The Mainland Companies, LLC is a real estate development firm with offices in Nashville, Tennessee and Portland, Oregon.

Mainland's principals have developed or managed more than $2.9 billion in assets, equity and loans, and have overseen more than 35 million square feet of commercial and multifamily space. The company engages primarily in mixed-use urban infill projects, retail & medical, and net lease development projects.

Mainland was formed to create high quality assets, create sustainable development platforms and to provide comprehensive development services to clients and investors with both large and small programmatic visions. The firm’s principals examine each opportunity on its own merit, and provide rigorous, analytic oversight in terms of deal structuring, financial analysis, development planning, implementation and asset management.

Mainland is lean by design. From our initial consultation to the finished product, our senior level executives work in close coordination and collaboration with clients throughout each project to ensure that both the big picture and crucial details are balanced.

We believe in full transparency, and we stick with what we know best. We achieve stability by diversifying our portfolio across product types; not by practicing multiple real estate disciplines. We do not provide brokerage, construction or property management services, so our partners and investors know that our interests are properly aligned.

Mainland is best utilized when engaged early in the project. Through detailed analysis, first-hand experience, and seasoned intuition, Mainland plays an active role in acquisition, disposition, design and development, leasing and marketing, financing and capitalization, and asset management. Being involved before each project begins gives Mainland an opportunity to identify efficiencies from both the fiscal and development perspective.
