"The conservation of energy and natural resources, along with the ongoing need to develop and innovate environmentally-friendly buildings have become a priority in attracting new tenants," explained Edward St. John, Founder and Chairman of St. John Properties. "We have become the gold standard in formulating and executing a feasible and sustainable plan for green architecture and will continue evolving in the future."

St. John Properties was one of the first organizations to establish a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program in 2009. The company has now constructed 87 buildings comprising more than five million square feet of LEED certified space and has a goal of reaching 100 LEED-certified commercial buildings, totaling six million square feet of space by 2023.

Another sustainability goal is to roll out a scalable and economic solar approach on top of all building types and to deliver buildings that naturally produce more energy than they use, in order to create a net positive. Read detailed LEED strategy here.

St. John Properties will continue their long-term plan to establish independent satellite offices in emerging and economically-diverse markets across the country. The company’s innovative four-year Partner-in-Training program provides candidates with rigorous training and education in every discipline of the commercial real estate process including development, construction and sustainability, marketing, leasing, tenant improvements and property management.

The company expanded to Colorado and Wisconsin in 1987, opened a regional office in Frederick, Maryland to service Central Maryland and Northern Virginia in 1996, and entered the Louisiana marketplace in 2000. In 2012 the company purchased the one million square foot Harrisburg Mall in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and launched its gaming division with Boomtown Casino is Reno, Nevada. In 2014, St. John Properties opened its most recent regional office in Utah. Read full growth plan here.

In 2018, NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, selected St. John Properties, as its Developer of the Year – the association’s highest national honor.
