What We Do

In 1979 Steve Bodner dove into the commercial real estate business by developing retail centers and multifamily properties. After a calculated shift in the 1990s, SC Bodner Company now exclusively focuses on the development of best-in-class multifamily communities across the Midwest, Southwest, and Southeast regions. Through our commercial real estate expertise, unparalleled research inspired design, and resident-centered approach to property management, we raise the bar by creating exemplary experiences for discerning residents and their guests.


Initially founded nearly 100 years ago in 1924 by Solomon C. Bodner, SC Bodner Company got its start by building many of the Indianapolis area’s finest homes, office buildings, and apartment communities leading a local surge of post-World War II construction activity. Robert Bodner joined the family business in 1950 and continued his father’s legacy building distinctive homes, office buildings, and upscale apartment communities. Today’s business model draws on its predecessor’s nearly centuries worth of entrepreneurialism, passion for the industry, creativity, and management expertise to successfully deliver results to the stakeholders, residents, employees, and cities we work with.
