Anna Deans
VP – Investment & Development
Midway Companies

As Vice President, Investment and Development for Midway, Anna manages the concept development, design and delivery of new construction projects.

With a majority of her experience in mixed-use development, Anna provides tremendous insight and perspective to large, complex projects. Her emphasis and expertise lie within efficiency of design, functionality, and project management. Her passion is to collaborate and develop the initial vision for a project while understanding the implications of cost, constructability, phasing, project constraints and requirements to make the concept a reality.

As Vice President and Investment Manager, one of Deans’ primary focuses is Midway’s East River project, 150 acres of carefully designed, multi-phase, mixed-use development that will transform Houston’s waterfront east of Downtown into a new economic center. Deans oversees all commercial and multifamily development for East River, from inception to delivery of the vertical, to ensure the entirety of the project is aligned with Midway’s investment strategy.

Prior to joining Midway, Anna developed mixed-use properties for Thor Equities and earlier in her career was a design architect for Gensler. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Texas, Austin and is a LEED accredited licensed architect in the state of Texas.
