Our Mission

OakPrime Capital is in the business of rebuilding communities and ushering a new era of commercial and residential development in Detroit. We are on a mission to re-energize the spirit of the city, unlock opportunity for its economy and people, and kindle sentiments that attract investment and new residents seeking a piece of Detroit’s history, culture, sports, gastronomy, waterfront skyscrapers, classic car events and electronic music festivals.

Our business objectives and personal aspirations for the city we love so much are interconnected. We believe that real estate development, grassroots activation and community participation from people as well as local businesses and institutions – can together create synergies needed to take Detroit to greater heights and empower our great city to weather economic storms with stolidity and grace.

About Us

Detroit is not in a state of flux, it is adapting and on its way to emerging victorious. The city's history is already profound, but it is on course to becoming even more special. And OakPrime believes we can contribute to Detroit's ongoing story of strength and resilience.

What part will we play? Our real estate restoration and development focuses on delivering quality and preserving the originality and integrity of the city's historic buildings and time-tested community spaces. Our goal is not to build and leave, but spawn happy, involved communities that flourish and grow.

We are especially passionate about developing and renovating community/public spaces where connections are made, barriers break down, and everyone comes together as one, forgetting superficial distinctions of class, religion or race. We want to find and enhance the beauty and potential of community gardens, public facilities and community centers.

We are off to a positive start, and strive to go the extra mile to create a better Detroit with its mind willing to conquer new frontiers and its heart in the right place.
