The Cordish Company is the largest and most successful national developer of commercial real estate projects done in partnership with public sector entities, including city, state and tribal governments and not-for-profits such as universities and hospitals.
The majority of these partnerships involve high-profile locations that are of unique significance to the cities and regions in which they are located. Examples include the company's prominent role in the redevelopment of Baltimore's world famous Inner Harbor. In addition to Baltimore, public sector and non-profit partners include dozens of entities, such as the Cities of Houston, TX, Charleston, SC; Salt Lake City, UT; and the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.
The success of the Company's many projects have served to revitalize numerous distressed urban areas, yielding hundreds of millions of dollars of direct economic benefits to the public sector. In addition, the "spin-off" benefits to cities and non-profits resulting from these projects have been well documented to significantly exceed the direct benefits.
Based on its expertise and track-record of working on high-profile public private projects, the Cordish Company was awarded in recent years and has completed major public-private, retail/entertainment districts in Atlantic City, NJ; Landover, MD; Hampton, VA; Louisville, KY and Kansas City, MO. In addition, in partnership with their respective city governments, the Cordish Company has recently undertaken major expansions of Bayou Place in the Theater District of Houston, TX, and of 4th Street Live! in downtown Louisville, KY.
