A build-to-suit is a building specifically constructed to meet the design, location and physical specifications of one major user. There are different alternatives in which to originate and transact a build-to-suit opportunity.

General Development Company, LLC (GDC) is equipped to successfully implement any of the build-to-suit options for the end user. We can build on land the company already owns, acquire land for a specific project or offer land GDC owns in their portfolio.

Or even a hybrid between the above choices, including shared equity and joint venture arrangements.
GDC has been in business since 1983, completing over Five (5) million square feet of transactions. General Development Company, LLC, is a full service developer, in that we develop our sites and handle all construction services internally.
