Our Story

Our partners - Jay, Brandon, Zane, Steve, Ellen, and Danny - were all born, raised, and currently reside in the Midwest. They take pride in their roots. Often, they would visit the coasts and discover a plethora of cool, modern residences, and they realized the Midwest lacked these housing options. They used this realization as inspiration and founded DEV Partners with the ambition to create beautiful, sustainable, and modern housing in the Midwest. DEV's background in Architecture and Real Estate pushes them toward beauty, aesthetics, creativity, form, and function.

Our leadership also provides coordination between DEV Partners and our strategic partner, SHYFT, to provide support design, project management, and construction services.
