Acquisitions & Dispositions
RockStep targets all shopping centers in the retail industry, specifically well-anchored regional malls, grocery, power, neighborhood and community community centers in secondary and tertiary markets.
We have carved out a unique niche and are one of the top private investment buyers in the country of distressed retail real estate assets and realizing strong returns with our innovative revitalization strategies.
We invest alongside local investors and our existing, growing group of investors from around the country in order to revitalize communities nationwide.
We believe the retail market has been tested for several years now. The assets have been stressed for so long, but traditional retail continues to stay highly profitable. While there is no doubt these properties need to be transformed, the current investment structure of malls has continued to be profitable.
RockStep likes to win! By concentrating our efforts on complex assets with transaction value of $5M to $75M where there is typically a scarcity of capital and less appetite for complexity, we feel we have an edge. We see opportunity in properties that provide challenges that we can overcome, through experience and ingenuity, to add value.
