StreetLights Residential, a design-driven developer of multifamily and mixed-use communities, announced its expansion to the Arizona market with the opening of a Phoenix office.

Greg Nadeau, StreetLights’ director of development, who is responsible for multi-family developments and acquisition activity in Phoenix and the surrounding region, leads the office.

StreetLights is based in Dallas with offices in Austin, Houston, San Diego, Nashville and now Phoenix. The company recently targeted several new markets for expansion due to a strong economy and the demand for multi-family developments.

“StreetLights has experienced a great deal of growth in the last five years and we are excited to continue that in Arizona,” said Doug Chesnut, CEO of StreetLights Residential. “Our plan is to bring exceptional living to Phoenix. I know Greg will do a great job in leading StreetLights in our efforts.”

Nadeau joined StreetLights in 2013 as a senior project manager of land development in the Dallas office, where he oversaw acquisition, entitlement and horizontal design for the company.

StreetLights Residential creates luxury multifamily communities in urban areas and we see great opportunity for continued development using our design approach that is endearing to the communities in and around Phoenix,” said Nadeau. “We already have projects in the pipeline and are actively looking for developable land in the area.”

Prior to joining the StreetLights team, Nadeau served as a senior project manager at Pacheco Koch in Dallas, where he managed the design of complex private development projects and coordinated the company’s business development efforts.

Throughout his 12-year career, Nadeau has overseen the planning and design of various multifamily, mixed-use, office and master-planned development projects. Nadeau is a licensed professional engineer and a certified LEED Accredited Professional.

He is a member of Urban Land Institute.  He has held various leadership positions with the National Associate of Industrial and Office Properties. Nadeau holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University.
