Real Estate Investment and Advisory

Creating value across all commercial real estate categories – retail, office and mixed-use – is a special focus of Origin Merchant Partners, on behalf of Canadian institutional investors and private owners. We bring all of our experience and knowledge to bear on such services as these:

Fund Investment Management. From single asset holdings to a diversified portfolio of urban properties, Origin Merchant Partners targets opportunities where engaged management is the difference. The implementation of high level asset strategies, focused on structural opportunities in asset performance, delivers enhanced returns. Monetization is realized through disposing of repositioned and stabilized properties at market appropriate timing.

Acquisitions Advisory. Through a vast network of connections we have built in commercial real estate, Origin Merchant Partners sources property acquisitions through channels beyond conventional brokerage listings and widely marketed opportunities. With extensive experience on the operating side, we assist clients in defining value-added property targets and in fully qualifying the opportunity. Our Principals provide transaction and underwriting guidance and manage the entire acquisition process on behalf of our clients.

Dispositions Advisory. Property owners engage Origin Merchant Partners to assist in evaluating the strategic exit of a property. In addition to strategic advice on current market dynamics, we fully underwrite transactions and implement any pre-market positioning strategies for the property, including leasing, capital structure, operational modifications and municipal status. Origin Merchant Partners will assist in negotiating the transaction and manage the entire transaction to completion.

Municipal Process and Entitlement. Clients engage Origin Merchant Partners for our considerable experience in navigating through the myriad of regulations and municipal processes that can profoundly affect a property’s worth. Supported by a strong network of working relationships with lawyers, planners, architects and consultants, we focus the collective approach on the best strategy for value enhancement. Our Principals are able to define and fully execute the municipal approach, helping clients secure the entitlements and value they seek.

Development Management. Years of experience in commercial real estate development allows us to provide clients with an effective platform for property development management. We take carriage of the municipal process and development approvals and assist in the translation of all aspects of the development plan to financial performance and asset value. Origin Merchant Partners executes the entire development process on behalf of clients, delivering a stabilized operating asset at completion.

Financings. Clients rely on Origin Merchant Partners to assist in evaluating and sourcing asset level market financings and for acquisition and construction facilities. When viewing the financial impact on the holding and disposition strategy for the property, capital structure evaluation is fully considered. In addition, Origin Merchant Partners sources, underwrites and negotiates financings on behalf of clients.
