In 1978, Five Star Development established business in the El Paso/Ciudad Juarez border region when it was realized that this region lacked adequate commercial/industrial, build-to-suit, and development resources.
  • Over 15 million square feet of commercial projects with a value of more than $1.18 billion have been designed, developed and constructed to date.
  • Over the years the Five Star Development portfolio has grown to over 7.06 million square feet of commercial facilities under its active ownership and management.
  • Success is attributable to offering tenants the professionalism, resources and networking that are available from large national firms, but with the same quick decision-making process, flexibility and “low” overhead that a small, entrepreneurial business has to offer.
  • Regarded as “The Blue-Chip Choice” for commercial and industrial development and construction along the border and the southwest.
  • Currently maintains relationships with many nationwide lenders and insurance institutions because of its solid financial base and exceptional financial resources
  • The Five Star Signature Fast Track was developed and designed to place the needs and expectations of the customer first, resulting in attractive occupancy costs.
