About Winthrop Development

Winthrop Development enjoys a successful history of over 35 years. Founded by Hans Schmidt, Winthrop has become a vertically integrated real estate development company shepherding greenfield projects from idea stage through build-out. With a legacy across asset classes, Winthrop has emerged as a developer of missing middle housing in core regional submarkets. Winthrop seeks to enrich built environments through a community-friendly and societally accretive approach to building. Winthrop’s focus is the inclusion of avant-garde, sustainable technologies, planning and proposing community-vetted concepts, and responding to key sources of submarket demand. Current projects aim to address the long-term housing shortage.
