Back in 1976, Roy A. Jordan, Jr. first entered the Western New York real estate field by purchasing and managing multi-family homes. A few years later, he ventured into rehabilitating commercial real estate, and soon began developing and constructing retail plazas in the Buffalo, NY suburbs of Cheektowaga, Tonawanda and Amherst.
In 1982, Roy founded North Forest Development with his wife, Patricia, and in 1987 they became involved in commercial office construction, mainly focusing on office condominium parks. Over the years, North Forest Development evolved into a full-service commercial development company - locating land, designing sites, and obtaining necessary approvals. By purchasing their own materials, constructing the buildings, leasing the space and managing the properties, they have been able to monitor their costs and quality closely, and offer upscale office space at an affordable price.
In response to growing demand, North Forest Development shifted its core business from condominium office parks to lease-only office parks in 2000. This proved to be a successful strategy, and North Forest has since ventured into Rochester, NY (2004), Denver, Colorado (2008), Austin, Texas (2011) and Dallas, Texas (2015).
Today, we are known as North Forest Office Space - an identity that perfectly captures our mission to provide innovative and affordable office space for small businesses, medical offices and dental practices throughout the country.
