Because You Want to Create Something Amazing

When experience counts, look to Cincinnati’s most trusted developer

After More Than A Century...

of work as developers, we’ve honed our craft and know where projects can go astray. Our clients rely on the Thomas J. Ackermann Company to be responsive, fully transparent and excellent communicators.


While those less experienced may flounder due to poor follow-through or financial issues, our team carefully builds projects on solid investments, thorough understanding of public and private funding and a commitment to building consensus and good will.

Much of our success comes from decades of nurturing relationships with financial backers, landowners, municipalities, attorneys, consultants, contractors, subcontractors and engineers. In short, we know the movers and shakers and we get the job done.


To stay on the leading edge of building and development, we engage with local home builders associations and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). TJ Ackermann currently serves as president of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati. Our membership in the Urban Land Institute, an invitation-only think tank, gives us unique insight into the industry’s best practices.

Rooted in the Queen City

The branches of our company president TJ Ackermann’s family tree spread out across Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Starting in the 1920s, his grandfather built and developed homes in Bond Hill, Norwood, Amberly Village and Kenwood.


In the 1960s, TJ’s parents created Ackermann Enterprises, a development firm, currently led by his brother. The Thomas J. Ackermann Company launched in 2005 and quickly became known for a creative and collaborative approach to development.    

In the last 20 years, the Thomas J. Ackermann Company has championed CiTiRAMA®, a signature urban home show produced by the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati. In 2020, an Ackermann development, Walworth Junction, hosted the city’s premier home show, HOMEARAMA®. The show received a best home show award from the NAHB.


Today, the Ackermanns are just as committed to shaping Cincinnati for the benefit of both residents and businesses as they were a century ago.
