A residential development is a long-term investment for any community. For Echo Development Group, this requires taking a step back and thinking big picture. Rather than stick with development patterns of the past, Echo is redesigning the layouts of the past to fit the higher standards and expectations of today’s residents and communities.
When your community needs a new subdivision, a shovel-ready development planned by an expert team is the way to go. With expertise developing, designing and constructing diverse mixed-use and single-use developments, Echo is a trusted partner for your residential development needs.
Echo Development Group specializes in developing multifamily projects. Creating denser living opportunities is becoming more and more valuable as our cities and communities continue to urbanize. Our team innovates from the earliest stages to create a site plan that makes the most sense in terms of profitability and livability while still pulling from the culture and vibrance of each unique community and neighborhood. From there we develop floor plans that focus on open concept, sustainable living, and elevations that find the correct balance between fitting in with the neighborhood while allowing it to thrive and grow. We also offer full-service interior design services to coordinate a seamless look both inside and out.
The Echo Multi-Family portfolio is expansive and unique. Our projects range from new developments to redevelopment/infill and historic building revitalization. Each of our projects is completely unique from the next and relies on our team of experts to overcome the hurdles of creating functional spaces in often challenging spaces that maximize both use and aesthetics.
Communities grow with an echo. For us it’s more about creating a shared and meaningful experience than just building a space. We design mixed-use areas that bring communities together, injecting a mix of culture, retail, and sustainability to enrich people’s desires and improve communities.
Our team collaborates directly with communities and their leaders to analyze population demographics, civic values, and preferences. We then take this knowledge to create innovative developments at the cutting edge that address physical, economic and environmental factors, while building joy, culture and well-being.
Echo is experienced in designing unique environments that encourage recreation, health, and wellness. With our partnership approach, we consider a community’s landscape to work together and design innovative facilities that bring the community together, while enhancing the user, athlete and participant experience. The sports and recreational facilities we build are visually pleasing, functional, and serve the purpose of introducing long-term economic and social benefits to the community.
Echo Development Group has the capability to develop all hotel segments — including full-service, independent, select-service and extended-stay hotels — in order to create profitable ventures for our landscape of investors. With a proven track record of hotel development throughout Iowa, Echo Development Group is constantly on the edge of innovation, looking for opportunities to grow our portfolio of hotels.
Our portfolio of projects also includes hotel conversions, including the Cedar Valley’s first micro-apartment complex, 228 Spaces.
Repurposing distressed, vacant, underutilized land breathes new life into cities and communities. Redeveloped sites create a stepping stone for economic development and grant communities the power to grow sustainably. Our expertise lies in helping transform these sites to make revitalization possible.
Our collaborative approach relies on a partnership with the community to identify solutions to any challenges that may arise during the planning process. To aid in this process, our team includes not only planners, architects and engineers, but also industry experts in economic development, financial incentives, remediation and restoration. As a team, we work with both public and private clients to design and deliver projects that revitalize communities and help to bring benefits to all parties involved.
At Echo we understand historic methods, materials, and care about the integrity of historic structures because our team of experts has been managing historic preservation projects for years. Our portfolio includes multiple historic buildings – including churches, temples, and landmarks – that have been preserved with special attention to any and all restrictions required by the community and converted into functional, usable spaces.
We believe in the importance of preserving historical buildings and landmarks, and it’s because of that belief that we take great care in our preservation projects. A community or generation can be defined by a community building or landmark, and we don’t take that lightly. All of our historic preservation projects begin with a careful and stringent planning phase to understand the communities vision for the historical building.
With health and wellness becoming one of the largest market sector demands, Echo Development Group is ready to meet this demand head on. Our team of experts understands that every health and wellness development should be as unique as the company providing the service. That’s why it is our top focus to understand our clients’ missions and values, then design an environment that values the patient, family, and staff experience.
It is our goal to turn your ideas into meaningful building concepts that support your commitment to providing world-class health and wellness services.
As the largest generation in history prepares to enter the workforce, we are seeing profound changes in how and where we work. Echo’s focus is the design of collaborative and forward-thinking spaces that help to foster creativity within your team. Our architects and designers partner with both employers and developers to design buildings and spaces that accomplish those goals.
Meeting the production demands of today while still keeping pace with ever-changing compliance requirements demands forward thinking and a unique approach, one that promotes pioneering solutions and applies the latest technology.
That’s why our diverse teams of architects, engineers, scientists and planners provide industrial and warehouse design services that cover the entire project life cycle to help our clients reduce costs and maintain their competitive advantage by improving day-to-day operations.
