We Leverage Opportunities and Reframe Challenges – Developing Commercial Real Estate for Community Benefit


Real Estate Development

Undertaking and completing successful real estate projects is a complicated process that requires expertise in finance, team management, construction, and ultimately, marketing and facilities operations.  Ventura Partners bring skills and experience in all of these areas, and then we structure projects with an eye toward community ownership for the long-term.   We collaborate with our nonprofit and community partners to ensure that their priorities are served by the bricks and mortar facilities, and that benefits accrue to the local stakeholders.


Property and Asset Management

We provide the tools and administrative services needed to manage a wide range of property types. From mom-and-pop shops to large-scale commercial facilities involving complex co-location and shared space agreements, we have the know-how to manage even the most intricate processes. We focus on maximizing the value of commercial assets, and providing financial and programmatic benefits to our partners.  We bring the organizational tools required to effectively manage properties that support the economic and social activity of the neighborhoods in which we work.



Our long history of working with complex projects and multi-layered financing, has served us well in developing a comprehensive understanding of traditional and new financing opportunities.  We can help to conceptualize innovative combinations of debt, equity and hybrid mechanisms for reaching project goals, and then create the methods for bringing them on board.


Community Benefits

When we approach a project, we evaluate its community returns right alongside its financial returns, and recognize that these are complimentary.  If managed correctly, what is good for the community is good for the bottom line.  This also motivates the development of ownership structures that give our nonprofit partners and members of the community the opportunity for financial returns from neighborhood investment.
