Financial Strength to Deliver

Backed by Related Companies with a portfolio that exceeds $60 billion in developments, Related California has unique access to unparalleled financing, substantial purchasing and negotiating leverage, and preferential relationships with equity and debt providers. Our strong balance sheets and long-term view allows us to weather the market cycles.

Community Partnerships

We approach every development with an eye toward collaboration and innovation.  As lifelong property owners committed to sustainability and stewardship, we form strong public-private partnerships with civic leaders, nonprofit organizations, public officials and neighbors throughout California resulting in inclusive developments that reflect the distinct character of each community.

Commitment to Sustainability

We are a leader in environmentally-conscious real estate development and operations.  Building performance and environmental responsibility are essential attributes in an exceptional development, and evidence of our dedication to excellence.  Our focus on urban and infill development is part of a commitment to smart growth and the environmental benefits of building in urban areas.

Long-Term Operator

Related operates on a ‘build and hold’ business model, which means we invest for the long-term.  We take pride in developing assets that stand the test of time and contribute to their surrounding neighborhoods for generations.

Vertically-Integrated Company

Related is a vertically-integrated company with unique access to in-house professionals experienced in architecture and design, planning and entitlements, finance, construction and property management.  We approach our developments holistically from start to finish, engaging in frequent and ongoing collaboration throughout the process, and our developments benefit from real-time knowledge related to costs, financing and best practices.

We have built some of the most creative and ambitious developments in the country. We always operate under the assumption that if you don’t do something special, you won’t get invited back.
