About Us

Anchor Development is a commercial real estate development company serving clients in multiple markets across the country. Our unique combination of professional experience and powerful relationships sets us apart from others in the industry.

Anchor Development was founded by Douglas Compton, a retail developer with more than 25 years experience in retail brokerage and development, and Charles Townsend, the founder of Anchor Associates, a full-service commercial real estate brokerage firm specializing in retail properties.

We offer a comprehensive range of traditional turnkey build-to-suit services, as well as acquisition, redevelopment and sale-leaseback services.

Our ability to take a project through each phase of development – from site selection through store opening – enables our clients to rely on a single resource from start to finish. Nothing is more important to us than delivering on our commitment to store openings that are on time and on budget.
