ABOUT US

TierView Development is a young development company dedicated to creating living spaces that have a durable aesthetic appeal and building investments that yield both a quick return of capital and long-term cash flow. Not afraid to buck market trends and challenge the status quo, TVD is committed to a finished product that allows tenants to feel like they are in the home they want to LIVE in; our sense of social responsibility ensures that we are the neighbor and partner you want to have.

Originally founded in 2012, TierView Development started with small projects across three states. By the close of 2017, our focus has tightened while our operations expanded to a total AUM of almost 30M in Philadelphia, PA and Austin, TX. We aim to double that by the end of 2020.

TVD’s primary investment strategy is “buy and hold”, always with an eye to the 20 to 30-year horizon. This translates to a sense of quality and deliberateness that is at the very heart of every action. Every deal is both a lucrative income producing investment as well as an investment in the city and community we are a part of.

James McIlhinney
General Contractor

James McIlhinney was born and raised in Philadelphia and has been in the construction industry since his grandfather, a general contractor and developer himself, handed him tools as a kid. Mr. McIlilhinney started his professional life in construction for a company that specialized in big box retail and extensive institutional rehab projects. After almost ten years, he started his own firm, JFMacks Group. Since then he has built over a hundred homes and several hundred apartments, all in his home town of Philadelphia.

Jimmy runs his company on three principles: hard work pays off, the simplest answer is probably the right one, and every problem has a solution. TierView is proud to count him as a friend and partner in all of our construction projects.

During rare times when James isn’t walking a jobsite, you can usually bet he’s fishing off Cape May.
