Highest and Best Use


I am frequently asked to describe the mission and skill set of MidCity. We say “we have vision,” “we are innovative,” “we can execute,” etc. Those are all true but one term, “highest and best use” seems to say it all to me. This somewhat academic term focuses on the potential changes to a property and if those changes are 1) financially feasible and will yield the highest risk adjusted financial return, 2) physically possible and 3) legally allowable (currently zoned or rezoned). For our own properties or in an advisory role, we excel at bringing properties to their highest and best value.

Decades of experience

Founded in 2009, MidCity Real Estate Partners acquires, repositions, and develops office, retail, and mixed-use properties. Through MidCity Realty Corporation, an affiliate real estate brokerage company, MidCity offers a full range of advisory services.
MidCity is the successor company to The Griffin Company, a 35 year old full service commercial real estate development and construction company headquartered in Atlanta, GA. MidCity retained all key personnel including Kirk Demetrops and Roger White. Kirk Demetrops, President of MidCity and former President of The Griffin Company, led the acquisition and development strategy of The Griffin Company from 2001 through 2009. A key component of the strategy was a fundamental shift to redevelopment and mixed-use development to meet the market demands and the demographic shift to urban, suburban/urban markets and town centers. Today, MidCity continues with this strategy.
