Creating Value. Enhancing Communities.
We are dedicated to enhancing and supporting communities through real estate, infrastructure and credit. Before initiating an urban project, we identify transitional and thriving communities that are likely to benefit from our work and create value for our partners and co-investors. Next, we implement our distinctive five-point community qualification process.
Urban Community Qualification Process
Community qualification takes between six months and five years. The process combines quantitative expertise, such as demographic data and historical analysis, with a qualitative, on-the-ground understanding of a community’s needs and potential.
As part of our process, we consider five essential criteria:
- Improving market dynamics
- Public commitment to improving the community
- Private investment
- Areas underserved by real estate and infrastructure
- Potential for at least $100 million of opportunistic equity investments within five years
Our community qualification process helps ensure that our work makes a positive difference in communities while creating value for our stakeholders.
