Since our founding in 1960 we have developed or acquired over 77,000 apartment homes and over 16.8 million square feet of commercial space.

GID is a privately held and fully integrated real estate company founded in 1960 that develops, owns, and operates a premier portfolio of existing and under-development properties valued at over $15 billion.  We have offices in Boston, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Denver.  We own and manage 124 investment properties and employ over 800 real estate professionals.

Our divisions specialize in research, capital markets, development, acquisitions, portfolio management, asset management, and property management.  We’re an experienced real estate private equity fund manager supported by a vertically-integrated platform with deep expertise across multiple asset classes.

During our 58-year history, we’ve acquired or developed over 77,000 residential units and 16.8 million square feet of commercial space in twenty four states. Our current portfolio includes 31,264 residential units and 3.9 million square feet of commercial space.  Our development activities include approximately 10,000 units and 1 million square feet of commercial space currently under construction or in the pipeline.

We have a venerable track record with proven financial results that span six decades.  GID has built its track record by pursuing investments using a combination of our own capital and allocations from long standing relationships with institutional investment partners, including the world’s largest pension funds and sovereign wealth funds.  We also have substantial relationships with major commercial real estate lenders and banking institutions around the globe.

We are uniquely positioned to develop, acquire, and operate sophisticated properties across a range of asset classes and markets in the United States. The company’s overall scale, breadth, depth, and financial capability position GID as one of the most comprehensive real estate platforms in the United States.  GID possesses the team and the balance sheet to sustain its performance for decades to come, and, importantly, to capitalize on the inevitable downturns within the real estate cycle.
