Patrick Lucas, President of Lucas Development Company, pushes the boundaries and breaks the stereotype of the average property developer. Not limiting himself to one area of new construction or development, Lucas specializes in all the aspects of his projects from start to finish, including the initial concept, land acquisition, land use approvals, financing, arranging the site surveying, engineering, architectural, construction contracts, construction management and marketing of the project. Lucas is very hands on in all aspects and is therefore able to make changes if the circumstances require. Experienced and tested over the course of past booming and struggling markets, Lucas is a proven developer in the Portland Metro area.
John “Patrick” Lucas received his Bachelor of Science in Economics from Willamette University. He also studied “special economic zones” in China. Lucas began his development career in residential housing developments and progressed to commercial and mixed use developments. He was the co-founder of a leading senior housing company that managed retirement, assisted living and memory care facilities throughout the United States.
Vision and Direction
Ahead of the times, Lucas has had a history of being ahead of the market curve in his developments. With careful planning and research on each project, Lucas has developed a reputation for his commitment to seeing each project through while adapting to changes in the market when the need arises.
Realizing that the decisions of today shape and create our tomorrow, Patrick Lucas is actively involved in the communities that he develops in. He was a member of the Sherwood Urban Renewal Planning Committee where he helped direct the investment of nearly 40 million dollars for the City’s urban renewal efforts, including new streetscapes, City Library, City Hall, and the general beautification of the heart of the city to encourage new development. Lucas purchased and did extensive environmental remediation on an abandoned Leather Tannery and Battery Manufacturing site. He served on the St. Francis School oversite committee and helped build a new K-8 grade school, as well as starting the first annual St Francis School Auction to help keep tuition costs down for families.
