Leaders in Real Estate Development for Nearly 35 Years


AST Development Corporation is a full-service real estate development and investment company, which has been successful in the acquisition, reposition, and long-term ownership of numerous properties over a wide range of asset classes. The company was founded in 1985 by its president, Robert J. D’Anton, and has grown to prominence throughout the industry.

The scope and scale of our project experience is greatly varied, and includes development of corporate/medical office, mission-critical technology facilities, parking structures, retail, governmental, industrial, institutional, single-family and multi-family residential properties. AST creates and enhances the value of properties through various means, including value engineering of construction methodology; budget, schedule, and quality control; and by sourcing and securing creative financing structures.

Over the last several years, AST has evolved from a combined development and general contracting/construction management firm, to strictly a real estate development and investment company. The decision was made to phase-out the construction side of our business to focus more on our true area of expertise, which is creating value in real estate transactions through our keen insight into the value of properties, knowledge of the development and approval process, and ability to arrange and secure financing.
