SITE SELECTION

Pioneer Markets

While many developers focus on cresting Downtown and cresting markets, VDG focuses on gentrifying and transitional markets that are just on the outskirt of these high demand locations where the convenience and direct access to popular business and lifestyle districts are still prevalent. However, incentives and rezoning options are often more easily obtained.

QUALITY CONTROL

Build a Superior Product

The communities are scaled to create a neighborhood atmosphere and designed for social interaction. While each of the residences provides upscale finishes and comfortable floor plans that maximize space and storage, they are also built to the highest construction specifications and energy standards

VALUE CREATION

Increase the bottom line

Successful opportunities begin and end with organic value creation. By implementing a series of proven benchmarks our shareholders experience enhanced front-end value.

OUR MISSION

VENTURES DEVELOPMENT GROUP (VDG)
VDG believes in a “value creation” approach when taking on real estate development opportunities. Whether through Rezoning, Entitlement Reform or Incentive Procurement, VDG believes all great and successful development opportunities begin and end with organic value creation.  Implementation of these key characteristics generally translates to enhanced front-end shareholder value, better risk adjusted development programs and better bottom lines.  Rezoning equates to Value, Entitlement Reform leads to Value and Incentives lead to Value.  Value Creation is not a catchy slogan rather a fundamental philosophy and core to VDG’s overall business plan. 
VENTURES DEVELOPMENT GROUP (VDG)

Each Ventures Development community strikes the perfect balance of comfort, efficiency, exceptional amenities and location

Creating healthy walkable and engaging lifestyles so the renter can enjoy doing more of what they love.
