Who We Are

Veridea's Roots

The Veridea Group traces its beginnings to 1992, when Bob and Mary Mahaney completed their first real estate development project – a 6,000 square foot retail store in Marquette, MI. Since that time, Veridea and its affiliates have successfully developed over 75 projects valued in excess of $500 million. Today, Veridea is the largest private developer in the Upper Peninsula with a diverse portfolio spread across multiple states.

From modest beginnings, Veridea has evolved into an integrated design/develop/management firm. It has assembled a talented team with strong and diverse industry experience across the organization. Veridea has gained a reputation for recognizing opportunity where abandoned blight exists; for creating value in underutilized land and buildings; and for delivering thoughtful, tailored development that invigorates the redevelopment of surrounding neighborhoods and strengthens the community as a whole.

"While we are proud of our many accomplishments, our greatest satisfaction comes from witnessing the positive impact our projects have had on the communities in which we work and live. Veridea’s projects have brought new life and energy to surrounding neighborhoods, enhanced community perceptions, created jobs, provided homes, and positively impacted residents’ quality of life in numerous ways."
