rental rates.

The competition to retain current tenants and attract new tenants is fierce.  Existing properties may suffer from obsolete design, physical neglect, inappropriate tenant mix, changing markets, or new competition.
