Our Vision

We are a midsize, family run, private real estate development company that represents over 25 years of direct development experience and success with thousands of units created. Specializing in multi-family apartments/residential condominiums, we focus on initial development in up-and-coming markets that ultimately contributes to the upward transformation of communities and enhances the lives of all residents.

We establish trusted relationships with specialized professionals, who together bring thousands of hours of combined experience to our team. This allows us to thoroughly analyze an opportunity from all perspectives so we can make educated investment decisions in unique areas of growth potential.

Over the years, we have built a reputation in the Utah marketplace based on confidence, integrity, consistency and success. Henderson Development prides itself on making informed, calculated risks, while maintaining acute attention to detail and building a quality product, while staying on budget and on schedule.

I have invested with Blake Henderson in several Henderson Development projects over the past decade and have been very impressed with their approach plus results to date. Blake has identified excellent, well located opportunities in the Salt Lake market, attractive for affordable apartment development. He has then overseen construction within budget, healthy lease up and efficient property management. Throughout he has communicated effectively with investors. The result has been very strong results to date with a solid outlook for more upside in cash flow and appreciation ahead. Blake and his partners have earned my trust and I plan to continue investing with them.

The Henderson Development Leadership Team

You’re only as good as the people you work with. That’s why we’ve developed relations with the best and most proven organizations across Utah. We customize the team for each project, so the final product is what is best for our constituents. Consequently that means we are able to keep overhead low and move more quickly than a larger development firm.
