About Us

Since 1983, Grapevine’s expertise is forming mutually rewarding public-private partnerships for catalytic urban infill and rural development that maximize the “double bottom line.” The Grapevine companies, founded by James & Leticia Acevedo, have a successful track record in filling the void overlooked in communities of need.


As a family-owned business, looking to build a legacy project, we are committed to providing the resources and talent needed to meet the community vision from beginning to end of the proposed project development.
Grapevine’s mission is to enrich communities overlooked and overdue for revitalization which includes signature mixed-use retail and dining, office and housing, open space, green buildings, educational facilities and performing arts.
Our team brings a broad spectrum of professional expertise which includes real estate development in Arizona and California. Our master land-use planning expertise coupled with our award-winning design partners renders our team unmatched in delivering best practices in designing high-quality projects which include green initiatives from open space to mixed-use transit communities.


Focused on economic development, promoting opportunities for strong economic growth through job creation and job retention, education, housing, net new tax revenues and cleaning up brownfield sites, Grapevine seeks to fill basic voids in urban infill sites and rural areas.


We emphasize a team approach which always includes our city partner and community stakeholders. Our multi-disciplined teams provide creative solutions for public-private structures. As many of our employees have served a large number of their careers in the public sector, we understand both sides of the equation giving us the distinct ability to bridge the gap between the private and public sectors needs.


Our success is established by our team representing the culturally diverse communities in which we live and work. We strive to understand a community’s unique traits to define best, pursue and execute preferred solutions that maximize favorable social, cultural and economic impacts on the community. The Grapevine team is driven by its passion for developing catalytic projects. We look forward to working with you.
