About


Thomas Development Co., a Boise, Idaho based real estate development company, was founded in 1990 by Thomas C. Mannschreck. It has grown to become one of the Northwest’s leading multifamily real estate developers and has an expanding portfolio of developed and renovated commercial properties.

Under the innovative direction of our company principals, Tom Mannschreck and Barbara Mannschreck, the company has developed over 4,000 apartment homes.

Our success lies with our people and is attributed to a management team that offers forward-thinking expertise, site and acquisition investment analysis, a deep knowledge of all aspects of affordable housing and financing for our apartment communities, and land-use planning. We do this with a commitment to superior development and strategic management of our assets.

We are proud to distinguish ourselves in many ways, but the most proactive and promising is our pledge to incorporate energy efficient, environmentally conscious, and highly durable design, construction, and practices into all of our new and renovated buildings. The result is a value-enhanced quality of life for our developments, our residents and improved marketability.

We developed the first apartment community in Idaho to achieve United States Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership and Environmental Design (LEED) for Homes Platinum Certification for a multifamily development. Our last six new apartment communities have achieved USGBC LEED for Homes Platinum Certification. The importance of incorporating sustainable building practices is a central core value.

We began developing apartments and commercial properties in 1990. Without exception, our commitment and follow-through have been rewarded by the communities we serve. We have been warmly welcomed back in each of these communities when subsequent developments have been proposed.
