The Mainland Companies is a well-respected mover and shaker development company in Nashville, Tennessee. When they wanted to broaden their project targets into Portland with two experienced local developers, Todd and Cascade Commercial jumped in to guide them to multiple development opportunities.
With development in Portland at an all-time peak, and millions of dollars flowing into projects throughout Portland, competition for good sites is brutal – especially in certain areas like the Pearl District, Central Eastside, and the downtown core, which is where every developer wants to be.
Todd was able to help Mainland understand up-and-coming markets and neighborhoods that are much less competitive, and have more sites, and most importantly have much more economical land costs, but still with great upside. This has led Mainland to three separate projects in the St John’s neighborhood, which is showing real signs of becoming a great mixed-use desirable neighborhood.
With Todd’s knowledge and expertise, Mainland has closed on two transactions for over $10 million for mixed-use project sites, which when completed will entail over $100 million in investment, and potentially 1000 units of housing.
