The Alter Group Named NAIOP’s 2010 Developer of the Year

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

NAIOP honors The Alter Group as its 2010 Developer of the Year.I am pleased to announce that The Alter Group has received the great honor of being named the 2010 Developer of the Year — the industry’s most prestigious award — by NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association on behalf of our entire national team and our talented executive group, which has been in place for more than 30 years.

As a company, The Alter Group has stayed true to our core values and our traditional way of doing business:  maintaining solid underwriting standards; a conservative attitude towards investment; and really focusing on strong credit, both for our tenants and our assets.  We continue to work to assure that every asset has the right fundamentals in place, from a prime location to the right tenant mix, so that we can guarantee its stability over the long term.

Our industry is first and foremost about people and building communities that flourish.  These were the values that motivated the pioneers of our industry – my Dad, among them – to go to new places, to make deals over a cup of coffee and a handshake, and to see the potential in our communities.  We’re still a people business and I think this, more than anything, is what distinguishes The Alter Group.  I want to thank all of you who have partnered with us over the years – our clients, our service providers and the many municipalities that have helped us to flourish.  It is because of these that we have been here for 55 years.  We thank you.

Dear Friends,

Welcome to Alter NOW, our company’s brand new blog. We hope you’ll find it informative as we set out to chronicle the important trends underway in our industry. We hope to keep this free from sales and marketing language and simply use it as a way to start a dialogue with the stakeholders in our firm — our clients, our tenants, our contractors, our communities.

For those who may be unfamiliar with our firm, The Alter Group is 53 years old this year. We started as a residential developer in the south side of Chicago and have since grown to become a national developer of office, industrial, healthcare, hotel and retail facilities in 25 markets around the country — from California to Washington DC.

There are 160 people in 4 offices who keep the company running. I am grateful to all of them. Since brevity is the soul of wit, I will sign off here. I hope you enjoy Alter NOW.

Best wishes,
