Shift Capital is a real estate impact group dedicated to revitalizing urban neighborhoods by creating shifts in environmental, social and economic viability.
At Shift Capital, we deploy an inclusive and concentrated development model, which seeks to minimize the negative impacts of gentrification, such as displacement, while positively impacting communities suffering from inter-generational poverty. Our model fills a critical equity gap in the real estate market place while addressing one of the defining issues of our society: Will we rebuild our cities to be beacons of inclusiveness or exclusiveness?
Our mission is to provide the urban communities we invest in with employment, and other measurable social and economic impacts by acquiring and improving the existing real estate stock and re-tenanting those assets with businesses and individuals that share our common vision.
