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.

Vertical Ventures recognizes the importance of ESG principles and is developing a platform to incorporate ESG principles throughout its business. Vertical Ventures is currently conducting an ESG materiality assessment with the help of Conservice ESG to identify and prioritize ESG issues most critical to our organization and our stakeholders. This assessment will allow us to set our baseline as well as create a roadmap for achieving ESG goals that align with our organizational priorities and investment strategy.


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.
