Innovation & Investment

Every Square foot of opportunity.


They say opportunity isn’t just right place, right time. It’s about seeing things different. Another way. A better way. Even when it’s not obvious—especially when it’s not obvious—we see a difference. Entrepreneurial flexibility, longterm partnerships and a multiple-platform presence promises unique access and, most importantly, value creation.

Our leasing and management services supplement major investments in full-scale development and construction with Covington Realty Partners. Together, we source and select merchant build projects in Central, Midwest and East Coast primary and secondary markets, with an emphasis on stabilized yield on cost. We narrow our focus for build to hold investments in Los Angeles, Denver and Chicago, maintaining more control over selective and creative development.

Affordable Housing

With a severe affordable housing shortage in the US, we’ve created three much needed investment funds with Lakeside Capital Advisors to aid the complex structure of the market. Fewer buyers in the space allows higher cap rates and consistent cash flow. As we continue to fully invest in each fund, we gain access to the largest volume of tax credit properties throughout the US.
