Headquartered in the greater Washington metropolitan area, American Real Estate Partners (AREP) is an institutional fund manager and operating partner focused on office and mixed-use repositioning and development in the Greater Mid-Atlantic Region.
Since our founding in 2003, we have deployed over $4B across targeted geographies and acquired more than 17M SQFT of class-A real estate. Our vertically integrated real estate platform provides expertise in all ownership disciplines including acquisitions and asset management, development and positioning, property management, leasing and market research, construction management, and engineering.
For each asset, our approach is to create a distinctive sense of place, one that authentically reflects the character of its surroundings and the people who work there. As such, everything we do is in the service of elevating the experience. This—in turn—makes our properties more desirable and maximizes returns for our investors. It’s not what we do that is different, it’s how we do it that makes all the difference.
AREP's mission and values are connected by the understanding that our success starts with yours; this has never been more relevant than right now. Our highest priority is the health, safety and comfort of our customers, employees and visitors.
As companies get ready to come back to the office, the protocols and investments we've put in place ensure our workplaces are ready for the new and shifting normal.
EXPERT FOCUS: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, AREP assembled a dedicated Wellness task force, each leaders in their field, to develop protocols, strategy and communications for the portfolio. Our task force continues to leverage their expertise and that of their Environmental Engineering & Industrial Hygienist partner, UL Industries, to further advance AREP's best-in-class Property Management and Building Operations standards. In addition to advising and affecting recommendations for BOMA’s Return to the Workplace Think Tank, we continue to follow, and proudly exceed recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and ASHRAE.
At AREP, we don’t simply develop buildings. We create inspired workplace environments. As such, each AREP property provides a distinct sense of place, authentically reflecting the character of its surroundings and the people who work there.
From curated workplace experiences to inspired amenities to signature service, we operate our business to please you—and, our job is never done. We call this the AREP return-on-experience and no other company approaches our business our way.
