Washington, DC-based Firm Adds Innovative Investment Programs and Cutting-Edge Technologies to Extend Three Decades of Success
Washington, DC, Thursday, October 6, 2022 – Madison Marquette is positioning itself for future growth by refocusing on its roots as a real estate operator, investment manager and retail service provider, and by adding innovative investment programs and cutting-edge technologies.
“The cornerstone of our talents and abilities for 30 years has been identifying market opportunities, repurposing great assets and creating places that thrive as destinations. Moving forward, we will focus on our strengths and provide our capital partners and clients with diverse and creative investment management programs and with asset services offerings that are focused on retail and mixed-use property management, leasing and development,” said Madison Marquette Chairman Amer Hammour.
The Washington, DC-based investment management and real estate services firm’s renewed focus follows the recent sale of its office services business to global real estate services firm Avison Young. As part of that transaction, Madison Marquette will gain access to Avison Young’s cutting-edge data analytics platform that will enhance the full breadth of the firm’s experienced real estate investment practice.
“The changes we’re making reflect an entrepreneurial mindset, strategic vision and diligent focus on maximizing performance for clients and investors that provides insight and value at every stage of the real estate cycle,” said Madison Marquette Chief Executive Officer Vince Costantini. “In an industry increasingly impacted by technology, we see tremendous opportunity to improve and grow, especially with access to a new and powerful analytics tool for use in our core investment management practice across multiple asset classes, including office, multifamily, retail and retail mixed use.”
Since 1992, Madison Marquette has successfully identified unique market opportunities to source, invest, secure and manage sound investments for clients in both economic booms and downturns.
Madison Marquette continues to grow its transformative development business and invest in new properties. In Washington, DC, The Wharf is a $2 billion, 3.5 million sq. ft. mixed-use waterfront development. Also, in Washington, DC, the firm is developing Hillstead, formerly known as the Armed Forces Retirement Home, an 80-acre, 4.7 million sq. ft. mixed-use live, work, play and stay community. Madison Marquette is also investing in workforce housing, in office buildings, and in many retail, mixed-use and senior living properties.
Madison Marquette has recently launched innovative initiatives to capitalize on emerging market trends. The company’s Lemonade, Surplus Property Acquisition Program repositions portfolios of vacant or soon-to-be-vacant corporate-owned properties that are single-tenant stand-alone retail uses. The recent formation of Madison Highland Live/Work Lofts created a new category of real estate that offers distinct advantages to owners and investors by repurposing existing office buildings into live/work residential offices that meet current occupancy demands for convenient home office uses.
“Our evolution is now focused on making investments and providing services where we have a clear competitive advantage,” said Hammour.
