Portman Holdings “develops projects that enhance the environment for those who use them, while being sound investments for those who own and operate them,” according to the philosophy of our founder, John C. Portman, Jr.
Portman is a vertically integrated real estate development company with over sixty years of experience, an extensive global network, and a proven track record with leading financial institutions. Since Portman was founded in 1953, we have achieved success by delivering distinctive urban real estate developments that produce strong financial returns. Globally, we have developed more than 55 million square feet of office, hotel, trade mart, residential and mixed-use real estate across three continents, having raised and deployed in excess of $6.5 billion in actual costs of construction unadjusted for time or current values.
The Portman team is an efficient, well-rounded group of real estate development professionals with a specific focus—seeking out impactful urban development or redevelopment projects driven by forward-looking market insights. Our holistic approach to real estate development integrates all phases of development, beginning with project conceptualization and progressing through strategic planning, market, site analysis, financial analysis, budget coordination, debt and equity sourcing, project execution, leasing and asset management. Portman projects frequently require resiliency, innovation and creative problem solving; and they create long-term value for partners, investors, and communities.
We have partnered with major institutional capital sources such as pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, opportunity funds, major banks, family offices, and high net worth individuals as well as most major US and international banks. We are creative and flexible in terms of investment structure, working with capital partners to participate in single project, joint ventures, programmatic joint ventures, club deals, discretionary/comingled funds, and other structures that may be appropriate based on the needs of our partners and the project.
