D3 Development, Inc. is a real estate development company focused on owning, developing and operating real property that promises a reasonable return to investors and that creates a positive impact on the community. These projects typically are located in downtown development zones or historically under-utilized areas and frequently use creative financing sources such as Federal and State historic tax credits, new markets tax credits, and public-private partnerships. Our goal is to develop projects that will be a source of pride for local communities in both how projects are executed and the impacts those projects have upon the local communities in which they are located.
