GIP owns, develops, finances, manages, leases and offers consulting services on mixed-use, hotel, and commercial real estate and works with municipalities to provide projects that will not only be economically successful and enhance the vibrancy of a community, but also create new tax revenues. GIP has also worked closely with non-profit organizations to help realize their goals including the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in downtown Grand Rapids. The $10 million, 40,000 square development includes a black box theatre for drama and dance, a film theatre, a ceramics studio complete with kilns, and a variety of galleries and art studios. The project also includes 56 luxury apartment units with retail and a 250 car parking garage. From its beginning, GIP assembled a team of experienced and accomplished partners and associates that offer a varied but complimentary real estate background. GIP has achieved considerable recognition since its inception through its lead and participation in several notable real estate developments and leasing opportunities in the Chicago area as well as other prominent communities in the Midwest and Florida. GIP has successfully undertaken a wide variety of ventures – from multi-million dollar single family villas on the water just outside of Naples, Florida to a $100 million dollar mixed-use hotel development to Class A office buildings. GIP has been recognized for its ability to provide quality and aesthetic solutions to new mixed-use developments within historic communities through their award of projects on Oak Park’s main commercial corridor and Elgin’s Historic Downtown District. GIP continuously strives to be a leader in the real estate marketplace and to exceed client and community expectations through developing premier places to live, work and play.
