UP Development (UP) out of Franklin, Tennessee is a premier retail developer focused predominately in the Southeastern United States. With over 20 years of experience. UP Development has positioned itself as a go to shop for developers, financiers, and owners with troubled assets that require creative and unique workout solutions.
UP has successfully designed, permitted, and developed retail centers anchored by national retailers including but not limited to Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Target, Meijer, Kroger, Publix, Belk's, ToysRus/BabysRUs, and Dicks Sporting Goods, to name a few.
UP developed predominately for The Inland Real Estate Corporation's Southeast REIT up until the REIT was sold to Developers Diversified Realty Corporation (DDR) in 2007. The principal of UP Development, Scott Fish has been instrumental in successfully managing both new development projects and workout projects. Scott is noted for often stating that: "there isn't a deal that cant be fixed, you just got to want to fix it"
We currently have built and under construction over half a million square feet of retail in the worst economy since 1957. Credit is nearly impossible to secure. Yet even in these tough times, we are able to see opportunities in re-developing urban areas that were skipped over while retailers chased new growth. We emphasize the re-development and/or expanded use of existing buildings and infrastructure rather than promoting the suburban sprawls promoted heavily in the 90's.
Scott has surrounded himself with various partners who provide the company with a valuable group of diverse resources. Since the sale to DDR, UP has concentrated its efforts to provide creative development workout plans to recapture lost value for lenders and owners
