About Us

Asana Partners is a real estate investment company that creates value by acquiring, enhancing, and operating distinctive mixed-use and retail properties in dynamic urban markets in the United States.

Our company’s balanced approach optimizes long-term risk-adjusted returns.

We have deep experience and expertise in:

Retail Strategy

Having worked together on hundreds of successful properties across economic cycles and changing consumer environments, we understand mixed-use and retail real estate. We know that sought-after neighborhoods feature meaningful, authentic retail and meet the 24-hour demands of the creative office and residential populations. This means investing in the most dynamic markets in the United States and targeting high-quality properties that will benefit from our hands-on approach.

Acquisitions and Dispositions

Our recent experience includes the execution of approximately $6 billion of mixed-use and retail acquisitions and approximately $2 billion of dispositions. We have developed deep relationships across the retail, office, and residential real estate industry that are critical to the identification and execution of investment opportunities.

Asset Management

Value creation requires a high-performance asset management team leveraging unmatched experience, information management systems, real-time analytics, and a time-tested risk management framework. Our discipline is underpinned by an operations-oriented approach, industry-leading financial expertise, and a long-term value creation philosophy.

Merchandising and Leasing

We leverage our relationships and experience to merchandise our real estate with a thoughtful mix of best-in-class local, regional, and national retailers. When paired with our office and residential tenants, these retailers drive consumer traffic, sales, base rents, and net operating income. Our extensive retailer network and strong relationships provide us insight into retailer business strategies including expansions, contractions, and anticipated renewals.

Repositioning and Redevelopment

Our recent experience includes the execution of more than $1 billion of mixed-use and retail driven redevelopments and developments, adding to our expertise in site selection, design, risk assessment, entitlement, budgeting, contracting, and tax increment financing.

Capital Markets and Balance Sheet Management

We have a long-standing commitment to transparency and integrity. Relationship development, capital availability, diversification, and flexibility are key to our approach. As a result, we have deep institutional capital relationships and are focused on cost-of-capital and balance sheet structure optimization. With dozens of institutional investors, lenders, and partners, we have executed on more than $10 billion of financing transactions.

Risk Identification and Mitigation

Our entrepreneurial spirit is supported by a strong institutional risk management foundation. We have extensive experience with risk mitigation, which includes recruiting/hiring decisions, management oversight, investment decisions, value creation strategy, portfolio diversification, balance sheet optimization, and insurance.

Sustainability

We consider sustainability a key driver of value in commercial real estate. Our experience includes mitigating portfolio-wide energy and water consumption, employing wind, solar, and waste management programs, developing LEED-certified buildings, and increasing the number of LEED-trained associates.
