The Builder: Carpathia

2017, Nelson+Stowe and Ross Group joined forces as Carpathia.  With a collective experience of 50 years of design, engineering, construction, and development the partners of Carpathia have successfully delivered $2 billion in complex projects that include market-leading office, high-rise hotels, retail, restaurants, apartments, and government facilities to the restoration of Art Deco masterpieces and creative retail centers crafted from repurposed shipping containers.

 

In recent years Carpathia has made a name for themselves by tackling some of the toughest restoration and redevelopment projects and creating market-changing spaces that have elevated the neighborhood experience and business districts in which they’re located. They are guided by twin commitments: to achieve excellent returns for investors while creating superior urban spaces.

 

Carpathia has consistently created opportunity out of challenge and is excited to expand into the Colorado Springs market with The Office at Victory Ridge.  Along with Mission Hill Capital as an equity partner, the team will be completing the four-story, $35 million, 142,000 square foot, Class-A office and existing retail buildings in the heart of this premier development in Colorado Springs’ most exciting submarket.
