Sustainable Equity Partners ("SEP") is a real estate investment firm focused on bringing energy-efficient and affordable multi-family housing to the Canadian market.
Our investment mandate is driven by 3 primary factors:
- multi-family rents tend to be insulated from economic downturns and provide a healthy hedge against an inflationary environment;
- the decline in housing affordability combined with long term immigration trends will continue to drive significant demand for rental housing in Canada; and
- high barriers to entry resulting from ever-increasing land costs, increase in construction costs and an arduous development approvals process.
SEP’s executive team is a multi-disciplinary group with vast experience in land development, construction, construction financing and ongoing asset management. Our executive team includes the principals of Pre-Con Builders Ltd. (“Pre-Con”), a 4th generation real estate construction company with over 100 years of combined construction management experience. Unlike many construction companies, Pre-Con provides in-house working drawings, engineering, construction and project management services for new build projects, allowing SEP to keep its processes and associated project costs as efficient as possible.
