Consistent success through market cycles demands strategic discipline. We uncover opportunities in developed cities by targeting submarkets catering to innovation, growth, and high quality of life. For institutional direct investors, our projects consistently achieve yields far exceeding prevailing stabilized cap rates for link-kind assets.

Through two decades of turbulent markets, our five fully invested funds averaged a 1.8x gross equity multiple and a 21.5% gross property IRR.

Now on our sixth institutional investment fund, we have committed over $794 million of private and institutional capital to 39 investments, representing more than $6.8 billion of real estate.

Together, these funds have enabled the development or repositioning of 32 million square feet of office space, 8 million square feet of urban mixed-use projects, and the construction of 4,436 new residential units.
