Rowena Townhomes
Los Angeles, California

CSM Partners acquired this vacant site in Silver Lake, one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Los Angeles.  Leveraging our local knowledge, we were able to design 5 large townhomes plus an ADU on an irregular, 7,500 square foot lot, fully maximizing density and efficiency for this development.  Given the hillside geography, we also designed roof terraces for each home to capture the sweeping views of the San Gabriel Valley, increasing its property value.

Sierra Vista Townhomes
Mountain View, California

Situated on a 0.9 acre lot on the highly desirable Sierra Vista Avenue in Mountain View with two dilapidated buildings, CSM Partners is developing the site to build 14 high-end town homes.  The project maximized dwelling density and is well positioned for multi-family living while serving an under supplied market.  We created additional value by standardizing some of the units and improving interior efficiency, resulting in lower construction cost and better marketability.

Pine Street Redevelopment

CSM Partners acquired this irreplaceable Russian Hill infill parcel with a single-story structure onsite, and is redeveloping it into a 7-story, 20,000 square foot building with 15 residential units and one commercial unit, fully maximizing the use and density of the parcel.  Furthermore, through deliberate design, we were able to increase efficiency and sellable area to the building program, adding approximately $1 million in extra value for our investors.

Mission Street Feasibility Study

San Francisco, California

CSM Partners provided development feasibility services for the owner of the 4-story, downtown San Francisco office, who wished to redevelop it into a 20-story high-rise residential building.  We provided financial modeling, program development and massing study for the client.  By optimizing the design, we improved the car park layout and yielded more residential units than the client's original program, resulting in approximately $8 million in added value.

Laurel Commons Reposition

Oakland, California

Laurel Commons is a 5-unit apartment building in the vibrant Laurel neighborhood in Oakland, California. After years of neglect under previous ownership, CSM Partners acquired the dilapidated building with tremendous upside left unrealized.  Over the next 6 months, we re-tenanted and renovated it at a low capital cost.  As a result, the repositioned asset achieved over 45% upside in rental income and increased property value for our investors.
