Who We Are

Our Vision: We will positively impact communities by creating sustainable environments that embody a unique sense of place.



Luck Development Partners believes in the power of imagination, the power of exploration and the power of the pioneering spirit. It is with this mindset we consistently emerge with new ways to connect communities to nature, history and culture. We strive to have a positive impact in our communities by creating sustainable environments that embody a unique sense of place.

Luck Development Partners (LDP), an affiliate of Luck Companies, began in 1993 with a strong commitment to the same values that make up the foundation of Luck Companies:

  • Leadership
  • Commitment
  • Integrity
  • Creativity

Each day, we rely on these core values to lead our entities through creative exploration. This exploration leads us to create unique places that responsibly complement the surrounding area's historic and natural beauty and will evolve and thrive as time moves forward.

This is the legacy that Luck Development Partners builds.
