Rethink Community

It is time to build communities
not buildings.

Our mission is to help stabilize neighborhoods and strengthen communities.

Rethink Capital Partners has launched a new real estate investment strategy, Rethink Community, focused on investing in master-planned communities located in underserved urban neighborhoods facing a widening inequality.

We work towards advancing health and wellbeing across America by investing in real estate projects that deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors.

AFFORDABILITY
INDEX

JOB GROWTH IN LIMITED AREAS

75% of job growth only found in limited number of metro areas Between 2000 and 2016, three-quarters of net job growth occurred in a narrow selection of metro areas resulting in inequalities across the country.

Opportunity Thesis

Now is the time to capitalize

Rethink Community believes now is the time to capitalize on this country's critical need for investment in our urban communities, especially in communities where infrastructure and social imbalances are destabilizing an otherwise robust regional economy.

Unique opportunities to invest

The complexities surrounding these imbalances are typically misunderstood and consequently often mispriced, creating unique opportunities for Rethink's platform to invest.

Team with a history of impact

Rethink Community has a seasoned team with a history of impact investing and demonstrated skill in site selection, and who will also work closely with local community leaders in a collaborative and transparent manner.

Master-planned investment model

Rethink Community's large-scale master-planned investment model is differentiated from the current investor marketplace, which typically chases one-off opportunities in a fragmented manner, often resulting in projects with rents at unsustainable levels.
