About Fuqua Development
Jeff Fuqua formed his new company Fuqua Development, LP in March 2012, after twenty-four years with Sembler Company leaving as President of the firm. Jeff made the Sembler company name synonymous with innovative, cutting-edge, mixed use developments. He was responsible for marquee Atlanta developments such as Town Brookhaven, Edgewood Retail Development, Perimeter Place, Midtown Place, The Prado, Lindbergh Plaza, Lenox Marketplace, Canton Town Center and Henry Town Center, just to name a few.
Jeff brings along his established development team. Partner Heather Correa, formerly Vice President of Sembler was a key executive involved in the planning and creation of the developments of nearly 40 projects over her fifteen year span there. Heather's work with the development of Edgewood Retail District was the largest zoning in the City of Atlanta under Mayor Shirley Franklin's administration.
During Fuqua's tenure in Atlanta, Sembler has received numerous development awards and recognitions including being named Top Commercial Retail Developer twelve consecutive years by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
Fuqua Development Company is headquartered in Atlanta, which has been Fuqua's base of operations (and his home) since 1992. The company is pursuing major developments in Atlanta, Denver, Florida, South Carolina, and Canada.
Jeff Fuqua is committed to enhancing neighborhoods and communities by investing in what would normally be considered “areas in decline”. Fuqua’s level of commitment outweighs purely financial gain due to the desire to improve neighborhoods and communities and create thousands of jobs. He has a “stick to it” attitude where many others before him left the areas for greener suburban pastures.
He has received multiple awards for his efforts in redeveloping the urban core of metro Atlanta as well as other urban areas in the Southeast. The Urban Land Institute, the International Council of Shopping Centers, the City of Atlanta, DeKalb County, the Atlanta Business Chronicle all have recognized Jeff with prestigious awards as a developer for his large scale community involvement through mixed use developments.
