The company and its principals have developed or redeveloped over 3,000,000 square feet of buildings, and currently hold approximately 2,000,000 square feet of retail, office, hotel and residential properties.

Metrovation has transformed previously underutilized areas into thriving communities infused with economic vitality. From Downtown Red Bank and The Grove at Shrewsbury in Central New Jersey, to the Ironworks District in Oakland, California and Crossroads in Bellevue, Washington, our properties have revitalized their neighborhoods, communities and regions.

Metrovation combines a market-driven approach with intense hands-on management and leasing. We build success by developing the right mix of tenants to achieve long-term stability, value and adaptability to market conditions. We do this in every project we undertake, whether itís a retail, office or mixed use development.

Our Goal
Our driving force is to make places vital.

Slightly unorthodox, always original, Metrovation has created compelling, energetic properties that stimulate growth while remaining true to the character of the communities in which they are located.
