The Ainbinder Company

The Ainbinder Company

The Ainbinder Company is a Houston-based real estate firm specializing in the acquisition, development and redevelopment of retail real estate throughout the United States. The principals of the Company are Michael Ainbinder and Bart Duckworth. The Company enjoys a reputation with retailers, lenders and the real estate community at large as a highly respected shopping center developer with the ability and expertise to perform. The Company is small by design, allowing the principals to stay actively involved in all facets of the development process. While positioning itself as a “boutique” firm, the Company has the financial resources, experience and flexibility to develop projects that range in size from free standing build-to-suits to drug store-anchored neighborhood centers, grocery-anchored community centers, big box power centers and mixed-use lifestyle projects.

Messrs. Ainbinder and Duckworth have been involved in the development of over 3 million square feet of shopping centers with a value exceeding $350 million. The Company has successfully negotiated transactions with retailers such as HEB Grocery Co., Albertson’s, Border’s Books, Kroger, Kmart, Barnes & Noble, T.J. Maxx, Best Buy, OfficeMax, Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Just for Feet, Sears, Petco, Home Depot, Super Crown Books, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Academy Sports & Outdoors, Gander Mountain Sports, Ulta Beauty, LA Fitness, Dollar Tree, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, Landry’s Restaurants, Starbucks, Auto Zone, Burger King, JP Morgan Chase Bank, Whataburger, Carter’s, Whole Foods, Garden Ridge and Chick Fil-A.
