Westside is a diversified real estate investment holding firm with a proven track record in real estate private equity investments, construction & development management and venture capital investments. We focus on defensive, value-added investing in traditional real estate asset classes, value focused cost-adjusted construction management and early stage venture capital investing in businesses strategically positioned along the real estate value chain.
We acquire cash-flowing properties at discounts to replacement costs. We improve them through hands-on management and targeted capital initiatives. Our efforts seek to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for the company across cycles and over the long term. Westsides’ real estate portfolio allocations within asset classes, capital structures and markets shift based on macro-economic considerations.
At Westside, we focus on people, relationships and credibility. We care about our reputation in the marketplace. We cherish discipline and make responsible decisions as humans, professionals and investors.
Teamwork is at the center of our operation and the catalyst for competitive advantage. Together, we tackle each of our projects with a customized approach that reflects the ambitious performance standards our stakeholders expect.
We conduct ourselves with integrity in everything we do. Our reputation — as the nation’s leading real estate firm — is paramount. As a learning organization, we are self-critical — acknowledging our mistakes and always trying to learn from them.
We use accountability and measurement as our north star – demanding the best of ourselves and the firm as a whole. Our positions are fueled by unmatched qualitative and quantitative analysis giving ourselves firmer footing to take a stand in any phase of negotiation.
We challenge convention to unlock innovation: delivering bold insights, introducing new profitability frameworks, and remaining skeptical of “the way things are done”. With the credibility of a financial enterprise and agility of a lean entrepreneurial organization, we leverage big ideas in small timelines.
