about

Seagram Properties

Founded in 2007, Seagram Properties is an innovative real estate focused Family Office that develops, repositions and asset manages quality Real Estate in some of the world’s most vibrant and exciting locales, principally New York and London.

We own and manage a portfolio of upscale multifamily and commercial properties in excellent locations with a diverse and high caliber tenant mix. The firm has been involved in transactions worth over $500 million since inception. As a Family Office we are fully invested in and committed to the success of each of our projects and we typically hold for the long term.

We have a value add, core-plus focus and are ahead of the curve in identifying opportunities and in reading the market. Driven by good design inside and out, we have a reputation as market innovators, creating and building quality assets where people want to live and work.

 

What we do

We typically purchase well-located but under performing, operationally inefficient or distressed market assets, between $2-$50 million and utilize our expertise in architecture, construction and design to re-position and add value. We also conceive and construct quality and innovative ground-up developments.

We are nimble and we are intuitive and we know how to read the market. We believe that good design is paramount, not only in architecture, function and flow, but also in attention to detail, from a faucet in a bathroom to the art in our lobbies.

From a boutique studio to a penthouse duplex or townhouse, the focus is always on excellence in design and how to create trendsetting living and working spaces that are functional and comfortable, whilst respecting a building’s history and heritage.

We are currently fully funded for all current projects but we will occasionally consider partnering with outside investors.  Fill out the contact form to stay informed of upcoming opportunities. We will also consider JV opportunities.
