Our History

Ted Donnell

Ted Donnell

Established in 1965

Northwest Property Development has been operating under family leadership for three generations.  In 1965, Ted Donnell started Northwest Properties with the purchase and development of 5 multifamily apartment buildings.

Ted was then able to utilize his relationship with local banks and businesses to complete the building and development of a total of 10 properties over the span of 10 years including a mix of retail, office, and residential buildings. Through his forward thinking and his great attention to detail and service, Ted was able to create a business and a legacy that would endure the test of time.

In 1980 Dana Donnell took over management of the company and continued the reputation started by his father.  Dana grew NPD through the acquisition of underutilized properties and the redevelopment of existing properties within the company’s portfolio.  

His strong emphasis on customer service and care has shaped NPD’s partnership approach to building strong relationships with business owners. This relational emphasis has provided long term success for business owners throughout Northwest Property Development’s buildings.
