New Boston creates portfolios of value-orientated investments by focusing on the acquisition and development of well-located properties within the firm’s preferred sub-markets and regional investment platforms in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, for institutional and individual investors. The investment team builds high-level diversification by targeting traditional transaction types, such as reutilization of excess corporate facilities, recapitalizations of attractive assets that can’t be refinanced, and the redevelopment and repositioning of select office, warehouse/industrial and multi-family rental properties that are well located.

Market conditions vary across each region and are subject to a range of key market drivers and differing levels of exposure to economic distress. As a result, New Boston’s strategic focus is to capitalize on the best opportunities in each region.  The firm executes a consistent and repeatable investment and due diligence process driven by disciplined underwriting for evaluating potential deals and managing risk for:

  • Well-located commercial and residential properties at pricing below replacement cost that are currently generating cash flow
  • Uncovering market niches and undervalued real estate where we can add value through asset management
  • Recapitalizing distressed owners of quality assets with an equity infusion or pay off debt at a deep discount to acquire assets
  • Development or redevelopment of higher yielding properties where risk has been mitigated through pre-leasing or pre-sales

New Boston Fund’s urban value-add strategy provides a "triple bottom line" return by achieving a competitive rate of return while transforming urban and economically-targeted areas in a sustainable manner. We created the Urban Strategy America Fund to acquire, redevelop or develop residential, office, retail and warehouse/distribution properties and leverage New Boston’s regional investment platforms and vertically integrated structure. Our focus on “smart growth” and transit-oriented locations, as well as the reclamation of brownfield sites, will open up many areas to redevelopment while accomplishing other important public policy goals. Trends over the last decade indicate that investing in urban areas across the country offer not only considerable profitability, but also a way to revitalize communities.
