Columbia’s experience in layering potent local and national unconventional financing sources such as Historic Tax Credits, New Markets Tax Credits, TIF/TAD, and incentives for renewables and energy efficiency, decreases our capital and operating basis and thus increases defensibility for our partners and our developments.

This mixed finance expertise combines with an effectiveness in leveraging public-private partnerships, an extensive network of longstanding industry relationships and superior sourcing and underwriting of investment and development opportunities in select southeastern markets to generate unique development and repositioning opportunities.

We believe that thoughtful investment in transitional neighborhoods can produce transformational outcomes that are routed in community development. We succeed on the ground in our projects by requiring and leading better design, placemaking, and sustainability, with results that show up in the bottom line.

Columbia Ventures is always interested in speaking with land owners, developers, governmental agencies and investors who are interested in discussing real estate challenges and opportunities with us. Interested parties should inquire here.
