Otis & Clark Properties was founded in 1982 by Jim Otis and Clark Amos, two men with different backgrounds who share the same alma mater, Ohio State University. Jim Otis is known by St. Louis football Cardinal fans as the fullback who led the NFC in rushing in 1975 for the Cardiac Cards. Clark Amos is recognized for his proven track record in commercial real estate, including directing site development for Wendy’s in the 1970s, contributing to the restaurant chain’s successful expansion.
These two friends launched their commercial real estate business with the goal of delivering exceptional value, outstanding properties and comprehensive services to clients throughout the St. Louis metro area.
Otis & Clark develops exceptional and distinctive retail, hospitality, office and mixed-use properties throughout the St. Louis metro area. Most are new construction, but many are renovated or repurposed structures. Locations and facilities are chosen to maximize our tenants’ potential for growth based on demographics, market viability, traffic patterns and accessibility to major thoroughfares and interstates.

Understanding the market, identifying the optimal site, and navigating environmental, zoning and permitting challenges are just a few of the reasons why both tenants and investors choose to work with Otis & Clark. They trust us to represent their interests and help them grow their businesses, from the ground up.
