PDC was formed in July of 2008 to develop retail shopping centers with Safeway as one of it's primary anchors. Our core principles are to:
  • Concentrate in Safeway's urban and suburban markets with high barriers to entry
  • Focus on "trophy" Grade Properties
  • Adhere to internal investment requirements
