Beyond great buildings


It's one thing to bring a community to life. It's an entirely different thing to bring life to an existing community. That's what we do at Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation: inject life into the communities we serve with new and revitalized spaces that add value for everyone.  Since 1981, we've successfully developed and redeveloped hundreds of commercial and residential properties, coordinating the interests of all stakeholders, including surrounding neighborhoods, municipalities, regulatory agencies, tenants and investors. Our success has been the direct result of our cutting-edge development practices, our keen attention to detail and our commitment to maintaining strong client relationships.
