A different kind of development company.

Too often, real estate development can lose sight of the people and experiences that create a sense of place and attachment. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Blue Flag Development blurs the line between residential and hospitality. We break the mold by tying guest and owner experiences to a sense of community, and believe that the world's most valuable spaces are a reflection of a lasting sense of place.

We specialize in designing places that resonate.

We believe aspirational real estate will define the future. The places we create reflect an evolution in development; with investment, hospitality, real estate, construction, and world-class design expertise working in unison to create limitless value.

We don't design spaces, we deliver a way of living.
