Development Done Differently



How will this building improve its community? 


Every facet of our development process is structured around the local community. From initial planning meetings to ribbon cutting ceremonies, Karsten approaches development in a personal manner. By focusing on communities and building relationships throughout the development process, Karsten has become a development leader throughout the northeast.

St. George's Condominiums - Norwood, MA

Karsten renovated three buildings into fifteen condominiums and oversaw the entire project, including planning, design and construction. This three year re-development was the first successful 40R project in Massachusetts. The Karsten Company worked with local and state officials to meet state guidelines for the development program. 

“John Iredale and his team from The Karsten Company were absolutely terrific to work with during the permitting and construction process. The completed Courtyard at St. George preserved an important part of Norwood’s past while providing much needed housing in a culturally diverse neighborhood. It was a true pleasure to work with them.”   ~ Steven Costello, Director Community Planning and Economic Development, Town of Norwood, MA

St. Chrysostom's Condominiums - Wollaston, MA


Karsten oversaw the construction of ten new twenty-two hundred square foot luxury townhouses in the heart of Wollaston. As development managers, Karsten coordinated with the local parish, town officials and the surrounding community to construct new townhouses that fit into the existing neighborhood and helped the local church group. 

“John led a team of parishioners and successfully developed the townhouse project, raising $1.3 million for the Parish of St. Chrysostom’s. An incredible job”.   ~ Ward Smith, Parishioner, St. Chrysostom’s Parish
