Foundation Partners is a diversified, real-estate investment, development and marketing firm headquartered in Irvine, California.  With operations throughout the western hemisphere, Foundation Partners creates large-scale communities with a full range of housing, job and retail centers, recreation, and permanently preserved open spaces. Comprised of master planners, developers, investors and asset managers, Foundation Partners is committed to long-term ownership and management of a high-quality portfolio of real estate assets.
We have a long and established track record of success – over the past 14 years, our team has deployed over $3 billion of risk capital, and executed transactions totaling nearly $40 billion of enterprise value.  We target attractive risk-adjusted returns across a broad range of predominantly real estate equity and debt oriented investment strategies.  We specialize in acquiring, developing and marketing complicated developments that are otherwise difficult to monetize.


“We partner with whom we do business and maintain a shared sense of ownership”
– these core principals guide every aspect of our organization:




Teamwork is at the heart of how we operate. We take enormous pride in our one-firm approach, operating proactively and collaboratively across geographies to achieve superior results. We continually look to help one another and work together towards common goals.


We conduct ourselves with integrity in everything we do. Our word is our bond and “we say what we mean and we do what we say.” As a learning organization, we are self-critical — acknowledging our mistakes and trying always to learn from them.


People do business with people they like and trust. As a relationship-driven firm, we are deeply committed to forging long-term partnerships. We know it takes years to build a strong partnership and reputation, while they can be ruined in just a few minutes. We seek continually to understand and align the interests of all our partners, and we treat everyone with fairness and respect.


We aspire to be the best at what we do – we set high standards, and then continuously try to exceed them. We strive to create a meritocratic environment by attracting self-motivated, highly capable people and investing heavily in their development.
