Lightstone’s unique investment philosophy has allowed the company to thrive amid the competition, generating superior returns for investors. As active investors, we pursue investment strategy, property development and daily operations with equal rigor.
Lightstone aggressively seeks out properties that other investors have not yet discovered. Our vast experience with challenging real estate allows us to close even the most complex deals with speed and attention to detail.
We maintain one of the most diversified portfolios in the business, which helps us minimize risk. Where other investors see a “value” property, we see an untapped opportunity to transform a property and deliver higher returns.
Lightstone draws on diverse sources of capital to finance projects. We participate in deals at all levels of the capital structure, from equity to preferred equity to debt. Lightstone believes that the best deals are often the simplest in terms of structure, but we are also highly creative at building complex transactions. While other investors may be deterred by complexities and challenges such as distressed capital structures, Lightstone can navigate these obstacles with confidence, both in the United States and abroad.
Lightstone has invested in a large portfolio of multifamily residential housing, with over 10,500 units throughout the United States.
Lightstone has significant experience navigating the New York City residential housing market, which has proven its resilience time and again. We focus on game-changing residential developments in emerging, high growth neighborhoods through out Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
