Company History

Our Company History

In 2007, two entrepreneurial spirited, self-driven individuals crossed paths while working in Point Breeze, a South Philadelphia neighborhood.  Mike Stillwell had recently resigned from his career as a foreman to pursue his passion to create a thriving construction and development company in Philadelphia.  Sean Schellenger had left his position with a national builder to follow his aspirations and vision for what urban market development could be.  After meeting, it did not take long for Mike & Sean to recognize they had a similar vision.  Their instant bond, trust, and shared business goals quickly blossomed into a partnership in 2008, at the height of the recession.
