Our History

McGuire Development Company has roots going back to 1960 when Frank McGuire began pursuing real estate development following his founding of the well-known electrical contracting firm, Industrial Power & Light (IPL). Under his oversight, IPL grew to be the largest electrical contractor in Western New York, until it was sold in 1990. From the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s, McGuire developed a number of real estate projects ranging from residential to commercial to hospitality in both New York State and Florida.

In 2005, after spending nearly 40 years in one of our sister business lines, perfecting the approach to providing quality care to patients in The McGuire Group’s seven nationally-ranked skilled nursing facilities, Jim McGuire and Jim Dentinger founded McGuire Development Company and reinvigorated the real estate development arm of the business. McGuire Development was built upon the concepts of trust, transparency and an open book and competitive bidding processes. Our signature transparent process has allowed us to become one of the most respected and sought-after development partners in Western New York.

We are proud to be part of the recent renaissance in the development of Downtown Buffalo and our waterfront, and look forward to our region’s continued success.
