Welcome to HARDER DEVELOPMENT

Our strategy involves CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH SPACES IN WAYS THAT SPARK CREATIVITY, CELEBRATE INTELLECT AND CULTIVATE ART AND DESIGN.

Harder Development was founded by Ashley Harder in 2011 after observing the enormous potential and dynamic growth of the city. Sharing the vision of inspiring community members, Harder began focusing on historic neighborhoods that retain the city's character while providing opportunities for newcomers to establish their businesses downtown. We are committed to hone the historic beauty of Phoenix and build with intention.

Our objective is to provide the local community with warm, unique spaces that are truly special to the community–reminiscent of main street shops from a simpler time. We feel our company is not only in the business of creating distinctive spaces, but also building lasting and meaningful relationships within them. We feel cultivating positive relationships with our tenants is a well-placed investment that aids in securing long term leases that benefit our community. 

Our mission is to contribute to an overall higher quality of life shared by the people who choose to work, live, and play in downtown Phoenix. At Harder Development, downtown Phoenix is our home–we live here, we work here and we play here. It is our passion to make lasting improvements to the community we call home, and invite you to be a part of our exciting vision.

Beginning by understanding the communities we serve is a key part of the process to building with intention. Our 1:1 dialogue with members of the community and involvement in civic and professional organizations, non-profits, and local arts and culture keep us grounded and thinking forward.
