Kajima Development Corporation

Kajima Development Corporation (KDC) was established in 1979 as a 100% subsidiary of Kajima Corporation. KDC was founded aiming to strive as a real estate developer in the United States following success in the Lake Point Condominium Project in Minneapolis, a residential development (by Kajima International). KDC’s headquarters was established in Los Angeles with branches in New York and Minneapolis. KDC’s first and most ambitious project was Riverplace, a large scale urban redevelopment mixed-use project located in Minneapolis.

Since then, KDC has completed many development projects in California, Maryland, Washington State, Florida, Hawaii, Texas and Arizona. The projects are in wide variety including: office buildings, shopping centers, hospitals, airport hangars and residential developments.
