Vital About Us

Who we are

Vital Building & Enterprises, Inc., under the direction of Vitale, concentrates its efforts in the avenues of real estate development in which it is currently involved, including construction and management of all projects. We operate our projects with a team of qualified Superintendents, Foreman, Project Managers, and crew as needed for each project. We are very serious about our work, diligent, precise and concerned with quality control, and end product.

Vital Building & Enterprises, Inc. holds both an A (General Engineering) & B (General Contracting) license. We have completed numerous projects from complete site development through to turnkey, finished end user product. Vital Building & Enterprises, Inc. is a speculative real estate development, as well as Commercial/Residential Construction Company.  We also offer Real Estate Development & Construction Services.

Vital Building has also completed the TI Build-Out of various office spaces, the complete TI of a Sylvan Learning Center School, and a Dentist office, to name just a few.


We typically focus on raw land development, from the ground up, that is the design of subdivisions, including the streets, lots, and on/off site improvements necessary to sustain the Subdivision. Our projects include a combination of both commercial, residential, and residential mixed use developments.

Our goal is that local cities use our projects as examples of medium-high density developments that not only work well within the community, but also represent the proper style and character of each city respectively. Additionally, we engage in larger Land Entitlement/Subdivision developments, for sale either at tentative map or final map completion. A few of these recent examples of spec developments, as well as other Residential and Commercial projects are described below:
