A vertically integrated owner, operator and manager
Manhattan West Real Estate aims to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns while simultaneously creating a positive impact for the tenants and residents.
What We Do
Based in Los Angeles, Manhattan West Real Estate is uniquely positioned as a vertically integrated owner, operator and manager of multifamily and industrial properties. We aim to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors while simultaneously creating a positive impact for the tenants and residents of our buildings. Our unique strategy is focused on executing value-add and opportunistic investments in supply-constrained, employment-rich markets in the Western U.S., with a particular focus on Southern California.
With almost two decades of experience, our principals have significant hands-on experience across all product types and all phases of the development cycle. We leverage our relationships with local brokers, contractors, engineers, and architects to deliver the best product for our investors and tenants. Our hands-on experience with the design and construction of institutionally sized real estate assets provides a competitive advantage over others who lack this experience.
Where We Invest
Our portfolio consists of urban infill apartments, each centrally located with convenient access to employment.
We target light industrial properties, ideally with dock-high loading and sufficient clear height to attract the highest quality tenants.
We act as sponsors only and operate all properties with in-house property management, asset management, and accounting. This creates financial transparency for the benefit of our tenants and investors.
We utilize an institutional-quality due diligence process to scrutinize every deal, including a proprietary 150-point checklist we use to make sure we consider and mitigate all potential risk factors of each transaction.
Our principals have significant hands-on experience across all product types and all phases of the development cycle. In particular, Mr. Norvell’s 18-year career spent entirely as an owner/operator is unrivaled in terms of total volume. Mr. Norvell has been a part of over $6 billion of real estate acquisition and development projects in over 125 separate transactions.
We bring local market knowledge curated over an entire lifetime living in Los Angeles. Not only did our real estate team grow up in Los Angeles, we have deep connections within the local real estate community through the USC alumni network that allows us to generate unique investment opportunities that most groups in Los Angeles cannot access.
The Real Estate team focuses on multifamily and industrial investments. Returns for these product types are expected to outperform all others given increasing tenant demand post-COVID. Within these product types we aim for higher yielding value-add and opportunistic strategies where we can leverage our extensive development and operational expertise.
