We will approach every deal with an appropriate margin of safety and never stretching for a deal or becoming greedy.
Every individual shall take ownership, be accountable, and take responsibility while avoiding blame, excuses, and denial. We will always strive to admit, learn, and grow from failure and mistakes.
As we conduct our business, we will operate with the highest integrity and we shall strive to live by the Golden Rule.
NorthPoint Development is a privately held development firm based in Kansas City. Our focus is on Class A development in the industrial and self-storage markets within the central part of the United States. We are currently active in 21 states including Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Illinois, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Arizona, Washington, New York, Georgia, and Florida.
Our firm is one of the most active industrial development firms in the country having developed over 67,300,000 square feet of Class A industrial product since our inception in 2012. Last year alone, we leased over 13,200,000 square feet of Class A warehouse space around the USA. NorthPoint differentiates ourselves from our competition through a strong engineering and technical focus. We employ numerous civil, geotech, electrical and industrial process engineers as well as team members with deep expertise in logistics, labor, and incentives. We also have in-house industrial architects who provide NorthPoint with a further source of competitive advantage. Our team’s broad experience enables us to create long term value to our clients through smart real estate decisions.
Our largest customer is General Motors whom we have helped develop numerous supplier parks to support their manufacturing operations. These supplier parks demonstrate NorthPoint’s deep technical and logistics expertise helping General Motors substantial reduce operating expenses.
Other customers include Amazon, Wal-Mart, Grainger, United Parcel Service, New Balance Shoes, Saks Fifth Ave, Post Cereal, Kubota Tractor, General Electric and many other national and regional firms.
Our firm is guided by the principal that taking care of our customers is our number one priority. Our motto: “Beyond The Contract” embodies the concept that no contract can ever be written to reflect everything that will occur in a complex real estate transaction. Our approach in all of our business relationships is to be fair and to operate by the “Golden Rule.”
In order to be successful for our customers, our firm will remain financially disciplined with all of our endevours. We will continue to align our interests with the interests of our investors, we don’t make any money until our investors make money. We will never use any debt to acquire land, we will not levereage our projects with excessive debt and we will always be careful not to ‘chase cap rates’ instead focusing on creating long term value. Our approach is simple and we intend to keep it that way.
We will help support our employees’ charitable endeavors by matching 100% of the charitable donations that all of our employees make. This allows the charity of our organization to reflect the values of each of our employees. We will make the goal of helping people who are less fortunate to be a part of the fabric of our company; it will be an active goal of our company to seek out and help others. We want to look back over our careers and be proud of the good that we have done.
Just a few of the many charities we support
