Acquisitions and Dispositions

Our experience includes the execution of more than $10 billion of neighborhood mixed-use and  retail acquisitions and dispositions. We have developed deep relationships with sellers, buyers, and potential partners across the United States that are critical to the identification and execution of investment opportunities. 

Deal Structuring

Our investment sourcing capabilities include the structuring of joint ventures, forward take-out transactions, preferred equity or mezzanine financings, and debt acquisitions. We have developed deep relationships with the most blue-chip developers of multi-family and creative office properties throughout the United States.

Environmental, Social, & Governance

We consider ESG a key driver of value and risk management in commercial real estate investing. Our experience includes preserving and redeveloping existing buildings, 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.  We actively foster an environment of diversity, equality, and inclusion that reflects our values.

Leasing Strategy & Tenant Mix Optimization

We leverage our relationships and experience to activate our real estate with a thoughtful mix of best-in-class retail, service, creative office, and residential users. These synergistic tenants drive consumer traffic, sales, and net operating income. Our extensive broker network and strong national tenant relationships provide us insight into prospective tenant business and real estate strategies.

Redevelopment & Densification

Our experience includes the execution of more than $2 billion of neighborhood mixed-use and  retail redevelopments and developments across the United States, adding to our expertise in site selection, design, risk assessment, entitlement, budgeting, contracting, and construction management.

Asset & Property 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.
