new brand. upcycled vision.

The Coppess Group has evolved into a new brand: 616 Development. Based on a similar vision to bring underutilized properties to life, 616 is a stronger iteration of Derek J. Coppess’ initial company. 616 Development has grown beyond neighborhoods to focus on nurturing the talents of Derek’s 616 Tribe and growth in the urban core.

The boutique firm rehabilitates underused spaces in the city center for residential, commercial and retail uses made for the people who live, work and play in the city.

The goal: create a critical mass which spills its growth into outlying neighborhoods.

Launching off experience gleaned from years of residential neighborhood development, 616 Development is a 10 year old startup with a proven track record and a fresh approach to urban revitalization.
