ABOUT

WHO WE ARE

We are a master developer specializing in turnkey solutions for uniquely complex projects both in the private sector and through Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).

WHAT WE DO

We develop and manage assets, primarily real estate. Projects cover a broad spectrum of size and scope, including public infrastructure, justice, health, city center revitalizations, hospitality, retail, office, industrial, and master planned communities.

 

PHILOSOPHY

Our work is based on Ingenuity, Stewardship, Agility, and Collaboration.

PROCESS

Through our Discover-Develop-Deploy™ process, we bring strategic insight, assemble best-in-class teams, and optimize financing to reach successful outcomes.

TRACK RECORD

Three decades of substantial value creation to investors and communities.

 

PHILOSOPHY

Ingenuity

We crack tough nuts—typically, nuts others have discarded as too tough. We use our creativity and experience to get to the crux of the challenge, develop a plan, and execute that plan. The result: Value creation!

 

Stewardship

We take our work seriously and believe in making any community better because of our work. We treat the assets we develop and manage as in a sacred trust. We believe in the creation of value for all stakeholders in our projects and being good stewards of the environment.

 

Agility

We are flexible and adaptable. We sift through deals quickly. When we find the right deal, we act decisively. We deploy resources deliberately. Each project is done with particular care to maximize value creation.

 

Collaboration

We deploy best-in-class teams to program, design, engineer, construct, and manage projects and assets. We work cooperatively with the municipalities and states where we operate and attempt to create value to all stakeholders in our projects.
