To better serve their construction clients In 1986 Rudolph-Libbe Companies, a NW Ohio regional general contractor, created a wholly owned real estate development company and property management firm called Vista Development Company . In 2009 Rudolph –Libbe Properties merged with Park West Development, a local family ran real estate investment firm, to from RL West Properties. Park West brought years of shopping center, including grocery anchored, experience to combine with Rudolph-Libbe’s development processes and leasing team. The RLWest Properties strategy was to grow the grocery anchored shopping center development pipeline, single tenant build-to-suite business in NW Ohio and SE Michigan as well as grow our Charlotte area portfolio.
In April 2011 RL West Properties demerged from Park West and Rudolph-Libbe to form RL West of NC to allow the 3 entities to pursue different paths. The sole purpose in creating RL West of NC was to focus on the newly acquired LangTree Lake Norman project and two other smaller projects in the area. Today RL West of NC is a full service property management and development company with a primary geographic focus of the greater Charlotte region. In addition to development services, RL West provides site consulting, entitlement procurement and third party brokerage services. Currently RL West is focusing on its flagship development LangTree Lake Norman. LangTree LKN is a 300 acre mixed-use project located off I-77 at exit 31 in Mooresville, NC.
