About Commercial

Focused on grocery-anchored, mixed-use, retail, and industrial developments

Thompson Thrift's commercial business unit develops first-class grocery-anchored shopping centers, high-energy mixed-use projects, and state-of-the-art industrial projects across the country, with a strategic focus on high-growth markets in the southwest and southeast regions of the US. The Commercial group has developed over 150 projects ranging in size from single-tenant, build-to-suits to large-format, fully-integrated mixed-use projects, and first-in-class distribution and manufacturing facilities.

Special attention to locations that bring new business opportunities to underserved areas across our target markets is our top priority. We follow disciplined acquisition criteria to ensure the success of each development, including locating sites with regional accessibility in the path of progress and affluent high-growth markets, as well as, dynamic infill locations within top-tier established trade areas.

Our in-house leasing team works closely with the development team on the merchandising plan for each Thompson Thrift mixed-use and retail development, followed by in-depth research on new and existing businesses looking to expand or relocate in the markets we serve. We also work with some of the nation's top brokerage firms to ensure we are connecting with retailers and other businesses across all categories—from grocery & big box to smaller inline users, entertainment, restaurants, soft goods, hospitality, and other unique service-oriented tenants.

The increasing trend for online purchases is creating unparalleled growth opportunities for warehouse and distribution space across the country. Thompson Thrift is uniquely suited to serve our clients across a wide spectrum of the supply chain and deliver smart logistics solutions that meet the growing distribution needs of today's online merchants and brick & mortar retailers as their distribution and warehousing needs continue to grow at an exponential pace. Additionally, our team of experienced professionals delivers state-of-the-art industrial projects designed to meet the needs of the fast-growing advanced manufacturing and tech sectors which are fueling the “economy of tomorrow” and helping to drive high-wage job growth across the United States.

Where We've Been

Where We're Going


Thompson Thrift started its journey into the commercial sector in the mid-1990's with only 20 retail projects in Indiana and Illinois.


Since then, Thompson Thrift's commercial business unit has grown exponentially by expanding its product offerings to include grocery-anchored, retail, mixed-use and industrial developments in new markets across the US. Thompson Thrift now has over 150 commercial developments and is continuing to grow.


The future of Thompson Thrift's commercial development centers around expansion into new markets, enhanced research and depth of understanding in current core markets, continued discipline in underwriting and site selection, and leveraged relationships with brokerages, builders, master developers, and economic, planning, and transportation departments.
