The Durban Group, LLC

Charlotte, NC

The Durban Group is an ever-expanding family of companies focused on improving community. Simply put, we are a group of entrepreneurs that enjoy helping other entrepreneurs succeed. This passion has rewarded us with a diverse network of relationships and often leads us into unique endeavors.


The Durban Group began as a commercial real estate development company in 2011, specializing in single tenant net lease properties. Since then, it has developed over 200 such properties across the United States and, through Durban Development, expanded to become a full service real estate company, developing larger scale commercial, residential, and mixed use projects.


But it has also grown to be much more. The Durban Group’s growing portfolio now includes everything from fashion and hospitality brands to manufacturing, retail and beyond. The team also lends its support to local nonprofit organizations such as Project 658 and the Steve Smith Family Foundation. In all of its endeavors, Durban seeks to forge lasting relationships with its clients, partners and the communities it serves.


Durban Development offers a full range of real estate services including brokerage, site acquisition, land entitlement, design, permitting, construction & asset management, tenant representation and development consultation. Durban was founded in 2011 by Glen Cherry and Collin Ricks as a relationship-driven real estate development company. Initially focused on single tenant, net leased assets, the company has since developed over 200 such properties in more 30 states. Over the course of the last five years, Durban has strategically diversified both its focus and portfolio to include multi-tenant retail, mixed-use commercial, office, and residential developments. We provide a full range of commercial and residential real estate development services including site acquisition, land entitlement, design, permitting, construction, asset management, and consultation.


Headquartered in Charlotte, NC, with a regional office in Pittsburgh, PA, we serve clients on a local, regional and national level, having operated in more than 30 states. Since 2011, we have completed projects spanning the US, resulting in the construction of over 2,000,000 square feet of retail, office, and residential space.
