Jaindl Properties was founded in 2011 when Mark and Zachary Jaindl formed a business plan around the promotion of smart growth through the conservation and reuse of many of the Lehigh Valley’s historic sites while preventing urban sprawl through responsible development practices. The father-and-son team had always had an appreciation for architecture, and when one of the key locations along Allentown’s former “Millionaire’s Row” became available, they were quick to move.
The Shimer Building was one of their earlier renovation jobs: the project allowed them to self-critique and enhance their process, eventually streamlining how they renovated properties while their decades of real estate experience allowed them to determine the proper reuse through thorough market analysis. It became evident that the properties that began as a hobby worked in conjunction with the market’s demand for historically unique space. Jaindl Properties quickly grew, acquiring a series of old mansions and properties throughout the West Park District in Allentown, and then worked their investment strategy through center city and ultimately the upcoming Riverside District.
