We believe in the power of cities.

A peek into our past

Before we dove headfirst into Space Craft, we contributed to and led teams working on real estate, urban planning, and capital projects in geographies across the country. Over the course of these experiences, we wore a multitude of hats: strategy, underwriting, acquisition, zoning and entitlements, design, construction management, and operations.
