Our Story

Building relationships and value through community

Since our founding in 2000, we’ve been on a mission to deliver solid, long-term returns on investment for our clients – hardworking people whose livelihoods and futures depend on us.

Through our honed, build-to-core strategy, we seek to transform communities through development and redevelopment projects across the U.S.– to make them more connected, sustainable, vibrant, and prosperous – by putting the skills and spirits of local people to work, creating diverse, technologically advanced assets, and by providing a range of flexible financing solutions, such as preferred equity, mezzanine debt, senior debt, construction loans and credit enhancements. Our relationships with established developers give us opportunities to play a role in projects nationwide, while also utilizing our development subsidiary’s expertise to develop projects of our own.

We take a patient, long-term investment view, choosing to develop and re-develop properties at various points in the real estate cycle to deliver quality construction – always striving to create value for clients and communities.
