Founded in 1975 for the sole purpose of designing, developing, constructing and managing multi-family housing.
The Davis Companies have been in the development and construction business for over 35 years. It originated in 1975 with the founding of Davis & Sons Construction Company. Davis and Sons was established to develop and construct multi-family housing. In the mid 1990's Davis Companies began specializing in student housing. The first student housing development was completed in 1996 at the University of Florida.
In 1998, the first six communities were acquired by a national student housing firm who subsequently sold three developments to the University of Central Florida in Orlando. In 2004, four more communities were acquired by the same student housing purchaser. Three other student housing developments were re-financed in 2002 with a long term conduit lender. These notable acquisitions and refinances are indicative of the success of the Davis Companies student housing communities.
Our ability to identify, evaluate, and secure superior properties for student housing development is a crucial part of success. Our previous experience includes the funding, development, construction, management and sale of over $310 million in student housing properties over the past 15 years. To date, Davis Companies have developed and/or constructed 19 student housing communities throughout the Southeast consisting of 3,669 units and 11,977 beds. The ability to draw from our own experience and from our network of experts creates a system designed to meet the ever changing demands of student housing.
"The key to success of the Davis Companies is their hands-on approach to all phases of a project. They are intimately familiar with each step in the process and maintain a high level of integrity as they proceed with every development." Don Hooper, Executive Vice President
