Joseph Freed and Associates LLC is the largest privately owned real estate development company in the Midwest, with a national reputation for versatility and innovation. Although our properties are currently located in Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, our interests and capabilities are nationwide.
Since our founding in 1965, with a single retail property, we have evolved into a full-service real estate business engaged in retail, residential, office, hospitality, mixed-use development, redevelopment, transit-oriented development, vintage and historic restoration, urban infill, and the development initiatives of many municipalities across America.
Our real estate roster includes the acquisition, development and redevelopment of 24 million square feet of retail, residential and office space. Currently, we have more than 13 million square feet of space in operation or in development in over 40 projects. While commercial properties form the bulk of our current portfolio, we have carved out a niche in the exciting and challenging mixed-use marketplace as a master planner of high-density urban projects exceeding $3 billion.
We're honored by our distinctive reputation, earned for envisioning and pioneering innovative methods in planning, design, construction, and leasing. Throughout our four decades, JFA has sustained a high degree of credibility in a fiercely competitive marketplace by our diligent commitment to:
building trust, long term relationships and the respect of our peers
our pioneering work in the de-malling and remerchandising of existing properties
our consistency in adding value and vitality to our portfolio from ground up developments and
aggressive support and enhancement programs to help tenants increase their customer base
With Joseph Freed's son Larry, now at the helm, we are into our second generation of Freed leadership at JFA. Our proud family-owned heritage and our tradition of long-term commitment to our projects, is evidenced by our many developments still owned, managed or leased today. Our mission remains to maximize the earning potential and quality of our projects; and to provide enduring benefits to our partners, tenants, residents, and neighborhoods as we sustain or enhance the environment. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
