The Veridea Group operates two distinct, yet complementary businesses: real estate development and hotel management.

The Veridea Group is proudly headquartered in the Lake Superior port city of Marquette, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Our geographic focus is primarily the Upper Midwest. Veridea’s expertise lies in the secondary and tertiary markets within this region; communities that offer exceptional opportunities and consistent returns.


“Veridea” Defined:

Veridea takes its name from three Latin words that reflect our vision and values:

  • Veritas: Truth, the foundation on which we conduct ourselves.
  • Viridis: Green, representing our desire to enrich our communities both culturally and environmentally as a result of our work.
  • Idea: Conceptual thinking,  reflecting our continuous pursuit of creative approaches to the opportunities at hand.

The Veridea Group Philosophy

  • Conduct ourselves with integrity
  • Deliver superior returns to our investors
  • Make meaningful contributions to our communities
  • Assemble a team of talented people who share our vision and values
  • Provide exceptional service to our clients and guests
  • Embrace change and welcome new challenges


  • "For nearly five years, Myefski Architects has collaborated with the Veridea Group to execute dozens of developments in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The team’s vast knowledge of the real estate community, as well as their ability to work with local municipalities, makes the Veridea Group an essential partner in our own firm's pursuit of innovative architecture. By combining their leasing, accounting and construction management functions, the Veridea Group demonstrates a unique skill set that has proven invaluable to our team. This translates into spaces that not only fit current client needs, but also anticipates the needs of future clients. The team is always willing to work outside of the box to seek the best design solution for their tenants and stays true to their reputation of outstanding service. Companies seeking the very best development affiliate that the region has to offer should look no further, Veridea is the ideal partner."
    - John W. Myefski - Myefski Architects Inc, President
  • "First National Trust and Wealth Management moved into the West Towne Center in December of 2012. We have had an excellent experience with the Veridea Group from the start. The space we are in was built directly to our needs and was ready for us in a quick time-frame. The property is very attractive and well maintained, which is important to us in an image-driven business. Our customers like the location and ease of access to our office. The staff at the Veridea Group has been very helpful and responsive to us whenever we have had questions, I would highly recommend the Veridea Group to any business seeking space to set up in."
    - Michael L. Morgan - First National Trust & Wealth Management, Vice President
  • "We moved into our suite over seven years ago and it was a very positive change for Manpower. Veridea has always been top-notch when it comes to taking care of us. They treat each of their tenants with respect and importance. The Veridea staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the relationship goes way beyond property management with such an amazing team!"
    - Stephanie Zadroga-Langlois - Manpower, Area Manager
  • "From the time I first approached Veridea about leasing space for my (then-new) business, until now-- nearly 12 years later-- my experience with them has been nothing less than stellar. Owning and operating a business can at times be a roller-coaster ride. I appreciate the contrast of it being solidly housed in a beautifully renovated and maintained building, managed by a team of hard-working and ethical professionals. They treat their properties like gold, and their tenants like family. It has been a pleasure."
    - Sue Kensington - Hotplate Pottery & Art Studio, Owner
  • "My experience working with the Veridea Group was a pleasant one. Their team was attentive to the needs of our business and always made themselves available from the first time I contacted them through the completion of our construction project."
    - Bryce Buntin - Forefront Dermatology, Business Development Specialist
