James C. Gaither, Jr.

Managing Partner | Hanover Page Mill Associates, L.P.

The central theme of Jim’s career is ecological and economic integration to create high performance projects. Jim recently completed construction of a 90,000 SF Net-Zero-Electric, multi-tenant commercial office building at 1400 Page Mill Road in the Stanford Research Park of Palo Alto, California. In 2016 the building received LEED Platinum from the US Green Building Council; a Green Project Award from the Silicon Valley Business Journal; and the Sustainable Development of the Year award from the Leading European Architects Forum. The building is fully leased and 100% occupied as of January 2017.

Prior to commercial real estate, Jim worked for 16 years in the development of nature preserves. He founded the Northern Sierra Project for The Nature Conservancy, and has advanced conservation solutions on thousands of acres of protected lands and waters. Flagship projects include the 2,323-acre Independence Lake Preserve near Truckee, California, and the 7,472-acre Headwaters Forest Reserve near Eureka, California.

Jim earned his PhD in Ecology from the University of California at Davis, and his MS and BS in the Biological Sciences from Stanford University.
