Briarcliff Development Company was formed by Charles Garney in 1994 for the purpose of acquiring, developing, leasing, and managing real estate operations for the Briarcliff master plan, a 400-acre infill site located just north of Downtown Kansas City, Missouri, overlooking the Missouri River. Over the past two-plus decades, BDC has developed over 310 single family residences, 700 apartment units, and 630,000 square feet of commercial space, and has partnered in hospitality projects totaling more than 475 rooms.
Today, as we near the completion of Mr. Garney’s initial vision, BDC is expanding its boundaries. While we continue to own and manage the commercial portfolio and work towards the full buildout of the Briarcliff master plan, we look to apply our expertise towards other communities and for other owners.
In setting out for new opportunities, we are led by our core beliefs and a strong business brand. Service is our number one goal, excellence is our standard, we believe integrity is the shortest path to success, and our intentions are win-win in all relationships. These values shape how we view real estate development as community development and keep us focused on creating successful, quality projects.
