About New England Development

Preferred locations. Compelling opportunities.
For over forty years, New England Development has taken a creative, entrepreneurial approach to real estate development and management—delivering and sustaining successful projects across a wide range of property types.

These projects transform complex challenges into preferred locations, generate long-term value to communities, afford compelling opportunities for local and national businesses, and offer sought-after experiences to a wide range of consumers.

The company is acclaimed for creating some of the country's most widely-recognized and successful regional centers, as well as multifaceted developments that combine retail, residential, hotel, and office uses. Outlet centers, high-end and street-front retail, airport retail, hotels, golf courses, restaurants, and marinas round out New England Development's robust portfolio.

Propelled by a senior management team led by Chairman and founder Stephen R. Karp, Vice Chairman Steven S. Fischman, and President Douglass E. Karp, New England Development has more than 50 million square feet of retail, commercial, residential, and hospitality space to its credit.

With deep roots and experience in all aspects of the development, management, and operations of distinctive properties, New England Development is a partner that constructively anticipates and responds to the changing needs of retailers, shoppers, travelers, mariners, diners, investors, and civic leaders.
