IRVA Development and partners is a rapidly growing real estate development firm specializing in boutique residential, commercial, and opportunistic value-add projects. We pride ourselves on our strong relationships within The Greater Salt Lake area, on understanding local building codes, and on our goal to improve our State by developing remarkable communities.


Our team at IRVA is always looking for strategic capital partners (GP/LP/JV). The Principals of this company have a deep understanding of the market, having $400 million in assets under managment (2022).


We like to find properties with a good underlying story. Our core focus is to meet all investment objectives, and we fulfill that process A-Z.
