To us, discipline goes beyond budgeting and due diligence. It’s the rigor of our work that enables us to reach our goals. We keep our attention on the market, continually interpreting and applying market insights to everything we do. We determine the right metrics – and then adhere to them as we evaluate design, potential strategic partners and financing strategies. Taking this reality-based investment approach allows us to maximize quality, functionality and value. It’s this mindset, matched with a set of financial capabilities that together generate the highest and best use for a site – which is ultimately reflected in the return.
Every project is specific, and building the right team on every project is critical to its success. The people who surround us, personally and professionally, are a reflection of who we are and what we value. We are deliberate in our partner choices, and commit with confidence when we find the right team and fit. We value integrity, accountability and transparency in our projects and in our partners.
Our vision of place revolves increasingly around human scale. We create places designed to make people want to stay in them. Each person’s experience is impacted by everything around them – from the height of a light fixture or ceiling to the width of a sidewalk. We look at outdoor space, differentiation, accessibility and comfort. We look for where we can create wonder, and still have optimal usability and utility. We consider these filters as we develop the design, vision and use, and as we evaluate the budget and financing to allow the best design to be realized. This approach maximizes quality, functionality and value in every project.
