About 7th Street


Seventh Street Development is a privately held real estate development company. We combine a unique mix of institutional financial strength and discipline coupled with implementation by hands-on, experienced entrepreneurs. Its managing principal, Craig Furniss, has over 30 years of broad development experience and is personally engaged in each project. Our financial partners are among the most respected institutions in the business. We pride ourselves on our reputation for personal integrity, fast action, and creative and flexible transaction structures as well as the positive impacts our developments have on local communities.

Named after the historic Seventh Street Produce Market in Downtown Los Angeles, where the two founding principals first met, Seventh Street Development has a well-defined and focused business strategy.
