About Commonwealth Properties, LLC

A leader in the communities we serve.

Our Mission

About Commonwealth Properties

For over 25 years Commonwealth Properties has been developing and acquiring multifamily properties throughout the Southeast. From acquisition, design and construction, to long-term asset management, we pride ourselves on delivering our residents and our investors the very best in quality.

In contrast to other developers who may have ten projects running at a time, we prefer to concentrate on only a select few developments each year. It’s a unique perspective that enables us to take a more hands-on role when it comes to delivering on our design and investment plan.

Commonwealth Properties is devoted to being a responsible steward of the land that we own and develop. We have found that an open and honest dialogue serves to illuminate development options that are embraced by all stakeholders in our projects. These conversations produce developments that complement the existing environment and communities in which we operate.

As long-term owners and operators, we are committed to the highest standards of design, construction and ownership to achieve the shared goal of creating high-quality communities built for the long-run.
