Has A Story.
Here is Ours.
Jack Green founded J.A.Green (JAG) originally as a builder focused mainly on the post WWII housing boom. Later, he expanded into commercial and multi-family development. Jack had a strong reputation as a fair and honest developer in the New York Metro area.
Jack’s son, Allan, joined the business, and saw an increasing trend towards globalization and a growing need for specialized warehouse space in the emerging air cargo and freight forwarding industries. Allan, along with his father Jack, started developing small warehouses near Idlewild Airport—later renamed John F. Kennedy International Airport. Allan utilized his training as an applied anthropologist and developed a keen understanding of tenants’ needs for a uniquely designed warehouse to enhance their businesses.
Allan continued to expand at JFK, ultimately becoming the largest industrial developer in that market. In 1985 Allan saw a unique opportunity near a new—but growing—airport, Dallas Ft/ Worth International Airport. Allan acquired an initial 35 acres of vacant land in Grapevine, TX and built the “prototype” logistics/distribution/air cargo building. The design of those buildings is the basis for the design which JAG continues to use today. Allan also grew JAG’s holdings on the west coast, acquiring vacant land in Seattle (near Sea-Tac International Airport).
Allan’s son Dan joined JAG full time in 1992. Dan began as a property manager in the
NY metro area, then moved to Dallas where he grew the DFW operation, led the
development of the Sea-Tac facilities and developed 120 acres of vacant land near
Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (“IAH”).
Allan retired and became Chairman Emeritus while Dan took over as President of JAG. Under Dan’s leadership, JAG continued to develop high quality industrial buildings near airports across the U.S. and JAG added to i t s holdings in Texas, Washington and Georgia.
JAG partners with one of its longtime major tenants, Forward Air, Inc. , to construct a new 250,000 square foot facility adjacent to DFW. Due to the complexity and ultimate success, the development was named one of the best real estate deals of 2009 by Dallas Business Journal.
JAG acquires 250 acres of vacant land immediately adjacent to Denver International Airport. The site i s the closest privately owned land near the airport cargo tarmac and i s also one of the first ground up developments in the United States to be located in a confirmed Opportunity Zone.
