The group of TLC businesses operated by the Coryell family have joined together under a new umbrella company.
Coryell Collaborative Group on March 1 became the parent company of five business units, said Public Relations Coordinator Liv Young.
“It’s all Coryell family-owned businesses,” she said. “We’ve worked together over the past few years, but this really brings them all under one umbrella.”
The business units are:
• TLC Properties Inc., the original company launched 31 years ago;
• TLC Property Realty LLC, which brokers new land acquisitions and connects properties with third-party operators;
• Good Deal Development LLC, a company created last year that handles preconstruction work, such as site identification, permitting, financing and zoning;
• Team C Construction LLC, a general contracting firm; and
• Coryell Enterprises Inc., which conducts painting, carpet cleaning, drywall and finishing services.
With the restructuring, Jessi Beauchamp was promoted to chief operations officer from her previous role as director of operations. Sam M. Coryell remains president, with his father Sam E. Coryell continuing as a board member and brother Dan Coryell leading TLC Property Realty. Additionally, the company moved staff around so there’s now a creative department assisting all of the business units, Young said. No new hires were made as part of the process, she added.
Current Coryell Collaborative Group projects include the $10.8 million mixed-use development Cambium, comprising multifamily units and 9,000 square feet of office space at 3811 S. Weller Ave. It’s slated for completion in July, Young said.
TLC Properties’ website lists 23 multifamily apartment communities, comprising 3,538 units, with another 1,195 units on the way by 2020.
