Dwight Saathoff formed Project Finance & Development in 2006 with the intent of conceiving and building creative new projects in Central Florida. Dwight was confident that with the right team and a little foresight and patience, PFD could create inspiring and compelling communities that would help change the trajectory of more typical, generally unimaginative development concepts regularly seen throughout the area. The team at PFD is constantly testing and measuring their ideas against the company’s mission of only doing projects where the team would themselves like to live or shop. At PFD, we don’t take on new projects just to stay busy. We will only get involved in a new project when we believe that our vision for the site will lead to a development that, when finished, will have a strong, positive ripple effect on the surrounding area. This approach helps to create value not only for us but also for our Central Florida neighbors.
PFD has planned, entitled and developed numerous projects ranging from master-planned, residential communities to commercial/residential mixed-use. PFD also owns over 20 retail centers and NNN assets throughout the country.
