The strategies and tactics for developing communities for seniors haven't changed much in 40 years. Until now.
We spent 20 years building some of the most prestigious, most successful communities around the country. And we're proud of that work. But we won't be able to serve the wave of tomorrow's mature Americans without changing. The buildings we need won't materialize until we change the process we use. We created Drive Development Partners to lead the industry for the next 40 years.
Our Partners are your partners.
We created Drive for this moment - for anyone who has a plan to serve elders but wants the urgency and, well, drive to get a project done exceptionally. We didn't choose the name Drive by accident. Our energy, skills and tools help great teams create great projects very deliberately, but in an entirely new way. The founding partner learned senior living as a contractor - by seeing each corner guard and cart storage door get selected, purchased, delivered and used. And 12 months later would see what had become of those (and dozens of other) parts. The tools and skills learned to assemble the buildings efficiently combined with a keen interest in how those buildings operated with residents gave Drive a profile you can't get from design, finance or real estate.
We. Know. Senior Living.
We dare to ask: what if projects were fun?
Let there be no mistake, real estate development of any sort is risky business at very high stakes. Serious issues will arise and difficult problems will need to be solved. But it doesn't have to be drudgery.
It always takes a team but if that team knows their stuff and gels under the right leadership, the process can actually be fun. In fact, we believe a team that has fun is better equipped to tackle those issues and problems than one which plods through each step.
We love creating new projects for our clients, the staff that work in them and the people who live in them. Our best friends feel the same way. Because we made friends doing this very serious thing in a fun way.
