The Garcia Companies operates with fresh ideas, unique collaborations, and new and creative ways of approaching a challenge. An entrepreneurial business with the ability to undertake and complete large and complex initiatives, our ability and willingness to rely on our years of diverse expertise while also reaching out to a vast and ever-growing circle of experts, partners, and team members sets us apart.
We continue a relentless search for the best and brightest ideas and have developed a sound basis for evaluating and placing those ideas into action.
We often go where the needs take us. The need for renewable, sustainable and accessible energy led us to participate in research, advocacy and development of solar energy facilities in the state of Florida. As the water crisis intensified surrounding the Everglades, we explored the best and safest methods to provide solutions for water conservation. And as the beaches eroded on both Florida coastlines causing significant environmental damage, we discovered and mined high quality sand on our Hendry County property that is now providing much needed relief to the state.
At The Garcia Companies, we believe that true innovation comes from an openness to new ideas, a willingness to reach out, and an ability to evaluate and execute on the information received.
Of course, challenges often follow risks. In 2013, we, along with many others, saw a need for a major entertainment venue in Virginia Beach. We created a unique, privately funded arena plan that generated extensive enthusiasm and community support. Along with our team of highly qualified experts, we carried the project through the significant design phase, closed the financing with largest bank in the country, and had an operating agreement in place with a premier venue operator and entertainment promoter, but the City negated our contract at the last moment. We remain gratified by the creative vision and solutions our team devised and implemented, and remain hopeful the region will one day fulfill the well-documented need for a large sports and entertainment venue.
