About Us

Our Story

Since acquiring its first property in 2010, Evolution CRE continues to focus on redeveloping distressed and underutilized properties. From market research and site selection, to permitting and entitlements, through construction and delivery; our reliable team handles the process every step of the way.

There is a seismic shift going on in shopping center real estate. Existing retailers are trying to figure out how to adapt while new concepts are being launched every day, all in an attempt to figure out the best way to provide goods and services in today’s multi-channel environment. Connecting with customers is no longer a want, but a need. At Evolution CRE, we understand that “brick & mortar” is as important as ever, but it needs to be fully integrated to meet the demands of today’s consumer. And with health and wellness at the forefront, we are focused on merchandising our properties accordingly.

With over 70 years of combined experience, our development expertise is matched by an unwavering commitment to dependability and customer satisfaction. Our consistent ability to deliver high quality, on-time and on-budget store openings has made Evolution CRE a valuable partner for national chains such as Planet Fitness and Dollar Tree.

Whether you are looking for a single location or contemplating multi-market expansion, Evolution CRE can be a trusted partner.
