our philosophy

we care about our residents

Westland finds unique commercial real estate opportunities and transforms them to their full potential. We design for better living, with details that elevate communities -- from the basics like repairs and landscaping, to the unexpected, like communal art and dog parks.

we care about our investors

We’ve found that when we design for better living, we also deliver compelling investor returns along the way. Over the last 40 years, we have delivered on average a 23% ROI for our investors.  

we care about our planet

Adaptive re-use of older properties is not only good for communities, but also good for the planet. We embrace existing buildings in the suburbs and look for efficient and earth friendly ways to revitalize their character. It is far more environmentally friendly to work with what we have rather than scrap buildings entirely.

dedicated to better living


With more than 40 years of experience, we've built a mastery of both the art and the science of real estate development. Our secret sauce is in the careful operation of our properties, while increasing margins and value along the way.


We have vision and passion for finding opportunities with potential and developing them into communities that inspire. We pride ourselves in finding properties with great bones and then creatively recycling, upcycling and sustaining these buildings for our residents.


Our model enables flexibility to go where the opportunity exists. We’re driven to find opportunities that will deliver optimal return on investment. For decades, being nimble has lead our team to find the most interesting opportunities.


Our vertically integrated team has a rigorous approach to project management that ensures development projects stay on time and on budget. This commitment and follow-through is core to our success.
