At Legacy Builders & Development, we are a construction company founded on honesty, integrity, and hard work.

We put in the work to make your dream property in Southern California a reality.


Our Legacy

  • Licensed in California for over 20 years, Chris Bowen, one of the founding partners and license holder, has been involved in construction since the age of 15. Like his father before him, his grandfather started his own successful construction company in 1934. Today we continue to operate like the two generations before us: with a sense of honesty and integrity, and with the never ending urge to always try to do the right thing. Rest assured, as a third-generation contractor, we still strive for excellence in an ever-changing market.

The three owners of Legacy Builders and Development have over 55 years of combined construction/real estate experience.

He has owned and operated more than 2 million square feet of retail, office and industrial real estate. He has a perspective on what is important to asset owners and managers. He is effective at communicating with owners, project managers and tenants. His primary goal, with any project, is to get it completed on time and budget and with minimal disruption to tenants while providing the highest quality of workmanship.

Christopher R. Bowen

As a third generation contractor, Chris brings a vast amount of knowledge and expertise to the construction industry from the ground up. Construction has been a family tradition since 1934 when Chris’s grandfather started a successful construction company in Oklahoma. Chris started his career at the age of 15 when he started working for his dad’s brick laying crew in Oklahoma. After moving to California in 1997, Chris quickly expanded his knowledge by working for a couple of companies before starting his own successful construction company in 1999. Over the last 25 years, Chris has specialized in kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels, tenant improvements, as well as additions and custom homes. Chris still believes in the core values that his father and grandfather brought to the industry: “The work you do is a reflection of who you are.”
