Learn how we can work together through all stages of acquisition, leasing and management.


At BWP, we consider our tenants our partners, collaborating from the early stages of design build-out. We work closely together with architects and designers to ensure concepts will meet the local community’s tastes and expectations and suggest sustainable building practices whenever possible. We assist in financing and offer flexible terms to aid in the process when it’s appropriate to do so. We are invested in your success, recognizing that viability and sustainability are critical to the project’s sustainability. Our deep tenant relationships and active involvement set us apart from most other landlords.


All BWP properties are professionally managed by us. Our principals take an active role in understanding the day-to-day activities and work together with the property management staff to maximize tenant retention, property operations, continual upgrades and project enhancements. Our projects are never completed and “put on a shelf”; rather, they are cared for and undergo continual curation so that they remain viable and sustainable.
