History

From the Ground Up

ST was built on a solid foundation, bringing together four private equity leaders managing billions of dollars in properties and some of the most recognized brands in the world. Our handpicked leadership delivers the greatest combination of industry experience and resources, offering buyers confidence and the highest standards of design aesthetic and quality.

•    Starwood Capital – Launched W Hotel; developed St. Regis into a global luxury hotel brand.
•    TPG Capital – Manages Del Monte Foods, J. Crew and Ducati brands; revitalized Burger King.
•    WLR LeFrak – Affiliated with a century of real estate excellence, from Los Angeles to London.   
•    Perry Capital – Hedge fund sponsor investing in public equity, private equity, debt and real estate.

In 2009, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) took control of Corus Bank in Chicago. When the FDIC chose the newly formed ST for a one-of-a-kind deal, they found a partner with a sound plan and the expertise to put it into action. Then in 2010, ST launched a nationwide portfolio of luxurious, design-driven homes.

Since then, ST has sold over $800 million in real estate – including more condos than anyone in the U.S. – becoming a standard-bearer for luxury homes in more than 20 cities. And we’re just getting started.
