About Us

The Pemtom Difference

Pemtom was founded in 1963, and has accomplished a number of firsts in the industry. These include one of the first Planned Unit Developments, the employment of landscape architects for the preservation of trees, and the use of architects to design home exteriors and land plans that result in more creative neighborhoods.

In 1990, we elected to specialize only in land development and to do so in a fashion that would add value to the communities in which we develop. We were also committed to establishing neighborhoods that create real estate investment opportunities for those individuals buying lots from us and building homes in the Twin Cities market.

Since 1990, we have created over 20 new neighborhoods in the Metro area.
Trillium Bay in Minnetrista, Greenwoods on the Lake in Greenwood, Legends of Stillwater in Stillwater, Wynnfield, Settlers Ridge, Hennepin Village, and Entrevaux in Eden Prairie, Locust Hills in Wayzata, and our newest developments, Charley Lake Preserve  and Red Pine Farm in North Oaks and Blossom Hill in Eden Prairie.

Our goal has always been to provide exciting, well planned, neighborhoods that will be an asset to the whole community.

We have developments throughout the Metropolitan area, but are always looking for new land investment opportunities to create neighborhoods of distinction.

Integrity with all units of government, our financial partners, and consumers is of utmost importance to us.


Residential Land Development

Residential land development is the core of what we do. We purchase property in key locations; endeavor to learn as much about the property and community as possible; design a neighborhood that fits the site, the surroundings, and the market; acquire the necessary government approvals and permits; and then construct the "bones" for the new neighborhood. We then select the builder(s) to construct the homes and fill it with residents and the neighborhood is complete.

Development Consulting

With the same effort and concern for details as on our own properties, Pemtom can provide professional assistance to land owners who want to develop their own property or to just better understand what the possibilities are. We can help with 3 lots or 300 lots. In addition, if the City or other agency is proposing something that gives a land owner concern, Pemtom can represent that owner in the discussions and negotiations with the agencies.

Land Owner Representation

When Pemtom is engaged to sell a land parcel it first undertakes to study the land just as it would for a Pemtom development.
Pemtom understands from its own history that the sale of land is about far more than the property itself. Land held for generations many times represents an owner’s identity. The transfer of title must be done in a dignified and discrete manner. In addition, how the land is ultimately developed must be something of which the owner can be proud.
The Pemtom Land Company study includes not only discussing with the city planners how the property is guided but talking with any other government entity who can control the ultimate use of the property.
If necessary, Pemtom has retained engineering firms to review a tentative development plan in light of a site’s soils, topography, wetlands, and other factors. The next all-important step is to understand the current market for the land and its highest and best use. This last step includes not only a historic review of local absorption but talking to other quality land developers to gain their insights.
The final step is conveying this information to the landowner. We believe that a knowledgeable seller is underrated and a key component of a land sale.
