Predecessor Organizations

Toombs Development Company was founded by Scott Toombs in 1981 on the back of his experience on industry-leading development projects at the Rouse Company, a pioneering leader in the US real estate industry. Among notable highlights, Rouse built the first enclosed shopping mall on the US East Coast (Harundale Mall 1958), the first food court in a shopping mall (Paramus Park Mall, New Jersey 1974), several of the most prominent city marketplaces in America: (Faneuil Hall Marketplace – Boston, South Street Seaport – New York City, Harborplace – Baltimore, Gallery at Market East – Philadelphia), and one of the first and arguably most successful planned communities in America (Columbia, Maryland) .

Mr. Toombs was the Development Director for both the South Street Seaport in New York City and the Gallery at Market East in Philadelphia. Both projects were innovative, creative and excellent examples of working to create developments that improved the fabric of the neighborhood through smart, trailblazing development.

Following his involvement in several major, successful projects at Rouse, Mr. Toombs broke away to engage in principal real estate investment and development on his own, retaining the basic cultural DNA of the Rouse Company in his projects and development vision. Mr. Toombs’ notable, high impact developments include Aramark Tower in Philadelphia, Redwood Tower in Baltimore, and Princeton Forrestal Village in New Jersey.
