Drawbridge is a sophisticated acquirer of short and long-term leased, single tenant buildings, including corporate sale-leasebacks and build-to-suits, and also of currently vacant buildings that lend themselves to repositioning and leasing to single tenants. Drawbridge focuses on the acquisition, development, and redevelopment of commercial office, R&D, life science, and industrial properties suitable for corporate tenants in select markets in the United States.


Drawbridge employs a two-tiered investment strategy, acquiring both core-plus investments that offer stable and increasing income, and select value-add opportunities where repositioning to stabilized, core-plus investments increases occupancy and cash flow. Drawbridge creates value for investors by building a scaled and increasingly diversified portfolio by focusing on established corporate relationships and corporate user requirements, including: leased strategic corporate facility acquisitions; sale-leasebacks from corporate sellers; value-add repositioning of assets with a pre-defined leasing strategy; conversions to higher and better uses; distressed/special situations; and build-to-suit developments. Drawbridge focuses prominently on secular growth markets in the United States markets with favorable supply and demand dynamics, and also considers other compelling markets with strong fundamentals.
