Steven C. Grinnell, Principal

With over 30 years of experience, Steven C. Grinnell has created memorable projects for virtually all major retail tenants in the country. Steve began his career in the early 1980's, developing apartment complexes, office condominiums, office buildings and residential projects in Austin, Texas. By the mid-80's, he began specializing in retail. Steve relocated to Atlanta, GA in 1987, and served as president of the tenant representation division (brokerage arm) of  New Market Development Company (later known as Cousins MarketCenters).

In 1992, Steve formed Merchants Resource Realty, Inc. (a sister company to Merchants Holding Company) and in 1995, Steve as president of Merchants Resource Realty (the site selection, development and leasing arm of the venture)  and Stan Thomas of Thomas Enterprises in Atlanta, GA, (the leasing and marketing arm of the venture), co-developed more than 15 million square feet of anchor-oriented properties - always delivering quality space on time and within budget.

Returning to Texas in 2003, Steve as the principal of Merchants Holding Company developed several new projects in Texas, Georgia, Tennessee and Arkansas. Through Merchants Holding Company and Merchants Resource Realty, Steve has worked with the following tenants in the listed respective markets:
