About The Kolter Group

The Kolter Group is a diversified real estate development and investment firm that has invested in projects with expected value in excess of $15 Billion. Headquartered in Palm Beach County, Florida, the company is among the most experienced real estate investors in the Southeast, having executed investments across major asset classes and all stages of the development cycle. Our portfolio of complementary businesses drives an entrepreneurial culture and allows us to adapt to change and choose investments on a selective basis.

HISTORY

In 1993, Kolter CEO, Bobby Julien joined Canada Square, a Toronto based commercial office developer. Soon after, they purchased their first residential development from the RTC,Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton, Florida. Woodfield was partially developed at the time it was acquired, and Canada Square went on to complete the 1250 home project as a hugely successful, first of its kind, family-oriented country club community.

In 1997, Bobby partnered with the shareholders of  Canada Square to form Kolter Property Company, expanding the development projects to include condominiums, residential home communities, office developments and multifamily apartments in both Canada and the United States.

In 2005, Bobby established the basis for what would become The Kolter Group in order to expand and diversify his investor base. This started out with two verticals, Kolter Homes which develops communities, and Kolter Urban which focuses on condominiums.

In 2007, Kolter formed a land development division, Kolter Land, which entitles land and then develops lots for national and large regional home builders.

In 2008, Kolter expanded into the hospitality space and established Kolter Hospitality which focuses on developing and managing hotels.

Today, Kolter Group is a diversified real estate investment company, with over 850 team members across its affiliated business units in the southeastern US, and has created award-winning communities, luxury high-rise condominiums and branded hotels.

THE KOLTER GROUP TEAM

The Kolter Group has a team of proven professionals with institutional credibility and aligned goals to carry out the firm’s mission. The leadership team and portfolio company presidents possess nearly 200 years of cumulative real estate experience.
