Landmark developments for growing communities.

Drake development projects provide opportunity for our partners and investors to convert properties into high-yielding real estate developments. Each Drake project is approached as a long-term investment through all planning phases and constructed with focus on longevity and sustainability.

We believe that economic growth and preserving a town’s charm shouldn’t compete within the community. We make this happen by respecting a town’s history and valuing the needs of the people who live there with every project.
