At our core, we are driven by a powerful aspiration: that every person in America has access to safe, dignified and sustainable housing and working spaces. We were founded in 2017 with a deep commitment to investing in communities where individuals and families can thrive, connect with others, engage in meaningful work and achieve their full potential. Through our unwavering commitment to excellence and our focus on sustainability, we aim to create a brighter future for generations to come.
We foster partnerships and collaborations with proven real estate operators that share our vision and invest alongside them to execute business strategies that identify and modernize undervalued assets with positive impact potential. We target diverse communities with strong fundamentals and focus on multi-family housing, industrial and adaptive reuse projects in workforce markets across the country. Our investments include equity, preferred equity and debt instruments.
At New Standard Ventures, we harness the power of data analytics, rigorous due diligence, industry relationships and experience to invest in the right combination of partners, properties and communities throughout the real estate cycle to deliver meaningful risk adjusted returns.
