About Us

Headquartered in the greater Washington metropolitan area, American Real Estate Partners (AREP) is an institutional fund manager and operating partner focused on office, industrial, data center and residential/mixed-use repositioning and development throughout the East Coast.

Since our founding in 2003, we have deployed over $5.3B across targeted geographies and acquired more than 21M 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.
