Building Bi-Coastal Luxury Apartment Homes

Johnson Development Associates (JDA) is a leading owner and developer of luxury apartment homes across the country.

Founded in 1996, JDA’s Multifamily Division has created over 6,500 apartment homes spanning both coasts, with a rapidly expanding footprint. Our Multifamily West Division, created in 2012, develops in the west coast’s most dynamic markets, while our Multifamily East Division concentrates its development efforts on the Atlantic seaboard. Well-capitalized and privately-held, JDA is poised to move rapidly as it pursues a streamlined and disciplined approach to site selection and development of top-of-market multifamily communities in dynamic markets. JDA continues to build and be recognized for award-winning, sustainable, stylish, and comfortable multifamily properties.

Entrepreneurial Nimbleness, Institutional Stability

JDA pairs the nimbleness of an entrepreneurial development company with the stability of institutional grade capital.

We invest solely for the Johnson family. We do not accept outside investors nor raise money for individual projects. The Johnson family is committed to maintaining liquidity in order to support a robust pipeline and understands that the firm is only as strong as its reputation for honoring its commitments.

Our ability to execute on opportunities is not hindered by a protracted investment committee process. Our development team is empowered with the authority to make decisions in real time when necessary. In business, the passage of time is a common enemy; we will not waste a prospective seller's time or ours.

JDA combines qualitative measures with disciplined financial analysis to select sites. A site is first evaluated from the perspective of a resident. We pair a dynamic location with a product with which we have proven experience, and in doing so, create a unique selling proposition.
