About McCourt Partners

McCourt Partners is a full-service real estate development, investment, and management firm with over $1 billion of permanent capital dedicated to real estate strategies. Our portfolio of projects spans the globe, including investments in flagship projects in New York, Los Angeles, London, and Dallas. We oversee the development process from the perspective of an owner and an investor. Our team has successfully planned, designed, and constructed over 30 million square feet of office, hotel, residential, and mixed-use projects with a total value of over $30 billion. Together, we have extensive experience in transformative, large-scale complex projects that leverage deep relationships with real estate advisors, contractors, and government entities.

We seek opportunities with upside that can be unlocked with patient capital and creative business plan execution. Our investment team has extensive experience in premier gateway cities, as well as high-growth markets in Texas and South Florida. With an indefinite duration, we’re well positioned to deliver compounding returns through unique opportunities such as existing income-producing properties with long-term redevelopment potential, and under-utilized sites that require time and land-use expertise to perfect entitlements for their highest and best use.

  • Conduct business with an understanding and respect for the differences in customs, laws, regulations, and business operations among different jurisdictions, and cultures.
