History

Hadley Properties has its roots in the structural engineering firm of Hadley and Hadley, which specialized in innovative and cost-effective building and bridge design following World War II. Its principals were Homer and Richard Hadley, father and son.

Homer Hadley was a brilliant structural engineer with decades of consulting experience in concrete construction. He is best known for proposing the idea of a floating concrete pontoon structure to bridge across Lake Washington, and the most recent I-90 bridge from Seattle to Mercer Island is named in his honor. Richard Hadley joined his father in business with Summa Cum Laude degrees in Mechanical and Structural Engineering, as well as a Ph.D. in business from the University of Washington.

Together, they formed Hadley Properties in 1952 to pursue real estate ventures. Over the succeeding decades, with Richard’s vision, the firm grew to develop, own and manage a wide variety of property types, including office and industrial buildings, hotels, timeshares, apartments, residential land development and resort communities.

Today, Hadley Properties, under third generation leadership of siblings Robert and Lisa Hadley, has the capability to take projects from inception through design, financing, development, leasing and management. With in-house specialists in architecture, engineering, financial analysis, construction, marketing, leasing and property management, Hadley Properties consistently delivers high quality, successful projects.
