Charlie Woolley is the founding principal and president of St. Charles Town Company. After nearly a decade as a history museum director, Charlie began his commercial real estate career in 1985 and went on to found St. Charles in 1993. Inspired to create compelling destinations that preserve history while supporting communities well into the future, together he and the St. Charles team have completed over 50 development projects valued at nearly $1 billion.
Charlie’s first experiences in real estate were multifamily historic preservation projects in Denver’s emerging neighborhoods. Compelled by historic buildings in what was once Denver’s industrial core, Charlie started buying, selling, leasing and developing timber and brick warehouses in the Lower Downtown (LoDo) neighborhood.
Under Charlie’s leadership, St. Charles Town Company has become not only one of the most active developers of affordable housing in the Denver metro area, but also a prominent champion of historic preservation and neighborhood infill projects.
Charlie is actively involved in the community, serving as a trustee for both The Denver Botanic Gardens and History Colorado, advocating on behalf of historic preservation, arts, and community service non-profit organizations.
Charlie holds an MBA from the University of Denver and a B.A. in city planning from the University of Massachusetts.
