W2 Real Estate Partners is an experienced, highly regarded real estate firm that specializes in the acquisition and development of commercial and multifamily real estate properties. The company is focused on superior product execution and on finding opportunities at the front end of localized real estate cycles when returns are at their greatest. W2 Real Estate Partners is the successor to the commercial and multifamily development operations of Simmons Vedder Partners, and the principals have worked together for over a decade as partners in SVP’s commercial and multifamily ventures. With the retirement of Tom Simmons from Simmons Vedder Partners, and the departure of other regional partners, this Austin-based unit has been spun off and rebranded as W2 Real Estate Partners. As a result of the varied backgrounds of our principals, our core competence is wide. We have successfully developed vertical mixed-use, office, warehouse, multi-family, student housing, senior housing, and land. The company has been responsible for the development and acquisition of over 8,000,000 square feet of office, industrial and residential projects with an aggregate value of over $2 Billion; these projects span such markets as Atlanta, Austin, Denver, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Oklahoma City, Orlando, and San Antonio. Through prudent speculation and careful research, W2 Real Estate Partners continues to pursue top locations in underserved markets for commercial and residential development with a primary focus in the Central Texas markets. W2 Real Estate Partners believes that given today’s capital markets and the growing inflexibility of the larger real estate operating companies, viable opportunities exist for a nimble well-capitalized real estate company to move quickly and identify trends before the herd mentality takes effect. In summary, W2 Real Estate Partners’ strategy is to outperform the market yield requirements on a risk-adjusted basis by identifying early trends and moving quickly to secure an advantage in the marketplace.
