Clark Property R+D is a real estate firm that sources, plans, and manages value-add investments and community development initiatives. We structure and advise on creative investment opportunities and joint venture partnerships that bring thoughtful projects to fruition in the built environment. 


We take an interdisciplinary approach incorporating the best practices of urban design, sustainable building, and community development to help achieve livable urban communities, one project at a time. While we strive to incorporate the ideals of sustainable urbanism, we also remain pragmatic by responding to the unique challenges of each individual project and local market in order to achieve economic success.
