About Us

Zelman Development Co. is a privately owned commercial real estate development company headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Founded in the early 1960’s our company originally specialized in industrial property development in and around the greater Los Angeles area. Through the years we have expanded these efforts to include suburban office, airport parking facilities, and large format “power” retail shopping centers.

Zelman Development Co. has specific expertise in developing properties requiring extensive rezoning or new entitlement. Zelman’s success in completing complex entitlements and Environmental Impact Reports is one of its strongest calling cards, helping create a reputation for working well with local businesses and city officials in designing and completing projects complimentary to the surrounding environment. Zelman Development Co.’s success is due in large measure to a very experienced group of senior executives with a broad range of expertise in development, architecture, construction management, financing, law, and entitlements.

The company has formed longstanding tenant relationships with industry leaders such as TargetBest BuyLowe’s Home ImprovementHome DepotLinen’s N Things and Kohl’s. Our success is due in large part to these relationships and our ability to attract capital from major financial institutions. This has allowed us build a solid portfolio of highly successful commercial properties that will provide us the liquidity and financial stability necessary to build on our past success.

Zelman Development Co. conducts many of its business activities under the names Zelman Retail Partners, Inc. and Zelman Industrial Partners, Inc. The Zelman Companies are located at 515 So. Figueroa Street, Suite 1230, Los Angeles, California 90071. The offices can be reached by phone at (213) 533-8100 or by fax at (213) 533-8118.
