We have a track record of success that stems from our passion for beautiful real estate, our close connection to our properties, our experience in our markets and our interconnected understandings the diverse aspects of real estate development and management that are essential to extraordinary asset performance.
We understand the make-or-break links between the architect designing the space and the broker leasing space, every day operational hazards and their avoidance by clear lease language, or how local building codes and municipal regulations increase construction costs and turnover time.
Institutional expertise; family values. Our approach has been born from family valued real estate. Working closely with institutional level investors we have the structure to satisfy sophisticated investor requirements yet as a group of families, we are never far from the values of our founding based upon family, long-term value, hard work, discipline and integrity.
Like an artisan crafts its products, developing and managing true quality real estate is an enterprise that requires enormous attention, craft and care.
From agonizing over the placement of MEP systems to work for multiple tenancies to intimate review of architectural drawings to ensure implementation of our design visions to meticulous lease drafting, we pride ourselves on an obsession of the details that we know will pay dividends many years to come – through lower operating and maintenance costs, to faster lease ups or to higher sales.
We have invested in integration to solidify our ability to build the quality real estate we desire in a cost-effective manner and with less risk. We own our contractor to build what we want how we want, and we own our materials supplier to ensure we have the highest quality materials that will stand the test of time. See Our Affiliates.
Chevron Partners is an investor and top quality sponsor that seeks to remain a hands-on player through genuine asset-level value creation strategies rather than relying on cap rate compression, or pure financial engineering. We underwrite each transaction as an owner itself, and commit to align our interests with those of our investors and partners in offering a diversified range of risk-adjusted investment opportunities.
Our approach is guided by the partnership’s shared values of integrity, boom-or-bust discipline, thoughtful attention to management, a commitment to quality construction and materials, and bringing to bear operational experience that makes the difference between a good asset and a great asset.
We know the buildings we want, how to get them, and how to analyze them.
With a clear investment vision and reputation for offering and closing with integrity, we are able to identify the right properties for our investment objectives and draw on our experience to analyze them quickly and accurately. Sometimes the best deal is the one you don’t do. Our experience spans a variety of transactions that enable us to judiciously identify the deals that fit our investment objectives.
An extraordinary development idea is only as good as the one that can get cost effectively permitted.
Chevron’s professionals combine deep rooted local experience with strategic management to propose and shape the not only great development ideas but can also get them permitted and built. From choosing the right architect or tactfully working with the right community review boards, we often know what can get permitted and what can’t, helping us find the proper balance of design creativity with practical feasibility.
From concept to completion, what makes our work so rewarding is seeing our ideas come to fruition – whether as an office, home or hotel experience.
We manage all aspects of the development process from initial concept and permitting, consultant qualification and contracting, plan development and budgeting, construction management, through marketing and sales or leasing.
Strategic asset management is a passion of Chevron Partners and a profession in which we proudly excel.
Stemming from our philosophy of developing and managing the highest quality assets, we are not a high-level asset manager. Rather, we are hands-on and understand the enormous value that lies in the time-consuming attentive work to exploit every possible manner of revenue generation from a well-located and high quality property.
At Chevron we believe hands-on diligent and strategic property management is an essential element of asset performance in the short term and in the long term.
Chevron assets are self-managed by experienced professionals rather than using third party managers. We know how our building operates to best be able to optimize operations and we build long term relationships with our tenants to optimize our leasing strategies and reorganization efforts.
A Chevron Development is always distinguished by our passion for elegant aesthetic design and careful placement of major building systems as an essential element of long term asset performance. We pride ourselves on understanding the details of how it is built that can only come from having the skills to understand the architectural and engineering of the building and how this relates to the long term goals of the asset. Our people are not only architects, engineers and construction professionals, but they have the experience of working with our asset and property managers to ensure our long term goals are incorporated in the plans and construction.
We believe in the inherent value beautiful real estate and strive to create those rare properties that are cherished for the beauty and that we make admired for their functionality. This is the result of a multi-layered exhaustive process to critically combine luxury aesthetic design with complicated architectural and engineering requirements in a harmonious and cohesive manner with very real impacts on the performance of our assets.
Investing in integration to preserve quality.
The costs of high quality construction and materials have a direct impact on project feasibility and the difference between a good project and a great development is often the 15% of better finishes and quality of construction. To that end, Chevron Partners has invested heavily in controlling the quality of its projects through its affiliated companies Lazare Builders and Adige Design, allowing us to ensure the highest quality construction and most exclusive materials are reserved for our projects only.
