Tom Helmkampf, President

Tom has acted as Managing Partner for several real estate developments in St. Louis, where he developed over $30 million in real estate projects from planning and zoning through construction and occupancy. Tom has extensive expertise in pre-construction work with municipal governments and design professionals, as well as in project management, budgeting, and sub-contractor coordination.

Case Study

The Shoppes at Price Crossing

Tom Helmkampf partnered with Keat Properties to redevelop the high-profile corner of Price Road and Olive Blvd. in Olivette.  This project required the acquisition of 8 individual properties that had different zoning requirements.  All the properties had to be surveyed, buildings had to be demolished and then the consolidated parcel had to go through a Planning and Zoning process which included Public Hearings and City Council approval for a new Planned Development which was the first in Olivette.

Past Project

The Meadows

A new two building office warehouse development in Maryland Heights, MO with a central service court between the two buildings.

Are you interested in investing in Commercial Real Estate or have 1031 money available for reinvestment?

HCS is very active in the local Bi-State Commercial Real Estate Development Market.  We are always on the lookout for undervalued and value-added opportunities especially in the small to midsized warehouse market.  This niche is a key strategy for strong returns as it generally requires lower initial and long-term re-tenanting costs.

  • Existing industrial buildings, preferably built after 1980.
  • Value-added opportunities, determined by a vacancy of 20%+, some curable obsolescence, or poor marketing/dealmaking.
  • Transaction size of $1million - $5 million
  • Single free-standing buildings or portfolios
  • Single and multi-tenant buildings
  • Sale and Lease Back or excess property situations
  • Preferred markets are the St. Louis County Missouri, and SW Illinois
  • Opportunity and Enterprise Zone Properties or other incentives that provide equity partners with additional tax opportunities.
