Unison’s investment strategy for retail assets focuses on acquiring and repositioning, redeveloping or otherwise improving neighborhood and community shopping centers anchored by necessity-based retail. Specializing in the middle-market (transactions ranging from $5 million to $75 million), Unison implements hands-on operational improvements and provides suburban residents the necessary convenience of retail options.

The firm’s multi-family strategy focuses on acquiring properties with a history of strong occupancy in blue and grey collar communities with improving demographics and positive migration. The residents of these communities are the consumers of the necessity retail and drive the traffic to the shopping centers which Unison would also invest in.
