Our Mission

Next Cities acquires, develops and manages creative office properties in Detroit and other cities that are attracting entrepreneurial businesses. By creating work environments that foster innovation and collaboration, Next Cities strives to facilitate the success of our tenants and bring new vitality to the neighborhoods in which we invest.

Next Cities was founded to participate in two long term trends that are radically reshaping the environments where we live and work: the revitalization of older industrial cities, and the growth in entrepreneurship. We pride ourselves on a very hands on approach to our investments. From selecting the neighborhoods where we invest, to building a great work environment for our tenants, we are deeply involved at every step. We build a team of strong local partners to seamlessly integrate the construction, leasing, and management of our properties. We also work with local organizations to build strong, connected neighborhoods. While a great strategy is important, it means nothing without great execution.
