It affects every industry, business, and life.  Disruption forces change.  But it also presents incredible opportunities for those willing to imagine what could be.

This is our forté.

Inherently curious, we consider ourselves perpetual students.  We study our industry, of course.  But we also are keenly interested in societal trends, cultural trajectories and the world at large.  We examine it all looking for potential convergences; intersections that signal radical opportunities to re-think old approaches and challenge established convention.

Opportunities to create something – someplace – utterly unique; starting with our own company.

As we adapt to the disruption in the world, our thinking and focus has expanded well beyond the boundaries of traditional real estate development.  Our projects and our business are now defined and driven by integrations – those innovative syntheses of land, traditional real estate uses, and cultural and lifestyle elements that infuse real estate into the world and the world into real estate.

Our Approach

Thinking Backwards

We believe that successful real estate development is not just about building buildings, but about creating desirable and engaging environments for our users.

So, we begin each project with that end in mind.

Our Approach

Our Team

Breadth and depth of expertise

Diversity of thinking is critical to our integration strategy.  So, we assembled a creative team with robust skills across a wide variety of professional functions, both those typical in the real estate industry and some that are less expected.   We tackle each project as a team, facilitating a truly collaborative approach to innovation, integration and creative problem solving.

History

Bourn Companies was founded by Don Bourn and Alan Tanner in Tucson, Arizona in 1990.  But it was their first major project — the redevelopment of Tucson’s Foothills Mall in the mid 1990’s — that really put them on the map.  It was an ambitious project for the young entrepreneurs, but the project was a resounding success and propelled the growth of the company.  Since then, Bourn Companies and its previous incarnations have successfully completed more than 40 projects and 4.2 million square feet of development in retail, office, hospitality and medical across several states.  Today, the company is focused on integrating those real estate uses with other lifestyle elements in large-scale, mixed-use projects in and around Tucson and the southwestern United States.
