Granger Development is a real estate development firm dedicated to the fundamental principle of building value. We are visionaries; we imagine developments that will not only benefit the company, but also our clients, tenants and the community. We believe that value is created by realizing potential that others may not see.

Whether it is a commercial building, industrial park, hotel, office building, retail center, multi-family use, or other commercial potential, we seek to achieve the highest value by creating thoughtful, efficient, effective developments and redevelopments by looking into the future and projecting what businesses and consumers of tomorrow will need.

Among other successful projects, Granger Development was the lead developer for The Tennyson condominiums in Downtown Tallahassee. This fourteen-story, ninety-unit condominium project is located just block away from the State Capitol of Florida and was Tallahassee’s very first Downtown residential high-rise Condominium. The success of this project helped the Tennyson win the City of Tallahassee’s prestigious “Visionary Award”.
