Who We Are

“We Develop Opportunity”

Echelon LLC, based in St. Petersburg, Florida, is a privately owned real estate company involved in the development, ownership and management of multi-family residential, commercial office, ancillary retail, hospitality and mixed-use real estate properties for its own portfolio and for clients. Echelon’s predecessor was established in 1987, and has developed and managed millions of square feet of commercial office, industrial, waterfront and warehouse space as well as over 30 upscale multi-family properties throughout the southeast and southwest United States.  Echelon has helped to shape the commercial and multi-family landscape in the communities we serve with a commitment to superior standards, unwavering integrity, community involvement and developing opportunity.

Note:  Echelon LLC was established as a new entity in 2006 through the acquisition of staff, intellectual property and certain assets of Echelon Development LLC, which was the successor-in-interest to Echelon International Corporation (formerly EIN: NYSE).  EIN was the successor-in-interest to Talquin Corporation, a subsidiary of Florida Progress Corporation (formerly FPC: NYSE).

“Echelon, with a dedication to excellence built on the strength, integrity and imagination of our employees, is committed to developing real estate products that provide better ways to live and work.”
