Property Development

Martin Commercial Properties have been industry leaders in Michigan commercial real estate for over 50 years. We know how to build something great. Whether your space is meant for office, retail, or industrial use, we can bring your vision to life.

Project Management

Martin Property Development provides project management services for building owners and tenants of commercial real estate. The overall process of completing a successful project is considerably more complex than just hiring a general contractor; that’s where we come in. Martin Property Development acts as the client advocate, managing the entire process from project inception through completion. Through lasting relationships and an intelligent, experienced staff, we work hard to assemble the most qualified team to deliver the best product on time and on budget.

Development Services

Martin Property Development provides build-to-suit and redevelopment services as the owner’s representative. Our clients range from investors to users of commercial real estate, alike. We utilize a unique client advocate approach toward the development or redevelopment of commercial real estate to make the entire process easier and more efficient for our clients.

Build-to-suit or redevelopment real estate solutions can dramatically impact each client’s bottom line by matching with its projected business growth, while also improving employee morale and productivity. The success of a build-to-suit or redevelopment project starts well in advance of the physical construction, in the planning phase. The planning phase can be a fraction of the overall project cost, but is where the majority of project decisions and potential mistakes are made. This is where we come in.</>

We specialize in pre-development services, driving value for our clients by establishing clear project objectives for scope and budget well before construction starts. By asking our clients the right questions from the onset, we can understand our clients’ goals, thus avoiding potential costly mistakes. Through strong leadership, diverse operating platforms, extensive market knowledge and experience, we add value in every stage of the development process.

Construction Management

Optimizing design, mitigating costs, and managing risks throughout construction.

Ranging from construction management to development consulting and implementation, emphasizing capital planning; value engineering and cost mitigation; design optimization; risk management; environmental management; permitting and entitlement; quality control; and job close-out.

Martin Property Development specializes in the coordination of tenant improvement and construction projects for commercial property owners and managers, individual tenants, and corporate facilities managers. We are dedicated to efficiently and cost-effectively organizing the tenant improvement and construction processes, ensuring outstanding craftsmanship with accountability to project budget
