Urban Infill Acquisitions and Development
GTIS’ extensive relationships with both public and private homebuilders across the nation and covers most major homebuilding markets through its investment in approximately 50 projects totaling over 8,000 homes.
The homebuilding projects are frequently acquired as discounted land and homebuilding sites from partners and sellers with liquidity constraints. Business plans require the completion of infrastructure buildout and sale of lots to homebuilders in bulk or individually to the final home buyers. With a strong focus on market selection, GTIS chooses locations with good access to employment, retail, and highly rated schools for the first-time buyers or highly amenitized, lifestyle oriented active adult communities for baby boomers as part of its “barbell” strategy.
To date, GTIS has invested in ten development projects with over 3,000 condominium and multi-family units located in New York, Miami, San Francisco, Denver and Boulder – all markets with a highly-educated employee base.
The Urban Infill strategy focuses on the leading United States gateway markets that exhibit strong demand and price recovery combined with persistent supply shortages that result from a lack of available land and a highly onerous approvals process. GTIS’ urban projects cater to the luxury residential market supported by high-paying jobs in the financial, technology and entertainment sectors.
GTIS has acquired 16 land parcels with land for over 35,000 lots primarily in the Southeast, and the Southwest United States, where population and employment growth has been concentrated.
As homebuilders adopted a “land-light” strategy post-crisis, GTIS has played a leading role in the wholesale acquisition of land lots and subsequent retail sale to builders in markets characterized by strong population and job growth. In order to sell developed lots to local and national homebuilders, the firm pursues the acquisition of smaller subdivisions and larger master plans and, subsequently, completes planning, land and infrastructure development prior to sale.
