Our Culture



It starts with the people and each of our team members is vital to our overall success. We are intentional about building relationships among our team members through a collaborative environment, and opportunities away from the office for team building, education and brainstorming.

Making a Difference

We highly value the individual talents and passion of our team members and we encourage them to use these gifts to invest in organizations they are passionate about. Our team members are provided one day every month to volunteer with a charitable organization and make a difference.


Initiatives such as MidwayU, our internal education platform, and MBARK, our onboarding program, serve as important foundational elements for future growth. As an additional opportunity to educate team members, we take time away from the office to visit projects throughout the year, and collaborate during biannual company meetings.

Our History

Houston-based Midway is a privately owned, fully integrated real estate development and investment firm that has provided the highest level of quality, service and value to our clients and investors for more than 50 years. Our portfolio of projects completed and/or underway consists of approximately 45 million square feet of properties ranging from mixed-used destinations, office, industrial facilities, and master-planned residential communities. Midway continues to develop projects of distinction, aesthetic relevance and enduring value for our investors, our clients, and the people who live, work, and thrive in the environments we create.

Founding Partner

Jim Moran was a real estate hall of famer, a world-class rowing marathoner, a Vince Lombardi footballer, a director of too many boards to list and a U.S. Navy serviceman.

Jim's word and his great character were his reputation and his expressed wish was to die in his office, at 90 years of age, still actively making real estate deals. Jim fell short of his goal, not because he lost the battle with his illness, but as he put it, he ran out of time. Jim's spirit, his values, and his reputation are central to every conversation Midway conducts.
