Development and Construction

For many years, DTN has been its own developer for student housing projects as well as mixed use projects in the Greater Lansing area. Through our development & construction division, we work with both local and national partners throughout the development and construction process, bringing the best local knowledge and resources together with national financial partners and architects. Additionally, we own and operate our own construction company that has built all of our most recent projects.
