At Lawson, we understand that what we do – and how we do it – affects the everyday lives of people we care about. We work hard to make sure that impact is positive, sometimes dramatically so. Our business model vertically integrates our development, construction, property management and asset management expertise, which enables us to maximize value at every stage. When you act with integrity, focus on quality and work to find creative solutions, great things are possible. It’s how we’ve done business since our founding in 1972.

Our core purpose is to have a positive impact on the lives of the people we serve – from our residents and team members to our investors and partners.
