About Us

Creating Connection
It may sound odd using “connection” to describe the business of real estate, but our work isn’t just about property development. It’s about people. Others start with the land, the plan, architecture, or numbers. We start with the people who own the land, their vision and values. We use this understanding to craft a community for people who will live on that land. A profound intrinsic value is passed from generations of owners to generations of residents — a human connection.

Our History

We are built on a legacy of success made possible through the guiding principles of our founder, Charles Daniel in 1934.


Headquartered in Greenville, SC, Daniel Construction grew rapidly through commercial and institutional contracts around the world—often on the basis of a handshake between Mr. Daniel and clients. His philosophy—“Do what you say you will do and provide quality and service beyond what is required”.


While maintaining Mr. Daniel’s way of doing business, the Daniel Corporation was established to provide a real estate development and investment vehicle for Daniel Construction Company.


The company was renamed Daniel International Corporation reflecting its world-wide presence spanning four continents and with over 23,000 employees.


The California-based Fluor Corporation acquired Daniel to become one of the largest engineering and construction companies in the world, Fluor Daniel, a testament to the strength and recognition of the Daniel name.


Senior management acquired the real estate subsidiary from Fluor Daniel. For 30 years Daniel Corporation was then comprised of two operating companies—Daniel Communities and Daniel Commercial.


Daniel Communities transitioned to an independent company focused on masterplanned community, hospitality and resort destination development, management and advisory.


Daniel Communities is privately held by its management and includes over 900 team members overseeing portfolio development and operations, together with select growth initiatives focused predominantly on the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
