Approach

Vertical Ventures is focused on acquiring under-valued office & industrial properties within supply-constrained markets in Northern California.

We limit our acquisitions to assets where we have a clear and achievable strategy to create significant value by addressing temporary inefficiencies and/or repositioning the property relative to surrounding and competing properties.

Criteria

We work tirelessly to uncover opportunities with unexploited potential due to artificial and correctable impediments to value, including complex ownership structures, poor capitalization/lack of required capital, unsophisticated or inattentive property management, curable environmental conditions and other various advantageous circumstances.
