Madison Marquette, a real estate investment management firm with a fully integrated, national retail services platform, is advancing a strategic program of targeted acquisitions in urban infill gateway markets where select emerging districts offer enhanced investment opportunities.
Recently the company successfully acquired two key assets as part of a joint programmatic investment partnership, Bellevue Galleria and The Edge. Bellevue Galleria, a 200,000 square foot mixed-use property near Seattle, and The Edge, a trophy project in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, both offered significant investment upside with dense, affluent demographics and surging neighborhood popularity. Similar value-driven urban infill acquisitions will be announced in 2014.
“Madison Marquette is focused on identifying opportunities in emerging urban districts within infill markets that have substantial value as a direct offshoot of their expanding consumer base and fast-growing demand for accompanying retail,” said Eric Hohmann, President of Madison Marquette. “Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Miami, Dallas and Los Angeles are among the competitive gateway markets that we are focused on at this time,” added Mr. Hohmann.
Madison Marquette has established a strong localized presence in these markets, with strategically situated regional offices across the country, which serve to analyze core markets and evaluate asset opportunities. Madison Marquette’s investment, leasing, management, marketing, and development capabilities allow the company a competitive advantage in pursuing strategic assets in critical markets.
In 2014, Madison Marquette will continue to advance their strategic initiatives in advantageous locations across the United States. The company will also broaden its investment management platform further in an effort to strengthen its capital relationships both nationally and internationally.
