Seefried Industrial Properties

The focused approach to industrial real estate

Development Services

At Seefried, we are focused on identifying, procuring, and developing class-A build-to-suit and speculative industrial developments in primary and secondary U.S. markets.

Build-to-Suit Development

The Seefried build-to-suit development team brings comprehensive experience and market knowledge to its customers. We work with clients during the entire process, interviewing and selecting the most qualified architects, engineers, consultants and contractors for each projects' unique set of opportunities and challenges. Our clients and business partners determine their desired level of involvement in the process.

Our open-book business model allows clients to have the maximum transparency of costs and schedule in each phase of development. By establishing relationships with design and construction firms and utilizing our proven outsourcing approach, we have led the completion of a broad range of successful build-to-suits, ranging from 25,000 square feet to 2 million square feet.

Our team's collective experience optimizes the development process in order to meet the most demanding schedules. Our ability to plan for potential challenges ensures that specific needs and objectives are met in the most timely and cost-effective manner, while maintaining the highest standard of quality in design and construction.

Park Development

Seefried has nearly three decades experience developing industrial parks and speculative distribution centers in markets throughout the U.S. Our park and spec development success is a blend of experience in gauging markets and submarkets for the right timing and delivering building product types to allow for on-budget leasing performance.

Since 1984, we have developed and leased millions of square feet of industrial park property across the U.S. This success is based on the knowledge that functional and well-positioned industrial properties are essential to the success of our clients' businesses.

Whether investing in a new market for the first time, expanding business operations, or upgrading to a customized value-engineered building, Seefried's speculative and multi-tenant industrial parks offer functional buildings with efficient design and construction and strategic locations that can add substantial value for our clients, business owners and investors.

Project Management

Seefried's real estate development team oversees the design, remodeling and renovation of any building, site or existing construction. Both building owners and tenants benefit from Seefried's expert construction and administration knowledge along with our ability to solve for a wide range of real estate functionality and sustainability objectives.

Committed to excellence in its project management services, Seefried offers consultation to determine the scope, timing, and budget of your project, executes a plan according to your needs, supervises the project through completion, and aggressively communicates through each phase of development.
