The Cordish Companies is the largest and most successful national developer of real estate projects completed in partnership with public sector entities, including city, state and tribal governments as well as not-for-profits such as universities and hospitals.
The majority of these public-private partnerships involve high-profile developments that are of unique significance to the cities and communities in which they are located. Of note, many of these public-private developments were extraordinarily challenging with a history of failed attempts by other developers prior to The Cordish Companies successful involvement. Examples include the Company’s prominent role in the redevelopment of Baltimore's world famous Inner Harbor. In addition to Baltimore, public sector and non-profit partners include dozens of entities, such as the cities of Houston, TX, Charleston, SC; Salt Lake City, UT; Louisville, KY; Atlantic City, NJ; Kansas City, MO; St Louis, MO; Hampton, VA; Philadelphia, PA as well as universities such as Johns Hopkins University.
The success of The Cordish Companies’ projects have served to revitalize numerous distressed urban areas, yielding tremendous direct economic benefits to the public sector, and perhaps even more importantly, the developments have served as catalysts for the broader revitalization of their surrounding communities.
Over many decades, The Cordish Companies proven track record of successfully completing high-profile, public-private projects has been well documented. The Cordish Companies is proud to have been recognized with the most prestigious awards in real estate development including an unprecedented seven Urban Land Institute Awards of Excellence for different public-private developments.
