Gerding Edlen works collaboratively with the best and brightest partners in architecture, engineering, construction and design to create compelling spaces that build community, minimize impact on the environment and add profound value for investors, clients, tenants and residents. Gerding Edlen leads diverse and collaborative teams and manages the decision-making process to deliver high quality, sustainable buildings that meet demographic needs and market demand.
Gerding Edlen’s development efforts are guided by a set of criteria, known as the Principles of Place, where community plays a pivotal role alongside design, technology and sustainability in the success of its properties. Through in-depth assessments of each market, Gerding Edlen positions, brands and programs each property in the earliest stages of design and development to create spaces that align with the property’s demographics, business plan and brand strategy.
Gerding Edlen’s unique expertise and boots-on-the-ground approach to market research results in superior site selection for development and/or retrofit projects and enables the Firm to gain a deep insight into the current demands and desires of renters and tenants. Gerding Edlen aims to create a unique sense of community at each property and to reflect the values and fabric of each local neighborhood or community.
