Our development approach considers x, y, and z in order to maximize value in urban neighborhoods.
GOLDEN HILL San Diego, CA
Agora Partners and McNamara Real Estate Ventures are developing a 15-unit townhome community located at a prime corner in the Golden Hill neighborhood. The site is a land assemblage with expired entitlements situated at the crown of a hill. Utilizing a contemporary aesthetic and sustainability features, the new homes capitalize on views of Downtown San Diego, San Diego Bay and the mountains. Individual units include garages, home offices and open floor plans to complement extensive outdoor areas and an active streetfront. The development continues the resurgence of the dynamic Golden Hill neighborhood.
CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY Northridge, CA
Symphony Development and Agora Partners acquired a leased 12,500-square-foot postal facility on 1.54 acres located one block from the 350-acre California State University - Northridge (CSUN) campus. As the third-largest public university in the state, the university’s master development plan forecasts an annual growth rate of more than 1 percent annually over the next 20 years, underpinning the need for new development in the area to meet this growing demographic. The site's substantial frontage on Reseda Boulevard, dense infill location, existing income stream and proximity to CSUN positions the property to benefit from strong economic drivers and an overall lack of retail and housing amenities.
STARLAND DESIGN DISTRICT Savannah, GA
Acting on behalf of a private family office, Agora Partners led the acquisition, asset management and development strategy for a series of properties purchased from an institutional fund partnership. The subject property required complex lease re-negotiations and coordination with municipal agencies regarding tenancy and options for redevelopment. Ongoing asset management by Agora Partners aims to capitalize on numerous opportunities for development, recapitalization, disposition and operating efficiencies. The mix of existing residential and commercial assets, as well as vacant land, is currently in the planning and design process.
WEST VIEW/ACRA HOLDINGS, Los Angeles, CA
A multi-faceted infill land acquisition strategy was overseen and executed by Agora Partners on behalf of an investment partnership comprising local and out-of-state investors. With ACRA Holdings, Agora Partners completed the initial acquisition of a keystone parcel located within close proximity to a planned transit station. Through multiple stakeholder partnerships and design and financing processes, Agora Partners was instrumental in orchestrating a multi-owner, multi-parcel land assemblage while providing asset management and pre-development oversight. The assembled property was sold to a private buyer in early 2014.
