We are more than developers, we are investors.

How We Began

After working at one of the largest corporate real estate companies in the world, Jones Lang LaSalle, Todd Canter decided to take his 25 years of global real estate experience and build his own development and investment platform. Starting with his first purpose-built, self-storage development in Middle River, Maryland and then expanding to a redevelopment of an old printing factory in Pikesville, Maryland, Vulcan Real Estate Development was started. Two years after the Pikesville facility opened, Vulcan co-developed two other self-storage facilities in Hanover, Pennsylvania and Woodlawn, Maryland. Vulcan also embarked on its first hotel development in Northeast Ohio, partnering with Wyndham Hotels and Resorts to build the Riverbend Hotel, a boutique hotel overlooking Lake Erie.
