bringing new energy
to forgotten spaces

Where some firms might see insurmountable challenges, we see opportunities. We have built a business model around acquiring properties and taking on redevelopment projects that other investment firms might shy away from.

We are also disciplined in our approach to improving communities through ethical development. This means that with every project we undertake, we put the needs of the community first, working side-by-side with local leaders to develop plans that align with their vision and complement the nearby architecture and landscape.

Above all, we believe in the importance of investing in areas where we can have the greatest positive impact on residents, businesses, and towns. With every project we consider, it is our goal to produce an outstanding result. 

KennMar’s philosophy takes a community-first approach.

KennMar’s approach to real estate investing was founded on the belief that every opportunity should F•O•C•U•S on G•O•O•D℠ and not only fulfill a need today, but for years to come. This means that with each project we undertake, we collaborate with local leaders to develop plans that align with their vision and create spaces that bring people together, inspire, and serve the community. While we are primarily focused on adding value through the development of land and the repurposing of existing buildings, we are also focused on sustainability and disciplined in our approach of doing G•O•O•D for our stakeholders, our investors, and the environment.

governance

“Governance” relates to KennMar’s values and ethics. By clearly defining practices and policies around issues such as board composition and diversity, accounting transparency, and information and data security, the company is able to promote positive behaviors such as equity and inclusion, standardized and audited financial reporting, and the process for protecting employees,’ clients’ and investors’ personal data.

obligation

As financial stewards, we have an obligation to preserve, protect and grow the investment dollars entrusted to us. As social stewards, we also believe we have a responsibility to build and repurpose properties that promote environmental sustainability. By sourcing sustainable materials, selecting energy efficient systems, implementing water conservation and waste reduction strategies, over the long-term we can make a positive impact on both the assets we manage and the environment.

obedience

At the heart of KennMar and its sister organization, KennMar Cares, is a company obedience designed to lift people up, to have the greatest positive impact in the communities where our properties and offices are located, and to foster a high-quality customer experience. At the end of the day, when we ask ourselves, “Have we done any good in the world today?” we should be able to answer with a resounding “Yes.”

decarbonization

This initiative is based on KennMar’s desire to support the reduction of greenhouse gases and to do our part in achieving net zero emissions by 2050. Research shows that some of the largest amounts of carbon dioxide production come from real estate properties. By repurposing existing buildings, we reduce the amount of demolition debris entering landfills, incorporate more energy efficient systems, and have less impact on natural resources. Additionally, by developing live, work, and play spaces in dense urban areas, we can also reduce the need for automobiles and promote walkability.
