Steaven Jones Development Company, Inc. (“SJDC”) is a fully-integrated commercial real estate development company that has been in business since 1965 (celebrated its 50th anniversary last year). It is a development/property management company that oversees 18 properties that are owned by SJDC’s affiliated entities. SJDC has developed over 100 commercial properties in Southern California, many from the ground up.
Lawry Meister joined the firm in 1990 to help SJDC renovate two office buildings owned by two partnerships affiliated with SJDC in downtown Santa Monica. Steaven Jones and Lawry Meister decided to take advantage of the inherent architectural features of both buildings, including high, beamed ceilings, operable windows, exposed brick walls and abundant natural light. This “creative office space” was quickly leased, and started them in a new direction, renovating older buildings or constructing ground-up creative office projects throughout Los Angeles County.
SJDC continues to manage most of the properties developed by Steaven Jones and Lawry Meister, providing high and consistent returns to its investors. SJDC maintains excellent tenant relations and close attention to cost control, which contributes to the company’s success in retaining tenants and developing and managing successful projects.
