SteelWave is a privately held full-service creative life science, creative office, and industrial real estate management firm.
We create spaces focused on elevated and exceptional user experiences. Through unparalleled design and thoughtful execution, we spark creativity and invigorate collaboration.
SteelWave and its predecessor companies, Legacy Partners Commercial and Lincoln Property West, have been active in commercial real estate for over 50 years. We are a vertically integrated real estate company, believing that an “all-hands-on deck” team approach to managing real estate assets is superior to an allocator’s model of outsourcing to third-party service providers.
Strength + Flexibility
We’ve built a reputation for successful execution by sourcing sound investments in our 7 key markets.
We operate in Northern California, Southern California, Denver, Seattle, Portland, Austin, and Phoenix. Since inception, our team has acquired, designed, developed, entitled, or managed 61.3M SF of industrial product and 51.2M SF of office product, 1,500 multifamily units, and 7.8M SF of life science R&D across our Western United States target markets at a combined cost of over $17.5 billion.
Vertically integrated & differentiated by design, leading our clients into a new era of commercial real estate.
We are one of the most seasoned real estate investment teams in the Western United States, investing across multiple market cycles with an elite group of capital providers for over 50 years. The 23 most senior SteelWave professionals have an average tenure of 22 years working together as a team, and 30 years in the real estate industry.
The saying goes: if you want something done right, do it yourself. That's why we do it all. We believe that an all-hands-on-deck team approach to managing real estate assets are superior to an allocator's model of outsourcing to a variety of third-party service providers. To that end, we've built a fully integrated development, acquisition, asset management, property management, leasing, architectural and construction company. We work collaboratively as a team to manage every aspect of each project, enabling us to provide consistent execution and attention to detail.
We embrace innovation and see opportunity where others can’t. We think without limitations to create change instead of waiting to adapt to change.
We are deeply passionate about what we do, how we do it and when we do it. We hire and nurture team members who have demonstrated a track record of passion and a commitment to excellence in everything that they do. These are the attributes that define the essence of who we are as individuals and as a company.
As creative problem-solvers, SteelWave creates exceptional environments and delivers enduring value for every investor, partner, and client.
