About cary mike


We are a Real Estate development company that combines a unique design aesthetic with quality and community building.

We met in 2008 and quickly bonded over a common love of design, food, creating interesting spaces and developing strong personal relationships. We both wanted to do something that felt creative, meaningful and impactful.

When we started, we didn't have Real Estate or design backgrounds, but we cared deeply about creating compelling spaces, giving consideration to and gaining inspiration from the architecture, history and aesthetic of the neighborhoods we were investing in. We figured we could make the rest up as we went along.

We partner with people whose talent we believe in and support them to fulfill their vision. If the tenant is successful the building will be successful.
