Our Strategy is to continue equity participation in larger retail projects, thus securing;

  • Class A Construction,
  • New long term leases,
  • Prime locations with vibrant innovative brands.

Lasting relationships with our partners, retailers and advisory team are integral to our strategy of reliably delivering a pipeline of institutional quality product.


Scale of development is important to IM. Our substantial balance sheet and growing confidence and reputation for delivery in the US enables us to consider a wide variety of opportunities from Single Tenant big box retail to Shopping Centers and mixed use projects.

  • Single Tenant or larger Grocery anchored projects
  • Urban and downtown retail with residential components on upper floors
  • New or stalled retail/mixed use projects which require the confidence of equity to kick start them; 150,000 – 750,000 sq feet +
  • Existing cash flowing shopping centers with repositioning opportunities in the short to medium term
  • Well located land; urban, or suburban sites capable of securing retail and mixed use entitlement

Markets of interest include:

  • Chicago
  • Major Mid-West markets
  • Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston, Texas

Most of all; we want relationships with people that will last. Whether it is relationships with retailers, developers, our banks, professionals or municipalities, IM is looking for the next development and repeat business. We bring financial strength, pragmatism and experience which add deliverability to the development process
