First Bristol Corporation

Property Developer

Since its founding 35 years ago by President James J. Karam, First Bristol Corporation has developed in excess of 4 million square feet of retail, commercial, residential and hotel properties. This highly successful real estate development and management firm spans generations, as Vice Presidents James M. Karam and Jeffrey T. Karam work alongside their father in directing day-to-day operations.

First Bristol has developed high-quality retail shopping centers, office buildings and hotels throughout the Northeast. Partnerships include Walmart, Stop & Shop, CVS-anchored shopping centers, Bank of America and Traveler's Insurance Company, many of the largest and most successful nationally recognized brands. The firm is also a leading provider of Hilton and Marriott hotels.

First Bristol has achieved recognition for its contribution to three Massachusetts award-winning Historic Residential Rehabilitation projects: Lafayette Place, The Highlands and The Hudner Building.  In addition, Hilton Worldwide bestowed "Best National Conversion” awards to the Norwood Hampton Inn & Suites in Norwood, MA in 2006 and the Hampton Inn & Suites Providence (RI) Downtown in 2011, the only New England project so honored that year for its preservation of a historic building.

At First Bristol Corporation, we know that a successful development is a dynamic process that begins with a careful plan based on project goals, economic projections and client needs. Whether First Bristol is building or managing a development or assisting in the development and execution of a project, you are assured of a strong and proven executive team at the helm. With a core value of timeless commitment to excellence, this nationally recognized industry leader continues its upward trajectory today.

First Bristol Corporation is proficient in the application of creative and professional land-use concepts. In addition to innovative thinking relating to design layout and construction, FBC knows that the essentials for successful development projects come down to a handful of vital elements.
