Current Projects

At Knapp Properties we are always looking to improve our city through real estate development. We’re interested in building commercial and residential properties that will mean something to the people who live in them and work in them. They aren’t just offices or apartment buildings, they’re homes. Here’s what we’re hard at work on now.

They aren’t just offices or apartment buildings, they’re your work place or home.
