The Harbach Lofts project would simply not have happened without the assistance of Christensen Development. Their expertise in tax credit financing was invaluable and their willingness to share advice from their own development experience made for an incredibly successful partnership.
When we took on the task of building a new corporate headquarters, I thought that I would handle the day-to-day while still performing my normal duties. It became apparent that it was going to be too much for me, and a colleague recommended Angie and Christensen Development. I was a bit apprehensive to hire anyone, but in hindsight, I don’t even know how we would have done it without them. I am so glad that we made the decision to move forward with Christensen as a partner. It was worth every penny.
Christensen Development’s coordination skills are impressive. It is hard to express what all goes into a project like this unless you have been involved in them. Departments have different needs and wants. Architects and Builders have limitations in both budget and workability. Coordinating it all was Angie. Professional, knowledgeable, great judgement, decisive decision making, collaborative and tireless worker are all traits that Christensen Development displayed in this project.
AEG had determined to do a full renovation of our historic property in downtown Des Moines. A project like this needed a team that really understood historic preservation, the various programs that support projects like this and the political savvy to navigate all of the various agencies. We were delighted to hire the team from Christensen Development to assist us with this process. They were easy to work with, always made sure we understood what was needed and guided us through a very successful redevelopment.
Christensen Development was honest, dependable, and easy to work with. Our project was a big undertaking for our company — expanding and moving our headquarters — with some very tight deadlines, so we needed a developer that could stick to a schedule and deliver, which Christensen did. We will work them again!
It has been a pleasure working with Christensen Development. The knowledge and experience they have demonstrated has been extremely helpful in the development of our new business. They have been consistent and quick to respond to our needs as a lessee.
Christensen Development ended up being one of the best parts of the project. From the very beginning it was apparent that we had made a very good decision hiring them. It is amazing how many important and time sensitive decisions need to be made on a project like this. Jake and Angie guided us through them all. They kept staff and the elected officials informed, moving forward and on the same page. The project would have been much more difficult to keep on schedule without their communication and knowledge.
