Providing Much-Needed Market-Rate Properties to Western Michigan

There’s a huge shortage of housing in Western Michigan. Compass Property Development provides intelligent, sustainable, and responsible housing solutions that preserve local community character and deliver portfolio growth.

Compass Creates Communities

We do more than build houses. At Compass, we create communities. Because our roots are firmly planted in the Michigan community. We live here. We work here. We are part of the very communities we build.
