Owner of Peregrine Company, Tom T. Huff
The bulk of what Peregrine Company is today started as a hobby for our owner, Tom Huff. Born and raised in Kalamazoo, he witnessed the decline of the city’s downtown and desired to rejuvenate the area. After establishing a career as an attorney, Tom turned his passion for real estate into a way to spur economic development in the area with the creation of Peregrine Company.
He pioneered the creation of loft apartments in downtown Kalamazoo, the first of which was at 228 E. Michigan Avenue above the Golden Needle Shop. Tom’s innovative thinking also led to the first instance of underground parking below residential and commercial buildings in downtown Kalamazoo.
More than 40 years later, Tom is still at the helm of Peregrine Company as Owner in addition to being a practicing attorney and a community leader.
