PDG came about due to the association of two commercial real estate brokers and a commercial contractor, both based in south metro Atlanta, Georgia. During the depths of the recession, Quantum Commercial Real Estate sought to right-size and reduce expenses by sharing office space with South-Tree Enterprises, LLC, a commercial general contracting firm. The close proximity of the team members provided ample opportunity for deeper discussion of potential projects being sought by both the brokers and the contractor. All parties became more comfortable with each other and agreed to form an alliance. As a result, Parkside Management Group, LLC was formed in March of 2010 and then Parkside Development Group, LLC in January of 2011.
PDGs Organizational Structure. PDG is part of a group of companies focused on real estate (Quantum Commercial Real Estate), construction (South-Tree Enterprises, LLC) and property management (Parkside Management Group, LLC). Together, we bring a formidable team member to the process of commercial real estate development.
The group consists of three individuals, Chuck Ogletree (President of South-Tree Enterprises, LLC), Paul Schwinne and David A. Strickland (Partners in Quantum Commercial Real Estate). While each individual brings certain skill sets and experience, we have found that the overall synergy within the group allows for a range of ideas, unique solutions and more thorough analysis. PDG seeks to create opportunities to add value for its partners, investors and individual entities through the development, construction, leasing and management of successful commercial real estate projects.
While Parkside Development Group, LLC works on a range of project types (Office, Retail, Industrial) our main focus is on Medical Office Buildings (MOB's). We, along with our equity investment partners, feel that the healthcare sector in particular offers stability and sustainability for the foreseeable future.
