Enhancing real estate to be “greater than the sum of the parts”

Real estate development, acquisition and ownership involves a myriad of skills and resources that must be seamlessly coordinated and implemented. Through a strategic assemblage of experienced professionals, The Atlantic Companies provides acquisition, development, leasing/marketing, and management services within one organization; providing a final result more valuable than any individual service would have provided on its own.
