Harbor Development

Harbor Development, an affiliate of Harbor Management, buys, develops and manages apartment communities and retail shopping centers in eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and in Maine within markets along the Maine Turnpike corridor. We also specialize in rehab projects and conversions to residential housing using tax credits.

Recommendations and strategies for these assets include financing solutions, recommendations for additional asset-value creation, exit strategies, and establishing investment partnerships. In addition to preserving and increasing the quality and value within our existing portfolio, Harbor Development consistently identifies and pursues new real estate investment opportunities.

Harbor Development also provides in-house professional services to our affiliated management company, and its diverse portfolio of residential apartment communities, shopping centers and other commercial properties. The long term history of the company and strong portfolio of residential communities and commercial properties is a testament to the experience and integrity of ownership and its employees.
