What We Do

Clarity, value, confidence. These three words drive what we do as your development partners.

With so many moving parts in any development project, our focus is to bring you clarity throughout the process, ensuring you receive the most value from your investment.

Around Fort Wayne, we are renowned for our land development projects. For each of these, we begin with collecting information, including surveys, topography, soil and environmental conditions, site access, title and zoning, pertinent legal rights, and association covenants and restrictions. After a full review, Sturges Development Group makes cohesive recommendations based on a fully analysis of our research. The next step is to oversee the plans and engineering, creating the most cost-effective and value-maximizing plan for the parcels. Next comes the bidding process in which we create the pro forma for a shovel-ready project that will allow for an feasible investment structure. All of this happens before the final step of taking it to market.

Throughout the entire process, Sturges Development Group provides you and your team with financial modeling and forecasting, updates for financing outfits, and work with the sales team to ensure the project exceeds your expectations and suits your business needs.

Sturges Development is also no stranger to building projects. In the early stages, we work with a design team and architects to create a viable plan based on your goals. We soon consult with maintenance, mechanical, and building engineering teams to ensure optimal design for long-term and efficient operation.

We find and apply for federal, state, and local incentives such as CReED, TIF, tax phase-ins, and other grants and incentives. At every step in this journey, we provide clear financial reporting and forecasting so you know the job is getting done exactly how you want it.
