Northpond targets small to mid-cap properties (under $30M gross asset value and less than 100,000 SF) in both urban and suburban markets with high barriers to entry. We seek older underperforming properties with repositioning / redevelopment potential. These properties typically have a mismatch between physical and economic occupancy. Primary markets include the metropolitan areas of Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte and other markets identified domestically with similar characteristics.
