"When FedEx had to add over 20 new sort facilities throughout the U.S. in less than 4 years, we turned to MDG [with RDP Development, Inc. as its Managing Principal] as one of only two Master Developers for the subject land acquisition and development projects. When the other developer lost its capital source MDG/RDP stepped in as the sole Master Developer. RDP had excellent resources and innovative site selection/qualifying programs to quickly hone in on the sites that produced the greatest value for our operations. RDP also handled the entitlement processes in some of the most challenging jurisdictions in the country, such as New York City and San Francisco. All planned facilities were built on budget and on schedule. We were very pleased with the value and integrity RDP brought to the table."
John George, Director of Corporate Real Estate
"I have partnered millions of square feet of projects worth hundreds of millions of dollars with RDP over the last 15+ years. This is a high-risk business with a lot of money at stake. I will continue to do more business with RDP because Russell Pierce and his team have proven themselves to be extremely competent through all phases of development, from opportunity underwriting, complex design and entitlements through construction. Most importantly, RDP executes with exceptional professionalism and integrity! That’s the bottom line for me."
Don W. Oliphant, President
"Operating as a public REIT, we contract with a select group of qualified Development Managers to help us execute on building our portfolio of build-to-core, class-A logistics facilities throughout the U.S. With vast resources, knowledge and integrity, RDP is one of the best we have worked with. Their ability to identify the many complex critical path objectives and execute solutions to achieve the end-result of value and time-to-market is exceptional. RDP is highly responsive and complicit with all our accounting, reporting and regulatory requirements, with a hands-on entrepreneurial attitude. Russell Pierce and his team are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to many more successful projects together."
Peter Vanderburg, Senior Vice President of Development
